    Thank you for your replies. Yea, I really took the slow road. I think there was a month I just did the daily lighthouse and trash collecting quests. I will likely keep going and amassing pearls to buy future items I don't like crafting. If I stop playing, I will add Seabeard to AppShopper so I get notified when the update hits :)

    My thing these days is trying to finish my hat collection. It's keeping me going.

    At the very least do your trash and lighthouse duties, but don't forget Burt Wolfbane, we need those pearls!

    Might be the game center bug.

    Blacksmith?

    Just saw on p. 199 mention of a Blacksmith. Is this character the same as the Miner? If not, how do earn the Blacksmith?

    Haven't played much of it, but I've been loving the game so far, specially since it is the closest we have to an Animal Crossing game until Nintendo launches its own next year.

    Any words from the developers? I kinda hate that the game hasn't received an update for more than a year, and it would be sad that the OS keeps getting updates and this game will eventually die due to iOS' stupid lack of retrocompatibility. Apparently Backflip Studios is just pouring all of their work time into Dragonvale, which I think is wasted potential, since this games is beyond awesome.

    Couple of things:
    Castaway is more like Animal Crossing than Seabeard ever was. And, it is still being developed.
    Second, Hand Circus was the developer of Seabeard and I don't think that they are still around. Which is a shame because Seabeard had a lot of potential to be great.

    Which one of the like 50 castaway games on the AppStore?

    EDIT: Nevermind, I found it (the "it's like Animal Crossing" line in the description gave it away). Still, it's a shame, I was getting attached to the Windwaker-like graphics of Seabeard, but knowing it is a dead app takes away any fun I'm having with it.

    EDIT 2: Talk about an ugly game, crappy controls and annoying pop ups. Never mind, I guess I'll just wait until Nintendo follows through and releases its own animal crossing game.

    The game received a 64 bit compatibility update along with some bug fixes, is this game still being developed? It was a fun game.

    This update dropped iPad Mini 1st gen support. If this game is being worked on again, could the devs please restore support for this device? I'm now stuck with a permanent AppStore update marker that can't be resolved because of this new device-specific restriction. :(

    Help with identifying land animals

    I'm having a lot of trouble trying to find the coati. I've had no luck trying to finding it even though I've visited Ironblack City at night several times now. If anybody with experience is still on this thread could you please help me? Thanks, John.
