Hey everyone, Reilly & Joe here!
Howdy! Sorry, it’s been such a long time between posts, we’re both still doing this whole game dev thing in our spare time and it makes things complicated! We’ve had a lot of fans asking if we could update Warbits to support the newer iPhone X screen sizes, will it ever come to Android, etc. So we figured it’s time to fry up some of these questions and serve ’em up right here.
First, the not so great news. The Warbits we all know and love was released April 13th, 2016. That makes it a little over 5 years old. Ready for Kindergarten! Unfortunately, Warbits was developed using a now defunct game engine and major updates stopped before our beloved iPhone notch made an appearance. But wait!
Warbits fans are the absolute best and we love the game just as much. So what can we do about that?
We’ve decided to rebuild the game from the ground up to support more screen sizes, cross platform play, community driven content, profile progression, and a whole slew of quality of life improvements. The final form this new iteration of Warbits will take is still up for discussion, but we are slowly but steadily marching towards the finish line. Check us out on our Official Risky Lab Discord for a sneak peek!
So glad to hear this! I still love playing WarBits after hundreds of hours sunk into it. Really looking forward to the next iteration!
Will this be a whole new game, and therefore purchase, or a free update?
This will be a new game.
Hi I love Warbits, so happy to hear this! How do I view the sneak peak on discord?
Just click the link in the blog post!
I’m really excited about the new game. I’ve probably played through entire campaign about 6 times on my iPad Mini 2. Might need to get a new iPad to play this game when it comes out.
