Update #16

Death Inc. iPad and Multiplayer revealed

Hi folks,

It’s been a busy week for us at Ambient!

We’re very pleased to show two important and often requested features of Death Inc:
- iPad support!
- Cooperative multiplayer!

Watch the video below and weep salty tears of happiness:

For those of you can’t view the video above on their mobile devices but still want to watch, this link is for you.

Thank you all so much again for your support and backing, we’re very close to reaching 3000 backers which quite frankly is amazing! We also had some great news yesterday, we managed to get into the top 100 of Steam Greenlight, but we still need your upvotes so click here to do so if you haven't already!

- Mike

      Nice! It is a natural fit for a touchscreen. Good luck!

      PS Do you need someone to chat to about that touch camera control code? I've written pretty much identical, and I could talk you through what I did to get it robust.

      Android tablet version too please!

      At least the same amount if not more people use Android. Why don't developers see that? Please make an Android version as well!

      I'd rather have an Android version than an iPad one please.

      I think the last thing you guys could use is a level editor or modding tools.

      Like those below, I don't want to start a religious war about mobile OS stuff. I just want to let you know that I'm an Android user (phone and tablet).

      Adding a Android/iPad pledge level could help a lot i think. The average price for paid mobile apps is around 2.99$

      Wow, just watched the multiplayer part of the video; that has serious potential, as you say both for co-op and PvP (kinda).

      What's wrong with everyone? Back this!!

      (Afraid I can't push any higher with mine, but already more than doubled it...)

      Far more iPad users than Android tablet users I'd have thought, but given that it's using Unity I'd guess an Android version may well be doable.

      What next, Leap support?! http://www.leapmotion.com

      Really need some momentum for these last 8 days. This just has to be funded!
      Keep up the good work...

      I won't be discussing my dislike for Apple stuff to avoid placing troll bait, however tempting it may be, but how about Android versions? The fact that pretty much any recent statistic shows that there are more Android users than iOS users should be a rather convincing argument...

      Great update, really hoping this gets more media coverage. Good job!

      As requested, I am producing weepy salty tears of happiness.

      THIS IS AWESOME!!!! Now only if iPhone support could follow in the months to come.

      Again, THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Creator Jack Northcott (Sackinima) on February 26, 2013

      That's awesome!

      Still a long way to go! We all need to pull in and promote this to get it done!
