Dedicated game site will be up and running very soon. Until then, you can drop us a note of here in comments or right in the game. Moreover, visit the unofficial messaging board and the chat room we’ve setup for such an occasion.
Don’t forget to vote up the game in the AppStore and stay tuned — more sweet stuff to come!
We did it! Underworld was sent to the AppStore. Let’s hope the wait won’t be so long this time.
So, what’s up with SweetDeal?
First — many of you are wondering about this — the game will still be free to play. Only this time you will be able to download paid extensions containing Underworld Points.
With UW points, you can pull some strings, like to gain full police protection for some period, to postpone your loan shark pay off or even to get a full refund for your equipment upgrades to rearrange them. Of course, more boosts are coming soon.
Second, we’ve added a cop alert indicator to the market screen. Now you can always see your actual chances to come through. Decide for yourself — take a chance or upgrade.
Next, we’ve fixed Cream of the Crop. See how powerful you are comparing to other players in different areas.
Finally, for those who had a chance to enjoy Underworld in beta phase, how do you continue playing the game? Just install the game from the AppStore when it comes live and it will automatically load your existing character. Your rank, cash and stock — everything will survive.
As a token of our appreciation for your hard work, we are offering you the Underworld veterans 15 UW points, as a welcome gift to the SweetDeal.
We have good news for all fans of the game: thanks to all the help from the jailbroken beta-testing community, we are now ready for the release of the game!
On the 8th of April we are submitting Underworld: SweetDeal to the AppStore. Let’s hope this time approval goes smoothly.
For those who aren’t familiar with the whole thing, what’s Underworld? It’s the unique location based massively multiplayer online game simulating trade on the global black market. Using GPS inside your iPhone / iPod Touch you discover a parallel world of dirty trade, cruel rivals and merciless loan sharks. Your job is to find good deals everywhere you travel in your real life and earn big buck by moving merchandise around.
Now to the less exciting part. Despite what we have said before, the news kicked in that we have to shut down our beta version for jailbroken devices. So be it. After all, Underworld is MMO — more players means more fun, right? Beta accounts will be moved to the SweetDeal, where you can continue your struggle to the Cream of the Crop.
