    iOS 7.0.3

    2013 - 11.02

    We’ve had a number of bug reports from people having crashes in Master Thief in iOS 7.0.3 when accessing the Play menu. We’re working on a fix now and will get an update out as soon as we can.

    If you’re experiencing a different issue or have the problem and are not using iOS 7.0.3 please head over to the support section and let us know!

    And we have a winner!

    Hyper Magazine reviews Master Thief!

    2013 - 08.20

    We were pretty stoked after AVCon when a reviewer told us to look out for a Master Thief review in the upcoming August edition of Hyper Magazine.

    Check it out! :D mthyperreview

    A short break

    2013 - 08.11

    We’ve taken a bit of a break since releasing the 1.5 update for Master Thief, but we’re getting back into it now.

    Our current focus is getting making the Ouya version of the game release worthy. The gameplay itself is good to go, as anyone who saw us or played the game at AVCon will already know – our Ouya console was rockin’ the game all weekend. :-) Some bits of the UI and menu need some updates to suit, though, and we’ve got some polishing and testing and a few known gamepad issues to work out with the menu.

    Also, Gametraders have interviewed us for their Live magazine again, so you should go check that out here: http://www.gametraders.com.au/images/magazine/magazine.pdf

    Our biggest level yet!

    2013 - 07.22


    People asked for bigger and longer levels, and we’re happy to oblige. The upcoming 1.5 update for Master Thief has our biggest and longest level yet, so be sure to check it out!

    This one’s for the booster pack, but we also plan on including larger levels for the base game in future updates.

    Thanks for the bug reports!

    2013 - 07.22

    I really want to thank a couple of Master Thief players who took the time to send us bug reports over the last week. You each brought different and really important bugs to our attention, and also provided the extra info we needed to track them down easily. If you’re reading this, you know who you are!

    One of the two is already fixed, and an update to address the other is being submitted for both iOS and Google Play as I type.

    Great Indie Games Room last weekend

    2013 - 07.22

    Sorry for the late post, but I just wanted to say (again) how great the Indie Games Room was last weekend. We had the most developers ever and the best games so far.

    Rock on Adelaide!
