Any updates on a timetable?
Would they be releasing it fully patched (ie, 1.47?)

Hi again ! Long time no see !

Well, I must admit, when I tried the demo of GSB, I was quite surprised... An addicting and simple game like I like... Furthermore, an indie one (I love hunting indies games)...

Then, somewhere last year, my computer died. I was disgussed by Windows... And I bought a mac this year. I totally had forgotten about GSB. And suddenly, I fall on a video on youtube. I came back and was trully surprised to find a mac version ! Native ! Youhou ! Great deal ! I downloaded the demo, and I must say again, I'm double impressed ! It runs smoothly on my 27" screen (unlike other indie games that spent some time also for a mac version of their games, which I won't mention the name). It's beautiful... It's fun... It's addictive... Keep up the good work ! (I bought the gold version and the fourth expansion pack eyes closed after only one try at the demo)...

Love your game, and I truly hope that you won't stop the effort of releasing your games also on the mac.

PS : I know, there is no aim to my post, just letting the creator know I'm impressed and really happy with the game !
PPS : Maybe it's already mentioned somewhere but here is : I had difficulties to find the mac version. Only found it in this post. It could be nice to add a link at your homepage linking for the mac version, and add a windows version title in the demo download at the homepage. I downloaded the exe file the first time... which is of course non sense to a mac user. Also, it could be great if you could update your youtube videos with PC/Mac instead of just PC.

Cool, just picked up the $5.99 pack on RMG...thank again for offering pricing choices for those on tighter budgets than my own, it shows real class, and has earned both my business and my respect.

Just wondering though, about the Steam vs. RMG thing for you - which one do you get a better deal from? I'd be more than happy to adjust my purchasing habits in a way that would benefit you guys.

Thanks again!

I bought this game quite a while ago, and it was at V1.42.

Still is.

For some reason the updates don't work.

cliffski is there any chance of bringing GSB onto the iPad as you now have it on the Mac?

I got the email today about it and thought it was out for iPod/iPad as the link was for iTunes so please can we have it on iPad in HD?

The ipad doesn't have enough RAM, sadly. GSB is a bit of a memory hog, especially with the really big battles. That is the only reason it hasn't already been ported to the ipad.
