Thanks to the Kickstarter community and your help and support, Islands of Diamonds hit an important milestone today that would not have been possible without the success of our campaign.
We have begun our "soft launch" on Google Play (formerly the Android Marketplace) today. Our store page can be found here.
Our launch is "soft" because of the huge amount of Android powered devices in market. We have launched today with an initial test segment of the market – support for 100+ tablets – and will be closely monitoring downloads, feedback, and reporting to assess device compatibility and ensure that our Android release is stable for as many players as possible.
Over the coming weeks we will be adding additional tablet support and finally (mid-sized screen) smartphone support, so stay tuned for compatibility news regarding your Android device.
We will be reaching out directly to our supporters who requested an Android version of Islands of Diamonds later in the month as we stabilize our device support. At that point we will be handing out free downloads as promised.
Finally, we will mark our official public launch (tentatively planned for late May, early June) by adding the free version of our game, "Islands of Diamonds Lite" to Google Play.
Stay tuned for more Android news in the coming weeks, and once again, thank you, thank you, thank you.
