Hi jojo95,

Thanks for the kind feedback.

I know people aren't really interested in the nitty gritty details, but we forked our development branch when starting multiplayer, and have only added iPad retina support in that branch. Going back and redoing it in our stable 1.6.5 branch (current store version) would take us an additional week or so. That and the fact that it takes up to two weeks for Apple to approve updates means fans wouldn't get the retina update much sooner anyways, and would delay multiplayer. So... hang in there please -- we're working as fast as we can on this.

Thanks,
Eddy

Hi Eddy,

Thanks for responding to us on this forum. Just know we love the game you guys made!

Have you decided yet whether the new version will be an update for current owners, or will it need to be repurchased? I'm contemplating buying the iPad version (have android version) now, but if it will be a new purchase, I'll just wait a bit.

Thanks for the support okEric. We're planning on releasing this all (multiplayer, etc.) as one, big, free update. =D

Cheers,
Eddy

Thanks for your awesome support! I bought Osmos for my Xoom and recently got the new iPad and I'm definitely glad you've given me a reason to rebuy your game with the new graphics. I imagine it looks pretty beautiful on here with a few million more pixels. Simple beauty. Keep it up!

Yes, that are all reasonable arguments, but it's just that you should have already started with the plan to release the retina update before even starting to work on the multiplayer update...
Anyway, we are all happy that a update is coming, given that so many developers aren't even caring about any hardware/software upadate in the devices... (many aren't even supporting iOS' multitasking, to say nothing about retina displays :( )

So, thank you for standing up-to-date, for not being neglectful and for caring about your customers! :D

OMG I can't stand waiting. I keep checking the damn app store nearly every day hoping the last updated date changes from 2010 to today.

Any new updates on progress?

It's not on the store yet, but we're in beta testing mode now and are about to open things up to the public. IF you're willing to test multiplayer and give us your feedback, we'd be happy to send you a build which includes retina support! What say ye?

If so, send us an email at our webmaster address!

Cheers,
Eddy
