    We weren't going to do much teasing, but we were really curious about first impressions.

    Uplift is a steampunk flavoured, fantasy themed game for both Android and iOS. The game follows the adventures of professor Flugen, renowned zeppelin specialist, his nephew Zack and his pet robot. Desperate to help their home city, one of the many floating cities of their world, the three embark on a quest to find the precious Heltrogen gas, hidden deep within the savage Kubwa mountains.

    Expected: Q1 2012

    Since half our team is from the US and we needed a little extra to cover licensing fees, would using Kickstarter be a good idea?

    I'm not completely sure I'm clear on the game mechanics, per se. I'm afraid the video didn't help me out.

    As a huge fan of ZEPPLIN on the C64, I'm good at looking at any game with that sort of theme.

    The navigation will be done by dragging (+ 1 or 2 additional actions, at key moments). The zeppelin itself has physical variables such as gravity, wind speed + progressive acceleration. The experience would be somewhat similar to the C64 game. However, several levels relly on you modifying the environment in order to make your blimp advance. Also, you will have to trick your enemies most of the time, because shooting will rarely be an option

    For those of you who reported problems on Galaxy S and Nexus S, we're proud to announce the latest update fixes them (although the loading time might still be a little high).

    We feel we finally addressed the PowerVR problem (Galaxy & Nexus S and the Kindle Fire series). The version which has been recently uploaded to the Google Play store should work on these devices:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.Starchaser.Uplift

    If you've recently installed the game and encountered the aforementioned problems, make sure you've cleaned the cache first. The FPS might encounter some drop downs,
    but that shall be fixed once the new version of Unity is on the market.

    Also, Uplift has been accepted and is now live and working on the Amazon AppStore too:

    As you know, a while back we released a puzzle platformer game called Uplift. While the game had a warm welcome at the time and passed its initial 10 000 downloads mark, it did have small issues.

    Almost a year in development, we
