Hello friends!

Firstly, I have a bit of bad news. Our second kickstarter, Devastated Dreams, was not funded. :( That makes things really tough for Infinitap Games, and I'm not sure what our future will hold. Honestly, given the success of Neverending Nightmares on kickstarter (thanks to all of you), I didn't expect us to fail, so I've been caught with my pants down...

However, we have exciting news! We created an Android build for OUYA, so we've been toying around with the idea of creating a touch controlled Android version for phones and tablets a while now. It seemed like a simple task, but it proved to be more challenging than we expected. We wanted to create a touch based control scheme that feels really good for the style of gameplay in Neverending Nightmares, so first we looked at other mobile games. However, nothing seemed to be a good match for moving around the world - especially with running. We had to do several prototypes, but in the end, I'm quite happy with our control scheme. If you try it out, let me know what you think in the comments!

Since we aren't sure how the touch controlled Neverending Nightmares would be received, we launched it as part of the Humble PC & Android Bundle 13 as well as to anyone who has Neverending Nightmares on Humble - including all backers who got the game! I think it is especially cool on tablets, but we put a lot of effort into making it translate onto both small screens as well as older phones. Theoretically, any Android device in the past 3-4 years should be able to run it, which was quite challenging.

If you have an iOS device and are wondering if we'll release there, I'm not sure. Android was easier because we already supported it on OUYA. In addition, we also couldn't give you an iOS version even if we made one since everything has to be distributed through Apple's store.

We'll consider bringing it to more mobile platforms/stores if people like the touch controls, but the whole mobile market is really scary with the dominance of freemium and $0.99 apps. If the mobile version is only available through Humble, then we can stick to our normal price of $14.99 and don't have to worry about undercutting our own sales.

Anyway, thank you so much for your support! Adding the Android version to your rewards is hopefully a good way of showing how appreciative I am.

Your friend,

Matt Gilgenbach

      Picked up the Humble Bundle a few days ago. Will install and try it out here in a bit.

      I'd happily pay for an iOS version if it came to pass. If you wanted to give it to backers, the closest you could do is discount it to $.99 for a very specific small time frame (say 3 hours some evening) and put an update out telling backers when this would be so they could pick it up. Either way, would love to see it on iOS! Thanks for all your hard work and passion Matt!

      The easiest way to get the android Neverending Nightmares is to use the Humble Android app: https://www.humblebundle.com/app
      Alternately, you can log into your humble account where you downloaded Neverending Nightmares and get the APK by selecting Android as your platform. Let me know if you are still having problems.

      @c The app was in my Humble account, in the Neverending Nightmares section is a drop down list to pick which version of the software it shows, Android was one of them. I use the Humble Android App to download the Humble Android stuff I've bought.

      As for Devastated Dreams like Larry I just wasn't caught enough by it to continue backing the game. Also Kickstarter is a lot tougher now, as some of the comments on your preview page suggested.

      I'm sorry to hear that your Devastated Dreams kickstarter didn't work out. But I was delighted to hear that an Android version of this game has been released. I look forward to playing it on my mobile. I'm afraid that I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to complicated app downloads. Would it be possible to post a quick instructions memo on how to download this game if you're a kickstarter backer?

      Thanks, I added this Humble Bundle to my collection. Looks like a good one.

      To be honest, I just wasn't interested in the story proposed for Devastated Dreams. I am definitely interested in future projects from Infinitap and I fully expect I will back and enjoy projects of yours in the future, just not that one.

      Happy to see this on Android, thank you.

      How do I get it on my device through Humble as a backer of the project without paying for the whole bundle?
