Will Buzz Aldrin's SPM receive iPad Pro update?

Post by tactfulgamer » Tue Dec 22, 2015 3:08 am

I am being gifted an iPad Pro :)

Was hoping this game would receive an optimized update thats gives it ability to multitask with iPad Pro multitask feature (side by side, next to another open app - view)

Also, please include pencil support. Currently, I play this game only on my iPad... everywhere. On my sofa, out about, in bed. The whole time using my bamboo stylus. I find it more comfortable for me as far ergonomics and arm bend fatigue (not having to reach all the way out to different sectors of the screen) --> some may think that's lazy, but try playing this game for hours and see if your arm bending area that's opposite end of your elbow don't start catching major discomfort. Stylus greatly alleviates this. At least for me.

*Maybe* include hi res images to accomdate the iPP screen hi fidelity. If you can't outright due to monetary resources. I understand. I am realistic. You are a business and this game was funded via Kickstarter. This is not a game that generates cash flow for your company every month. It's not a AAA title.

It's us in the minority whom enjoy this game. That said -- I would be more than willing, outright happy! to pay for such an update to make up the difference of you having to use up your resources for such an undertaking. In my opinion, which that's what it is, nothing more, I can see anyone who owns an iPad Pro, whom understands your situation, appreciates the game on mobile - will also be willing to pay for an update. I pay for my haircut everymonth, I pay to see a movie everytime I go watch it. I pay for toilet paper all the time.

I see nothing wrong with paying for an update and *nurturing* the dev who is doing this on a budget with a small team. The way I see it: Take care of my entertainment, make it premium and good, and I will treat you like an App Store by funneling towards your success for every iteration of growth you put towards this game.

Oh and one more thing--> please increase the font size *drastically* for the iPad Pro, if you are updating us.

Hello tactfulgamer,

Lucky you! I've played around with an iPad Pro and it's an awesome device! :)

For the moment there are no immediate plans to provide a version of SPM for iPad Pro, though I might explore the possibility sometime in 2016. It would be nice to find out whether iPad Pros are capable of rendering the game using textures with the same level of quality than the desktop version!

Cheers,
