Ok legal bit out of the way.
Shameless self promotion ahead...
This game is a labour of love with a fantastic development team based in Costa Rica. We created this together based on my hair brained concept of creating an Augmented Reality party game for iOS. This game was created on a tiny budget by 2 devs one artist and me!
It's been an amazing ride with all the highs and lows the ebb and flow of game Dev has to offer.
So ... As part of the pain of creating a fun game in mobile, making any money is near impossible... Sometime you need to make drastic changes!
The update that goes live tomorrow dramatically changes how we try to make money. To stop my early adopters from feeling like they've lost something in the transition I'm making them all 'premium players'. So if you bought a mini game in the currently live build on the Apple Appstore you will have all the benefits of being a subscriber for free.
I must stress you have to buy one of the minigames for this to work, other purchases wont make you a premium player.
The game is currently only local multiplayer over WiFi. However tomorrows update will be full online multiplayer, with private (coded lobbies)
You can see a little more about the game including the amazing video Apple created for one of their featuring slots.

What does it mean to be a 'premium player'?
In tomorrows update regular players will be awarded 3 tickets per day to play in tournaments and can play the daily challenge this is all free. If you want more tickets you can buy them, watch an Ad or become a subscriber.
Becoming a subscriber gives you unlimited tournament tickets, you can play any of mini game challenges and you get NO ADS.
Becoming a premium player is basically becoming a subscriber without paying a subscription!
So if you fancy a bit of fun and want to get free unlimited access to multiplayer tournaments buy a mini game before 3pm tomorrow, install the update - panic, think I've tried to con you, then remember to go into settings (cog on the main menu) and select 'restore purchases' you'll become a premium player.
If for some reason it all goes pete tong... I'll make sure you get sorted. (trust me mobile dev is a nightmare of systems that often bite you on the arse at the worst time!)
I wouldn't post this if I hadn't tested it on myself first though.
PS I did check that it was OK to do this
