iPad version in sight!
After months of intense coding, and the help of backers who spent countless hours beta-testing Small World 2 on their device, we are now mere weeks away from shipping Small World 2 on the iPad!
Our current schedule is as follows:
- Barring any major last minute hiccup, we will submit a copy of Small World 2 to Apple for review at the end of this week
- Taking into account Labor Day, and the review turnaround time necessary for Apple to approve an app, we expect to release Small World 2 for iPad worldwide on Thursday, September 12
What this means for you:
If you contributed to this campaign at the Skeletons level or higher, and selected iPad as your platform of choice, you may receive a copy of the current (2+ years old) version Small World for iPad, ahead of the launch of Small World 2 on September 12. You will be able to play this version right away and update it to the newest version once Small World 2 ships.
Due to app distribution limitations outside of our control, how you receive your copy of Small World for iPad will vary on a country-by-country basis:
US ONLY - On Wednesday, September 4, a redemption code will be posted on your rewards page at www.daysofwonder.com/ks along with instructions on how to use this code to redeem your copy of the current version of Small World from the iPad app store.
Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Russia, Singapore??, Slovakia, Spain, Swede, Switzerland, United Kingdom - On Wednesday, September 4, you will receive an e-mail from Apple iTunes App Store that will let you redeem a copy of the current version of Small World on the iPad app store.
Brazil, Brunei, Chile, Croatia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Israel, Luxembourg, Mexico, Peru, Portugal, Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Rest of the World - On Thursday, September 12, you will receive an e-mail from Days of Wonder containing a promotional code and instructions on how to use this code to redeem your copy of Small World 2 from the iPad app store.
If you contributed to this campaign at the Tritons level, you should already own a copy of Small World. Come September 12, you will be able to update it to Small World 2 like you would update any other app on your iPad.
All backers who contributed at the Tritons level or higher will be able to unlock the new Kickstarter races & special powers simply by logging on our server the first time they play an online game.
We will then move onto the Steam and Android versions of the game. We don't know when these will ship yet, but will post an update once we know more.
