    Thank you so much, everyone. It's our first game so it definitely means a lot to us :)

    @Bigrand1 : Unfortunately no Android version planned for now, although I'd love to do one.

    The music is by Nick Grey!

    We'll update this space with news regularly. We hope to submit the game for approval very soon!

    Cheers,

    Rodolphe

    I love the minimalistic look and the atmospheric feel of the game.

    Would love to know more.
    Just the typical stuff. :)

    Premium or Freemium?
    Controls?
    Levels or endless?
    Estimated time of completion?

    Thanks!

    Hi @Rodolphe. I hope you don't mind me asking but did you use Codea to make this game?

    @Klink : Codea indeed!

    @Lavender :

    Premium or Freemium?
    Premium, the game will be priced 0,99$ with no IAP at all. I'd describe it as an atmospheric high score game.

    Controls?
    The goal was to make the game as "pure" as possible, so controls are fairly simple: one tap drops a white block, your main resource, and a double tap transforms a white block into a black one that isn't affected by gravity. There's more to it, but I don't want to spoil all the unlockable mechanics :)

    Levels or endless?
    The game can be played endlessly, however it features a "level" system of sorts, represented by achievements, which you unlock by reaching specific heights. And each achievement, in turn, unlocks a new (permanent) ability that makes the game a bit easier for your next runs, or at least mixes up the mechanics a bit.

    Estimated time of completion?
    Hard to say, as it's a high score game, I'd say you can play it until you're absolutely fed up with it :D It's pretty hard though, unlocking all the achievements and bonus should take some time.

    (The second trailer, on the first page, shows a bit more mechanics than the first one)

    Cheers,

    Rodolphe

    A few promo codes

    In Churning Seas will be out this Thursday! I'm a little bit nervous, let's say :)

    But, more to the point: we've got a very limited number (5) of promo codes left.

    Would anyone want one? You can contact us by private message if you want.
