    Some of you might remember way back over 4 years ago when our game Tiny Tower blew up on mobile and even won iPhone Game of the Year from Apple in 2011. Well it is coming up on 5 years since it was released and to celebrate we've been working on a giant overhaul of the game, adding a ton of new content and porting it to a new engine to allow it be cross platform and look and run better on modern devices. The trickiest part of this update is converting people's save games that are years old to our new format so if you've ever played the game we could use your help, even if you haven't actively played in a while!

    Here is what's new in the 5th Anniversary Edition:
    + 40 new roofs!
    + 32 new floors!
    + 24 new lobbies!
    + 10 new elevators!
    + 288 new missions!
    + 604 new BitBook posts!
    + 34 new costumes to unlock!
    + You can now rename your bitizens!
    + You can now trade bitizens with friends!
    + New QuickStock feature makes managing your tower even easier!

    Hoping to send out the first wave of invites to people who have registered in the next few days. Thanks!

    To spur your creativity here are some comedic situations that have arisen from our testing of the new bitizen renaming feature:

    When beta testing is over, can I move my data from beta version to release version?

    Everything will stay put automatically, yes.

    Awesome! I just recently finished all floors from the original version and TT Vegas too, so it'll be nice to have new stuff to do!

    Signing up now! Recently started playing again when I heard this was coming, although apparently lost all my old data.

    Will my save be what resumes on the beta? And that'll carry back over as I see you said.

    Whatever is on your device now is what will show during the beta.

    The only thing I want;

    Guys please make it similar to Death Star, where timers reduce by a minute ever time a peep goes to a certain floor. One thing I loved about that one and/or comical cutscenes? ##

    This is how it works with riders/timers in the new version, yes.

    Awesome, almost finished with TT Vegas. Redownloaded TT thinking I would have to start over (been awhile since I played it) and it found a save on the server that restored my game where I stopped last :)

    Oh I have been waiting for this for a long, long time. :D Thanks for revisiting my all time favourite iOS game!!

    Question; will you guys be taking advantage of Notification Center widgets? I always wished there was something there, like a way o stay engaged with the game without actually opening the app. I know a "restock all" option would be a little too much, but something minor would work. Just curious what you think about utilizing that

    Signed up! I loved the original, Vegas, and the short-lived Death Star. I was wondering what all the tweeted screenshots was hinting at! :p
