Today we released a big update for our time traveling arcade twitchy iOS game The Way Home.
It is a free game with various in app purchases, including one that says Full Unlock. It gives you infinite lives, taking you from free to play to premium game and it unlocks all stories (including hardcore stories).
Some players who were testing out the game came back and said that there’s a bug, that the full unlock does not activate all the levels. And that is correct. But it’s not a bug.
The Way Home is an episodic adventure. The levels are divided into stories. Skipping a level and not playing consecutively would ruin the story. We don’t want that!
The Full Unlock gives you access to the first level in every story so you can choose which one you play first. But whether you want to read the stories or not, you will have to go through each level in order to discover it.
Aaaand no, right now there is (almost) no amount of money that would make us agree to unlock all the levels and ruin that experience.
That Full Unlock IAP is powerful enough as it is. Show me how many games give you an IAP that removes the energy/life system.
The IAP however will go up in price as we add more content. So if you’ve already bought it, that is all you’ll ever pay in this game as far as content is concerned.
