Well, not to be critical, but after having watched the PC version get pushed back repeatedly, I don't have much faith in anything that's been said anymore. I decided to check out the page that gives info on the iPad version, and it seems weird that people who died in the second installment are alive at some point in the iPad version, though that could be to bring new people up to speed or something like that. I have no intention of buying an iPad to find out, and even if I do buy an iPad at some point in the future, I will NEVER play any of their games on it, no matter how bad I want to keep playing them. I refuse to reward them for kicking PC players aside without so much as an explanation. That is just rude of them, and the sad part is that they don't seem to care that PC players are ticked off. It's simply a matter of money. Of course, if the iPad well runs dry, you can count on the fact that they will come running back to the PC players with a new installment, though, by then, many of their fans will have moved on to companies that appear to care about the fans of their gamesjust like I thought Awem once did. Image

The real kicker for me is that according to their Facebook page, they announced the release of a fifth installment of the iPad version back in June. So, while we PC players still sit here waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and, well, you get the idea, they continue to crank out more installments of the iPad version. Awem originally said that making the iPad version ahead of the 3rd PC installment would make it so much quicker and easier to produce the 3rd PC installment, but it looks more like they have done exactly what many of us feared, which is drop their plans for a new PC installment altogether. The fact that they stopped posting to this forum a long time ago is in keeping with this.

I absolutely hate it when a company cuts their teeth on one platform and then abandons that fan base for a new, more lucrative platform. If not for the PC players, who knows how the iPad version would be doing right now. Of course, they still expect us to keep buying whatever products they decide to introduce for the PC, knowing full well that it will likely just be another springboard to build up interest in the game so they can shift it over to the iPad, just as they have done with some of their other popular PC games. I used to think that Awem was so different and better than all of the other gaming companies, but, sadly, they are showing themselves to be the same or worse. At least with some of the other companies, they are happy to get revenue from both sources rather than alienate one over the other like Awem is doing.

The decent thing to do would be to make one simple post saying that there will be no further PC installments of this game, but, of course, they aren't about to do that just in case in-game purchases of the iPad version drastically fall off, which frequently happens with the 'so-called' free-to-play games. People get sick and tired of being nickeled and dimed to death and they eventually quit playing. I know because I speak from experience. Oh well, that's just the way it goes these days. Companies don't care about their customers, just their wallets. I used to think that only the big companies could afford to think that way but it looks like the little companies can too, for a while at least. This flat out sucks! Image Image

I did a search on the internet this morning....the game is out there....just not on Awem! It's been out since Feb!

But, how is that possible? Why would another site have AWEM's game when they don't have it themselves? That's a lot of lost revenue, not to mention the fact that so many of us have been waiting for what seems like forever for the game to come out. Now I'm even more bummed with AWEM than before. I desperately need to get to bed, as I have to get up very, very early in the morning for work, but I will do a search right now to see if I can find the site that has it. Thanks for the heads up. Image

Edit: I just did a search, and I can't find a site with TIC3 available for sale. I did find a game with the same title, but it wasn't this game. I will try looking again tomorrow evening after I get home for work, assuming I'm not too exhausted. I want TIC3!!Image By the way, the game you saw was definitely The island castaway 3: The Crux of the Island, wasn't it? I know that they put out the iPad version of this game, though I don't know what they named it. I'm not doubting you. I just want to be sure it's the same game. When I searched, I came across a lot of sites that said they had #3, but it was just a trick to get you to go to their site. Websites do this all the time and it makes me so mad. grrrr


Sorry about not coming back here sooner. The new games is called 'The Island Castaway: Lost World' from G5 Entertainment (which apparently Awem is a part of ?? ). It is a poor excuse of a game...in-app purchases are insane! You collect pearls only to find that they are damn near worthless. You need emeralds to purchase almost everything, and those cost real money! The game play is still fun, but you get so ticked off by their greed to force you to by emeralds, that it really takes the fun out of the game. It is free to download, tho.
