Derp Studios release 2.0 update to Warhammer 40,000: Tactical Objectives App.
Studio with former Train2Game students release major update to its Games Workshop licenced app.
Our friends at Derp Studios are releasing a major update to its Warhammer 40,000 tactical objectives app. Building on its already successful first release and taking part in the wider Games Workshop ‘Digital Assault’ and Warhammer Fest, which take place this weekend.
The update includes New Decks for the Tau Empire, Farsight Enclaves, Cadia, Raven Guard and Chaos Daemons. The update also includes some major new features: Users now have the ability to draw a card without advancing the turn counter, users may now manually add and subtract victory points from their total score and all purchased tactical objective cards are now downloaded from a server which has reduced the core app size significantly.
The latest update went live on Monday 9th May 2016 on both the Apple and Google Play app stores. To promote the release of the 2.0 update Derp are participating in Games Workshops’ “Digital Assault” on the Apple App store on 12th-19th May 2016. The Warhammer 40,000: Tactical Objectives App AND all other Games Workshop Products are 50% off (including in app purchases).
The event coincides and celebrates Warhammer Fest, in which Derp Studios will be attending at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, UK on the 14th and 15th May.
Chris Ledger, Derp Studios: ‘We’re delighted to launch 2.0. It’s been a long time coming, the community suggested some things and Games Workshop had released some new decks as well which we wanted to ship.’
‘The release of the original app was received really well. I know it can do a lot better though. Raising awareness of the app is the most challenging part. The app’s been doing fine, people are enjoying the convenience of it and should do even more with the latest update.’
‘It’s a nice feeling when people enjoy something you’ve designed. It’s nice in general to see a project come to fruition, especially a project that is well received. The UK, USA and Canada are the ones mostly buying it. We’ve had the odd download from the Far East which is pretty exciting. Even though Games Workshop is a UK company, their franchises are known worldwide.’
‘Most people either play at home or at their local gaming club or Games Workshop store. However we’ve been asked whether the app will be compatible for tournaments (which are extremely popular in the USA).’
‘Games Workshop have been fab, they’re very supportive and help out wherever they possibly can. Massive shout out to the licensing team, they’re the ones working with developers and publishers of all sizes.’
‘The previous version took up a lot of storage space on device. We’ve managed to fix that so IAP’s are purchased and then downloaded as opposed to them all being on the app behind a paywall. So we’ve resolved that issue.’
