    Ah, here we are ;)
    Very nice to finally see the second of Robert's brainchildren released.
    Absolutely awesome stuff, as usual. Still playing through the storymode, and that one is off to a great start as well. Who knew Robert is a good storyteller on top of everything else, too? :D Impressions so far are mostly from exploring freely, and what my son and I have seen so far is absolutely gorgeous.

    Indeed it is. Just like with about everything else, you can customise it.
    You need to switch off the 30fps limiter first, though: In the menu, go to Quality, then Effects. There you have the 30fps toggle and a "show FPS" option.
    I didn't crank everything up to max yet on my big 2017 iPad Pro; with the default settings for that device, it's running at a constant 59-60 fps. Quite sure it could go higher; but there seems to be a hard limit at 60, most likely a restriction Apple put into their graphics driver.

    One-liner-impression: US$3.99 for candies alone makes it a steal, but you need to have some good hardware to get the best out of it.

    Yeah im sorry about that. It heavier than BrightRidge, so it doesnt officially support the devices listed as not compatible. I mean it will open on them, but it will likely crash depending on the circumstances, so i limited official support to 2gb devices. Im going to keep working on it to optimize it more, so you never know.

    Edit: i sent you a code for a free copy so you can try it without risk on an unsupported device:)

    Yes depending on the device and where you are in the game. I cant force 60fps, but you can unlock the frame rate so that it can go as hugh as 60fps. beware though that this will likely sue a lot more power and battery. Goto Options-quality-effects and unlock 30 fps option. You can show the fps on screen too if it interests you, but know that showing it actually slows down the frame rate a touch too because it has to draw that dynamic number.

    Thank you:) I try to give it a lot of atmosphere. Its bigger than my first game but more open, there is more weather and places underground to explore, and i think a larger story and a mode to explore mini dungeons and find shape changes.

    Thanks for answering they're question:) Im glad you know so much about the game. And also for the encouragement. This game was a really hard one because a lot of tech issues popped up over the course of the development, because Unity, Android, IOS, MAcOS and Xcode all implemented new versions that changed a lot of things performance and tech wise, so it was rougher than i wanted. But i am very glad it is out,a nd i have already been watching people play, and like with BrightRidge i am learning a bunch of things and plan several updates to help polish the game over the next little while. I also learned that technology progressing can be a big problem over a 3 year development cycle, so i have been planning a way to mitigate that in my next game - code name Project Wilderless - and get more polish and performance. I am very happy your son likes it, and i hope other people enjoy it too. I was actually the slightest bit apprehensive that the story may be a bit controversial, but so far people seem to enjoy it and I am not really a trained storyteller, so again i just kept the the story and the characters simple and hope it makes sense :) Btw i think the first book in the librarium in the castle was written by a sage called Nulzon if you pass by it;)

    Yeah, i just found a post from august 2017 and i was like "it will be ready in a couple of months":) Wow was i wrong. But its here in all its rough glory and im glad people can visit it and enjoy the story, or just walk around and explore the world and test out all the options. Thanks for taking a moment to write and let me know you like the look of it.

    Nicely summed up:) Yeah, it works best on 2gb devices. It was sometimes crashing on earlier ones so i removed official support for them, even though its technically possible - if anyone has an earlier device let me know, i have a few codes so you can try it for free so you wont get stuck - but on the new supported devices, especially newer ones, it runs really well and it very solid, and you can even raise the quality quite high depending on what your priorities are.

    I'll be honest - It's probably pretty fast compared to lighter games because the game is an energy hog, and probably faster if you switch to the 60fps option.

    Thank you, just played about 40 min and it crashed maybe 3 times. Not too bad considering. Seriously thinking about buying a new Ipad now.

    I'm glad the free code worked, and its cool that the game worked at all on an unsupported device. It iPAd Mini 2, right? Who knows, maybe as i optimize i could even backport full support to these.

    I get it about thinking about a new iPAd. I bought an ipad pro 2017 as an upgrade from my iPad Air 2 and i really noticed the difference:)
