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.
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.
