Will Small World for ipad be further updated? Tue, 23 November 2010 07:07
I find there is no more update events after Septermber and this forum is getting cold.

Does that mean the developers have abandon this game on iPad?

Welcome to the forum! Smile

No, I don't think it means that at all. It does mean that DoW attention may have shifted temporarily with the release of the long awaited Memoir '44 Online game. I believe that they will still support and develop the Small World iPad game! Cool

No we have not abandoned it at all. But there hasn't been - and won't be - an update in a while (not until sometime next year, don't know when yet) because what we're working on is fairly ambitious.

We'll let everyone know once we have something more concrete to talk about.

I don't know if you saw that DoW just launched an iPad version of Ticket to Ride. I would bet a fair amount of time went into that program, and now that it's out they can direct more attention to this app. It'll come and the version that we can play right now is still a ton of fun!! Cool

Never played it, just discovering it, quite fun so I bought all the expensions Smile

But so far Small World stays my favorite.

Anyway, two thumbs up for DOW for the quality of their games on the iPad. really well done !!!

Yeah, I've seen that. I have already bought it too.

But I honestly think that a (little) post from DoW crew does not ask a so great effort...

And at this point, I begin to think that an update is not certain...

Ok, here's an official post, just for you. Very Happy

There will be future updates made to Small World (and Ticket to Ride, for that matter). Just nothing that we feel comfortable discussing yet, feature- or schedule-wise.

When we are ready, you will all be the first to know, though.

No there isn't. You'd be much better off trying the PC or Mac version once it comes out of beta. Cool

Really looking forward to an expansion for this game.

I think I've played this game more than all my other ipad games put together so could really do with any additional content!

PLEASE!!! Update iPad's Small World to Retina Display... that's all I want.

This game's been forgotten for a year and a half now... :0(

Agreed, having started playing Ticket To Ride I want to try out Small World but I'm put off by the lack of updates since 2010 as a retina update is a must.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Update the app soon!!

A lot of work is going into Ticket to Ride, but Small World is so good it deserves some attention too!

My friends are willing to get the game but the fact it's not been updated for so long, and isn't updated for the new iPad's display, has put them off!

I would add my voice to the calls for an update, please!

Retina support would be really low on my list though; I would say the priorities are:

1. Proper multi-player (i.e. 3, 4 and 5 players)
2. Mix of players and NPC bots in the above
3. More expansions added
4. Basic "app" stuff - e.g ability to quit a game without quitting the app, ability to see opponents turn in-line rather than upside down

However, since any or all of the above could have been done at any time in the last 18 months, is it sadly fair to assume this is now an abandoned app?

I do hope not, because I love it.

DoW has assured us before that this is not an abandoned app! They are, however, a small crew of programmers who have done some incredible work on 4 major projects recently and may not have had a lot of time for updating Small World.

I, for one, will continue to look forward to an update sometime in the near future and until that comes I will continue to enjoy the app as it is. Cool Don't give up just yet...

Any news? Any news at all?

Even a "We do have plans... it's not abandoned!!" would be great.

This was one of my favorite apps (and one of my favorite board games) and I am hoping for something to revive its play on my iPad!

They've said this, I believe, already. DoW isn't really the kind of company to drop projects, especially not projects like Small World that is doing so well and still getting large expansions for the board game like the upcoming Small World Realms expansion! I agree, it would be nice to hear something, but just because we haven't does not mean it's a dead app. Smile

I still think we'll see things coming out for this app! Cool But I'm ever the optimist, so mine is a 'glass-is-half-full' kind of view. Rolling Eyes Razz

Well... I only ask - as the last official post on this thread that mentions anything about work being done is over a year old... from May 20, 2011... Smile

I am hopeful they haven't dropped it for other projects - but the long silence is what begged the question.

I understand the desire for more information! It's hard to not know what's going on and have such a long time with nothing happening in your game of interest. Very Happy

I'm not sure when they will update Small World, but I firmly believe it is still being supported. To explain the long silence, it's good to look at all of the recent activity in Days of Wonder and remember that this is a small crew working on all of this. The activity in the last year is, I believe:

- Memoir '44 Online official release and updates (this was a huge undertaking)
- Ticket to Ride iPad
- Ticket to Ride Pocket version
- Ticket to Ride App Store
- Ticket to Ride Steam
- Ticket to Ride iPad Retina Update

And those are only the digital projects they have worked on...this list doesn't even include all of the actual board games that I'm sure the crew was part of in some way! Smile

Basically they've been a busy bunch and they haven't just been sitting back ignoring the projects they have on the table. When they have time, or when it's on the list to complete, I suspect we'll see another update to Small World! Cool

I don't doubt their willingness to support the app... If something comes a long and breaks the existing app - sure! They'll fix it.

Just crossing my fingers for some sign of life by a DoW employee! Eric has in the past been good about popping in for an answer.

Notice anything in this picture? I'm pretty sure that Small World doesn't have any Game Center integration, so either this is just a mock-up or a little sneak peek of things to come.

Well, that didn't work out too well ...

I can't remember the last time I even bothered to sync Small World. It's sad, really: a once-cutting edge game becoming synonymous with "abandonware."

Comme tout le monde, je me désole de l'absence d'évolution sur la version iPad de Smallworld. Quel dommage d'abandonner une application qui partait sur de si bonnes bases... Sad

Mais il n'est pas trop tard... Days of wonder peut nous faire un beau cadeau pour cette fin d'année ! Very Happy

This is a fantastic solo playable app. I have played over 100 games and am itching for more. I have purchased all of the board games and introduced several co-workers to the game.

I would love to see multi player support for up top 5 players via gamecenter and the "be not afraid" expansion made available. I would gladly pay for both. As I would also pay for a "necromancer's island" expansion and an "underground" app. Please let me give you my money Wink

Just like they didn't abandon Ticket to Ride for Mac? Right.

I understand it's a small team, but this company makes enough money to hire more developers. Hell, make a Kickstarter if you have to. I'd be willing to pay up front to make this happen. I know lots of folks that would love to play this game if it had more than two players or online play. It's amazing that an app that was so well received in its inception was just abandoned out of the gate.

What are you talking about? Ticket to Ride for Mac has not been abandoned...it might have morphed some, but it's not abandoned!

Quote:

Again, I'm not sure what you're talking about. When this app first came out we just had the basic game...then there were some bug fixes. After a while we got the two in-app expansions that we could buy. Then some more bug fixes.

None of those indicate an app that was 'abandoned out of the gate'. Now don't get me wrong, I want to see more updates as well! I hope we see lots of expansions (and soon) but it's not fair to claim they abandoned it right away. Smile

I'm kind of surprised no one else has pointed this out yet:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/daysofwonder/small-world -2

Looks like we're finally getting an update to Small World for iPad! The deluxe/designer tokens for the physical board game look amazing, too.
