Kaalus just posted a blog update: https://kaalus.wordpress.com/2016/12/07/pistons/
There's some good news and some "bad" news.
The good news is, as you can see in the link, the other big new feature besides Furniture is the long requested Pistons. Very cool! And more good news, it will be out before Christmas.
Now the so called "bad" news...
The next version will not be called 1.30. 1.29 was the last version in 1.0 series. It will be 2.0. And it will be a new app in the store. That means you will need to buy it again to enjoy new features and continued updates. On the other hand, I intend to heavily discount it for a period of time, so that people who follow the blog and know about it can have it cheaply before the price goes back up before Christmas. I think that’s fair.
Before you get upset about shelling out $$ for a new app, remember - there will be a discount for us.
Follow the blog to get it. Plus IMHO Kaalus has always seriously underpriced Survivalcraft, which cost less than a cup of coffee at Starbucks. He's given us the best survival block game out there, and deserves to make some income for his efforts. Those of us that buy coffee can sacrifice a cup right? And those of us with parents or someone else paying our phone/device data plans - negotiate! I'm sure there's some dreaded chore or task you could take off their hands for a couple bucks.
Note Kaalus says the price will go back up before Christmas, so it's probably coming out very soon. He'll want to make some pre-Christmas sales. How soon I don't know. The discount price I don't know. Kaalus keeps a council of one, as you all know.
One last thought - as one commentor speculates
, perhaps the new app will be a good base for developing multiplayer.
So it should be a fun holiday season. Can't wait to see everyone's ideas for Furniture and Pistons!
Have a great Holiday Season!
