It doesn't show up until you click on See All. I had to do a double-take there, too. Direct link: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id393977970?mt=8

And of course it shows up normally now :P

Too bad I don't have $3 to spare at the moment...

Hey, Cyan, if you haven't already, you might want to check out the thread about Stoneship going on over on TouchArcade: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=68282

Edit: Seems they've seen it 'cause they've made a great post over there: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthrea ... 282&page=3

I grabbed it last night.

First impression: there isn't much puzzle in this casual-puzzle-strategy game. I've played six or seven levels, and they're pretty same-ish. Maybe more stuff shows up later? If so, maybe it should show up earlier.

I'd like to see the sort of stuff that would allow some tactical decisions. Say, you find a magic item on an island, that you have to decide where to deploy. "Explore a 3x3 block", "explore one entire island", "explore in a straight line until you hit land", that sort of thing. Drop a storm where you think the pirate ship will sail. Positional advantages if you position them right.

I think the "puzzle" tag is a loose fit. Partly because that's where people tend to look for Cyan games, and partly because securing the best possible scores involves replaying a level to figure out where you can shave a turn off here, connect a Port faster there, etc.

That being said, we're always on the look out for more things to add to this game, and we've got some interesting ideas planned.

I'm liking the concept and style of this game a lot. Personally, I'd like a mechanic or two to add strategy (e.g. the suggestion two posts previous to mine) to the first time play through of a level.

Also, it seems that I'm not always given points at the end of the level for defeating the sea monster. I'm guessing this is a bug.

I look forward to upcoming interesting things. :)

(And I am still playing the game -- I haven't even found a second first mate yet.)

Stoneship is awesome! But i'd love to see an option to zoom out on the map.. :) I'd really like to see that in a future update!
But seriously, it is very addicting.. I played non stop the last couple of hours :P

Cyan: congratulations with your new game!
Good to see you're up and running and still creating great stuff!

(Unfortunately I'm not in the posession of iOS, but maybe that'll come...)

My younger brother has gotten much further I have. I have merely completed the tutorials. Once I've played a bit more, I'll be sure to leave a review on iTunes. Great game! I can't wait to see what will come in the updates.

And so it begins again... Myst made me buy a CD ROM drive, and now all the iMyst apps are telling me to buy an iPod Touch.

Sigh.

Fantastic work, you guys!

Congratulations on your new game Cyan. I hope it takes off and brings in lots of treasure for you. I'd like to say I bought it but since I don't own an iPod and probably never will......

Maybe sometime in the future you could possibly think of porting the game to the computer? I really dig casual gaming - I'm a member of Big Fish Games - and would really like to have a chance to try Stoneship. By the by - if Big Fish can offer Syberia 1 and 2 to their customers why couldn't they offer Myst 1 through 5?

Congratulations Cyan with Stoneship:)
Managed yesterday to get I-pod and computer talking to each other again and download Stoneship. Easy to start but hard to stop playing :lol:

ack, I-pod and computer heve broken up again. Wish I knew for sure what I did yesterday that worked.

It may have only been released for more than just a week but Stoneship is the 130th top grossing app. Lets hope it keeps climbing up the charts and congratulations Cyan on the success with Stoneship, lets hope this is a beginning of a good period for you.
