I can hardly wait, best game I played so far has been GOF2. So I look foward to playing Manticore. Just want to thank you for all the hard work you do.

Cheers for the nice words, Detainer! It's really great to hear that so many long-time GOF fans like what they see... we know that the expectations are quite high, but we believe that we've got a kick-ass title in the making and we can't wait for you guys to play it! :)

Just so I'm clear, this is an Apple TV-only game? Not available for iPad or iPhone?

The said in their comment that it would be for all iPads and iphones

It says it will be for iphone as well!

Galaxy on Fire 3 - Manticore will be released for mobile devices, while Manticore Rising will be an Apple TV exclusive.

That's disappointing,in my opinion, their are way more smartphone users than Apple TV. In general it's more appealing to smartphone users. I have no intention to buying a Apple TV as it serves no useful purpose to me. So That's quite a bummer

Uh... I think its already pretty clear that gof:3 manticore will be in the app store for ipads and iphones, and "GOF: Manticore Rising" will be an Apple TV exclusive. They are not alike. Mind reading the blog thoroughly before commenting?

It's just for Apple TV for now. They are releasing it on iOS two in summer of 2016

This is going to be epic >_<

how long will it be an exclusiv title for the apple tv ? will it be availabe for iphone later ?

Right now, there are no plans to bring the prequel Manticore Rising to mobile, too. It is planned as an Apple TV exclusive and it will give people the chance to pass the time until Galaxy on Fire 3 - Manticore is being released on smartphones and tablets. For the latter, we're aiming at a release date in 2016.

Since it will be released in all Apple products, does it mean that it is ONLY for Apple devices or will it also be in Android devices?

I've been a long term me fan of GOF, but I will soon be making the switch to android and would like to know, will it only be for iPhone? For now I see it is only just IOS and Apple TV, but will Manticore be on android?

OMG! I can't wait! This will be surreal

this is gonna be great! GOF2 has been the best iOS game that I've played, I'm excited to dive into the next one XD

Great to hear that you like what you've seen so far... and we still got a lot of cool stuff up our sleeves. GOF3 will be pretty kick-ass! :)

What about an android realease

will we get some nice launch/landing sequences ?

I tried two different email accounts. I'm supposed to receive a confirmation for my registration with the closed beta.. But I'm not getting that email... Not in spam ..not I'm promotions.. Primary or social folders.

Sorry to hear that, Lindsey. Have you created a forum or user area account before you signed up for the closed beta? If so, that could be the reason for the issues. But we're at it and you'll hopefully receive your confirmation mail ASAP. If you have not signed up for a forum or user area account before, please get in touch with our support team over at support.dsfishlabs.com. They'll have to look into your case & will hopefully come up with a quick solution.

I have been waiting for this for like how long! This will be so cool. Hope it arrives in the Appple AppStore fast!(preferably free) GOF2 was the coolest game I've ever played - I have already played it 5 times! Best of luck to the developers.

>Will it be free? >Will there be any addons? >Is having seen the prequel entirely necessary to understand the main story? >When in 2016 is the planned release? Thanks!

What exactly is the "closed" beta? Who will get opportunity to test it? I have signed up, any chance of my getting an opportunity?

Please charge us 5€ or so. And make it preferable free of advertisments or social harvesting on our photos etc...

how many ships has gof3 got

I've been playing gof2 for so long, I loved how the game was free but when I saw the expansions I instantly bought them all and I had an absolute blast, hopefully gof3 will get to be free with in app purchases in it, I totally wouldn't mind and hope it's a thing, and if it is, if spend all I got for the in app purchases, thank you guys for making the best space combat game for the mobile platform, I really enjoyed both gof and gof2, now I'm super excited for gof 3

I would like it better too if it was free and had in app purchases. I'd prefer to download and play the main story before making any purchases.

Nearly every new moblie game is unplayable because of this. Example: Real Racing 3, Clash of Clans, Clash Royal, Candy Crush Saga, ....... PLEASE sell the game for 4-6€ und sell only cosmetic things via in-app purchases. If u look for a good example see Destiny. DLCs (with a good cost-gameplay-ratio) are very good too. (Like in GoF2)
