New platforms

All the hustle and bustle around the 1.27 release, but I haven’t told you the most important news about it yet.

With the new engine, there is support for new platforms! Namely Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows Store. I will be submitting 1.27 there soon.

download

Windows Store submission means that for the first time you will be able to play Survivalcraft on your powerful PCs, using mouse and keyboard. Provided you have Windows 8.1 of course. I spent a lot of time updating mouse/keyboard support so that they are production ready and not just some development hack like in 1.26.

The Windows Store version has been running smoothly for some time now, so I have high hopes for the submission success. However, as this is a completely new platform, our mileage may vary. We will see.

1.27 is the biggest release for a long time.

    NICE!. Isn’t it already on WP8.1? or is it still tailored to 8.0?

    • Posted April 2, 2015 at 06:04 | Permalink | Reply

      All this time we had a WP8 app :O. Nonetheless it didn’t result in performance hampering as the game was very smooth even in WP8.1.

      But one thing, is this going to be a universal app?

    Its amazing how your now making it possible to play SurvivalCraft on the PC. But I was wondering if I had to pay for it again?

    This is fantastic. I might just be willing to deal with Windows 8.1 now.

    I’ve been playong SC a LOT on my iPhone, and I just love the game!!! However, after trapping dozens of lions, building a dozen nice houses, collecting huge stashes of meat, building roads with lights etc I still feel like I’m not ‘surviving’…

    My suggestion: women!
    A woman would need a house of her own, lots of food and chocolate, and would generate offspring for a true survival of the species :-)

    • Posted April 1, 2015 at 22:56 | Permalink | Reply

      taming: put a dress on her
      reproduction: give her chocolate in a heart-shaped box and a child will be spawned the next day
      use: put children to work on cotton fields or digging deep mines

    also, and I’m not trying to rush you or be rude when I tell you this because I’m sure you’ve heard these before, but if you could increase the height above bedrock, because the sky IS the limit at the moment, make wolves tamable (I’m sure you hear that often and you’re probably sick and tired of hearing it, but you have to admit, dogs would be cool.) Also, and I don’t know if you hear this often, but if you could somehow find a way to add in automobiles and airplanes, that’d be cool, (and not like big commercial jets, but like little WWI bi planes) If you could somehow find the time to add all this, I’d be so grateful. Keep up the good work. Thanks for the awesome game! (And sorry for the off requests, but hey.)

    Why not Windows 7?
    The timeline of Windows:
    Windows XP: All companys (who suply computers to their employees) and everybody gets.
    Windows *cough* Vista: Nobody uses.
    Windows 7: All companies and everybody gets.
    Windows 8: Some people get but no large companies upgrade. If you work for the NHS (National Health Service for any non-British out there) you will have Windows 7 as your work computer.

    What I don’t understand is why Kaalus has released to Windows 8 without releasing to Windows 7. Look at this:
    http://www.netmarketshare.com/operating-system-market-share.aspx?qprid=10&qpcustomd=0
    Windows 7 has 58.04% of the market. Windows 8 has 3.52. The computers in this room as I am typing this are:
    2 Windows 7
    2 iPod touch 4
    1 iPhone 4S
    1 Raspberry Pi
    That’s three iOS 6, two Windows 7 and one Raspbian Linux.

    Also, Windows 8 is designed around touch screen computers like the Surface Pro 3. How is that going to work?

    • Posted April 2, 2015 at 06:12 | Permalink | Reply

      Well, Windows 8.1 is not just for computers. It has tablets too in its manifold. So I’m guessing with the Windows 8.1 version you can play with pc controls as well as touch. That’s a big market to miss. Also, Windows 7 doesen’t have an App Store, so no automatic updating or easier updating for Kaalus. That means, redownloading the game after EVERY update.

      Oh, for the devices I have, I have a Lumia 525, an iPad 4 and SGT4(no SC on them) and a Windows 7 laptop.

      Windows 8 and Windows 8.1’s start screen is pretty much acts like iOS. Even though people say that Windows 8 sucks because of the new “hideous” and “why microsoft why?” start screen. Windows 7 mostly has apps that run on .exe, and the Windows 8s can run on .exe and app store apps. I would say that Windows Vista sucks the most, don’t ask… it sucks the most!

    I’ve been waiting so long for you to release it on PC!!! I’ve always used Windows 8 and it automatically updated me to 8.1. It’s my favourite OS and now I can even play Survivalcraft on it just by buying it from the once useless Windows store! (P.S. It should say Shaggy1939 at the top, not Euan Laa)

    This is bloody awesome news!!
    WINDOWS 7 USERS DON’T WORRY, I HAVE GOOD NEWS FOR YOU! In a few months Microsoft will be releasing Windows 10 as an update to 7/8/8.1 and it will be FREE! I’ve been using Windows 10 Dev preview for a while now and again don’t stress it is way better than Win 8.
    Win 10 is to Win 8 what Win 7 was to Vista.
    Win 10 feels like an awesome version of Win7 . I have been testing a few of my Win 8 apps out on Win 10 and for the most part seem to work nicely.

    Win 10 apps are also cross platform (Universal Apps so it should be a matter of buy once play anywhere). I don’t know tho if that will that will be the case for existing user however I personally don’t mind purchasing it once again, Kaalus has done so much for us at such a little cost.

    The bottom line is Win 7 users should be able to play SC when Win 10 comes out.

    Anyway good on you Kaalus!

    Btw if you need a tester for SC on Win 10 give me shout
