We will be speaking. And listening. And partying.

The Supermono gang will be in San Francisco next week for GDC. If you’re around, check out Dave Ferner’s talk Less Reality, More Neon: Designing Forever Drive. Or just drop by and say hi!

Morning everyone! Check the App Store for a shiny new Forever Drive v1.22 update, which should fix (amongst other things) some inconsistencies with timing/ranking on the weekly challenge. Let us know how it goes for you!

Quick update on the last news item – we’ve now fixed the bug where the runners-up didn’t get their prizes, and awarded the missing prizes. Guys, you should have got your credits now, well done for being awesome at our game! If you haven’t, let us know on the forums please! Thanks :-)

Hi guys, big news this week is the massive new Forever Drive update, with an entirely new game mode, challenge mode! We’re super excited about this! A massive thanks to everyone who entered the first challenge! And congratulations to the winners!

This is a pretty massive update, and there’s been a couple of issues with the first challenge, which should be sorted pretty soon!

Download Corrupted issue
Quite a few users reported problems downloading the 1.2 update from the iTunes store – this one was actually an Apple issue, relating to file corruption on their servers, and unfortunately quite a few games have suffered from it (check out the excellent Bike Baron, for example). We’re still waiting for word back from them on that, but hopefully the new update will refresh the cache – seemed to work for Bike Baron, so fingers crossed.

Runner-Up Prizes
Well done to the winners of challenge mode! Unfortunately a small bug means, although the top 4 should have got their massive prizes, the runners-up didn’t get their 50 credit prizes – we’ve already fixed that and submitted the update – just waiting for approval from Apple on that. We do have a list of the previous winners, and hopefully we will be able to get you your winnings. Can’t promise anything right now but we are working on it!

Dirty Rotten Cheaters
It’s come to our attention that a couple of people were cheating in this challenge. Apologies to everyone else, but these things do sometimes happen with online games, even massive ones! We have, however, removed the cheaters, it’s actually pretty obvious when somebody’s cheating since everyone else can see their replays! We’ve fixed the exploit they were using, if you do see someone else cheating give us a shout at mail[at]supermono-studios.com.

Hopefully these initial problems will be sorted really soon – all part of making the game better! In the meantime, thanks for your patience, and keep checking back for updates – they’re coming through as soon as Apple approves them, so very soon we hope!
