Great news, folks. This week, our zen puzzle game ‘Quell Memento+’ is free on iOS! This is a promotion (in partnership with the iOS AppStore) to celebrate the relaunch of the game that was originally released in April 2013.
An important note about the relaunch
Quell Memento+ was originally released in partnership with a third party publisher in April 2013. This partnership has now expired, so ownership of the app reverts back to us. This means the previous app has been removed from the App Store, and is now available under the ‘Fallen Tree Games‘ developer listing.
Will this affect me?
Yes – if you downloaded the game on iOS prior to the relaunch, you can still play it, but your version won’t receive any future updates. In order to avail of future content updates (for example, resolution support when new iPhones/iPads are released), you’ll need to download the ‘new‘ version. Which (ahem) brings us to the bad news…
Will I have to pay for it again?
Yes, unfortunately, so we highly recommend getting it while it’s free.
Will my progress be retained?
No. You’ll be starting the game from scratch.
What about any in-app purchases I made?
Sadly, they will be lost.
That seems unfair.
We agree. This is an unfortunate limitation of the way app transfers are handled within the App Store, when the apps have iCloud Sync implemented. (see the full Apple policy here
). We believe that iCould Sync is an important feature that gamers have come to expect. Unfortunately, it does prevent app transfers, as you can see from the official AppStore development guidelines on this issue:
I bought the game on Android / PS Vita / 3DS. Will I be affected?
No, the relaunch is for iOS only.
I’ve never heard of Quell Memento. Should I buy it?
Absolutely! It’s the third part of our Quell series (Quell
and Quell Reflect
were the prequels). It took the two of us a year to make, we are really proud of it, and the critics loved it. Check out the game-play video
Finally, we sincerely apologise to customers who purchased the game within the last two years, only to find that they won’t receive further updates without an additional purchase. Hopefully you enjoyed the game enough to consider buying it a second time (for which we truly appreciate the support), or grabbing it now while it’s free.
Thanks for your understanding!
Joe and Lewis.
