Version 3.0 update

Hello Castaway players,

A few months ago we announced Castaway Paradise 3.0 a complete overhaul of the game's controls, user interface and presentation. We estimated it would be live at the end of 2016, we failed to deliver on that estimation. Here is why.

The reason we are developing Castaway Paradise version 3.0 is to make the game enjoyable for a lot of players. Some users have been complaining about control issues and the sometimes touch screen-esque nature of the interface.

Version 3.0 fixes this by making the controls work with standard Xbox-layout controllers. Instead of the player following your mouse they will now be directly controlled by the analogue stick. A bigger change has happened to the user interface. It's been completely rewritten and redesigned. With version 3.0 you can comfortably play the game on a touch screen, with a controller or with a mouse and keyboard.

These changes weren't just made for you steam players. Version 3.0 will mean Castaway Paradise will be a console game as well. A Xbox One and PS4 version are on their way.

The reason for the delay of version 3.0 is that we want to unify the experience on all platforms. This is taking longer than we expected, but will have massive benefits to you steam users. As version 3.0 will be a multi platform release you can expect a much more polished experience than before. Instead of making a separate console release and abandoning the steam version we choose to make version 3.0.

Castaway Paradise version 3.0 is still in development. It will be awesome.
