Future of the game - Waxing nostalgic

Been wondering where this game is going. Will there be additional chapters? Has there been any thought to possibly rolling back evolution of the hero in chapter one to medieval age? Lengthening research, leveling times. This might spur some increase in war component, returning to conventional land attacks.

Seems strange to me that all of Chapter One takes place in medieval age, yet aerial and nuclear weaponry is available for offense.

I understand the need to expand the platforms to increase player base, but haven't heard anything in a very long time about where the game is going when that is accomplished.

Will Chapter 2 have an additional 150 days and 50 levels? and 3, 4, and 5?

Will there be sequels, that allow import of current hero stats, etc

I'm sure I am not the only player who has wondered these things! :))

We have been focused (and still focused) on making browser/mobile version of the game and it took us more than this year and will take more time in the future too until it is fully polished, thats #1 priority which takes 99% of our time. Chapters are story related and do not relate to ages, in theory you can beat the whole story in any age.

before web/mobile version will be polished until usable state - highly unlikely, I am afraid

Bers ... A year ago in the Upcoming Random Ruins news thread you said, and I quote ...

Yes, we will be working on Secret Library, after releasing this.

And I thought I saw somewhere else that it was being worked on.

However none of us are getting any younger and we really really need to complete Act I in our lifetimes in order to depart happy and not frustrated wondering what we missed out on so please consider giving yourselves a change of focus for just a couple of hours a day in order to work on the final part before going back to your mobile tweaking, your mind will definitely appreciate the short break because "a change is as good as a rest" but nowhere near as much as we will appreciate your hard work when we can finally enter the library.

Ruins took significantly more time and money to complete than expected, I have fired the level designer guy since then because of that. Priorities have changed. Without new players there would be not enough income to support the game running, let alone adding new content, that's why we are fully focused on web/phone version of the game. With those versions we would be able to find new partners who would promote the game to their audience.

Truth is, in this day and age there are less and less players that play this type of games on Windows. Majority of casual gamers are on mobile. Porting the game to mobile is a question of survival.

I'm with Sammy and Centian. It would be great to at least hear about the planned project timeline for the start of the secret library and the plans as to what life span the Hero will have, when there are several chapters to play. This, I would say, is already planned out by you.
I guess most players understand that a developement to reach a broader audience is necessary and I would say that all of the players are waiting patiently. So, some insight from you from time to time into what will come next and what the (at least planned) time frame is, would be really awesome and make waiting a bit easier. Thanks

The timespan will be the same, I never hinted it would change

The Secret Library is the end of a chapter and thus has to be something significant. I don't want to to release something half-baked for the sake of releasing it, therefore it is impossible how much time it would take, especially since we haven't even started the previous large task at hand. I have been hinting our next work in progress, i.e. I have promised it is likely we will release phone version by the end of this year and we did it.
