    Heya. Andy and I have been working on this game for a little while now along with 3 Sprockets and Bandai-Namco. The gameplay trailer is on the front page today, but I wanted to post this here in case you had any questions.



    Yes, the game supports MFi controllers.
    No, we cannot announce the release date yet. But it is very soon!

    The trailer looks great. I've been almost Pac-man'ed to death in my life but this looks really fresh.

    Looks fun.

    The perspective is interesting, though I'd love an 8-bit mode that looked like a scrolling arcade screen.

    Initially I had the same thought, but when it comes down to it, I just want to play 256 right now! I've watched the trailer at least 5 times in the last 24 hours. I never do that. I wonder if "soon" means this month?

    Edit: Also, the remake/remix of the introduction song is slowdown awesome!
    Edit 2: Make that 7 times...

    Yeah im pretty amped for this too.

    I like Quest Keeper over Crossy Road (and I do love both!) so Quest Keeper-esque with a more collect-them-dots-and-powerups Pacman-style objective in an endless angle is definitely something i would love to spend hours on.

    I've been having a lot of fun playing the recently switched to premium Pac-Man Championship Edition DX. So i am really looking forward to Pac-Man 256 being released. Looks like the 3 developers have made a great game even greater.

    Does anyone happen to know if this will be released as a premium game or possibly more along the lines of Crossy Road?

    Either premium or freemium will work for me. It could be a pay once, play forever thing, or a freemium model we know Hipster Whale knows how to make best.

    We've been talking about the way the IAP works in this game. It is free, and then you get 6 credits to play which recharge over time. There are three in-app purchases.

    1. Immediately refill and overcharge to 12 credits.
    2. Infinite credits forever.
    3. Coin doubler.

    Essentially if you purchase 2 & 3 then you have the premium experience and there is no more you can buy.

    You can watch ads to speed up coin collection or speed up credit refill if you haven't already purchased option 2.

    Hope that's clear!

    Sounds good to me. Basically a trial mode, and unlock-the-full-game option. Now, is it out yet? ;)

    In last night's Pacman 256 stream on Mobcrush, the Devs said "soon" and "summer" only with no specific date announced.
