Hello,
Please remember my comments as they won't be retold/have been deleted off my Braille display I used to take notes. Also, if this game were to be more like a survival thing in the future, I would think you could have people gathering things for building a ship/having a crew sailing you to the different islands ... at least for the first time. Then, you could actually see what it's like to live on a boat, for transportation which could take some time. The volcano's actually a mountain, probably built up from under the sea--study geology for this--so lots of things can happen here/Earthquakes and psunamis and all that. I think the tutorial actually said something about a ship, but don't know for sure. One big thing I'm wondering is, if I have the testflight version now but want to keep it, will I still be able to get diamonds--they're not currently present/I think they should be. Also, if I buy the game, will I have to start from scratch? For those of you not using the gyroscope, I can understand this. but if you play as I do, not really using the compass but your own O&M skills--only use compass when you can't find the items yourself--you'll understand how important learning to use the scope can be/that "scope" is your own body at times of training in O&M, so ... I could actually see this as a learning thing for those without disabilities, learning what a lahar/mud slide is--two pretty different things, and so on. you could also use ignius and metamorphic rocks from the Earth to barter/trade with for more stuff. I could see it becoming its own little game world, complete with some zombies from Feer as well during Halloween.

I know you want to share most of the news in public, but here you are writing in the AppleVis Community, what i feel while reading it, belongs more to an email discussion.

I'm also really excited for this game. Keep doing the good work!

Submitted by ming on Monday, March 22, 2021

I heard some of the rumers said that it will be released sometime today? am I right?

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Monday, March 22, 2021

No, I thought it was tomorrow, if the beta went well. one more day, just wait.

Submitted by ming on Tuesday, March 23, 2021

ok.
can't wait though

Submitted by kool_turk on Tuesday, March 23, 2021

They said March, so technically they could release it on the 31st and it would still count.

If I were them, that's probably what I would do, give them enough time to squash any remaining bugs.

Submitted by ming on Tuesday, March 23, 2021

I hope that game will keep updating and release new thing like the other mainstream games.

Submitted by pot head23 on Tuesday, March 23, 2021

I am definitely looking forward to this game whenever it is released.

Submitted by Firefly on Tuesday, March 23, 2021

I agree. I can’t wait either. This sounds like it is going to be such an amazing game! I’ve gotten to the point now, where when I wake up in the morning one of the first things I do is check the forms to see if they’ve released it yet.

Submitted by DMNagel on Tuesday, March 23, 2021

Feer didn't exactly strike my fancy, but this one definitely sounds like well... a treasure.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Wednesday, March 24, 2021

Lol. Is this going to be a bit like knight manager where I can just destroy your island once I get powerful, or is this going to be like animal crossing, where, Well, I dunno as I've not played the game yet. I did read the thing but I'm still a bit confused. I guess we'll see once this thing is out.

Happywednesday to all.

Submitted by Firefly on Wednesday, March 24, 2021

I just listened. And now I’m more excited than ever.

Submitted by David Standen on Wednesday, March 24, 2021

I also listened to the sneak peak of this game and I am more excited than ever. I'll definitely be picking this game up when it's released.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Thursday, March 25, 2021

I recognize the sound of the factory in feer. Also, the valcano island, kind of sounds meh to me. I've heard better in mainstream games.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Thursday, March 25, 2021

Well, according to ther twitter, they are having trouble releasing it to the apple app store, so I guess we'll see what happens. it will happen, but only when apple says it will happen, I guess.

Submitted by Firefly on Thursday, March 25, 2021

I realize that Apple may have standards that are a little bit strict, but I can’t imagine why they are holding up an audio game from being released. I really have half a mind to write to Apple and ask them why they are doing this. So without knowing all the facts involved. I won’t.

Submitted by ming on Friday, March 26, 2021

I think the developer is monitoring this post.
so, it better wait for their reply.

Submitted by ming on Friday, March 26, 2021

their last post here is something about have a little thing to be fixed.\and hopefully today or tomorrow.
we can see something new.
I hope this weekend is a good one.

If not today, then maybe next week. I don't think apple release stuff over weekends. Let's see what's not to see lol.

Submitted by ming on Friday, March 26, 2021

I remember the game, AudioWizard
is releasing over the weekend.

maybe I am wrong anyway...

1. we have to finish the game, as said. so everything came out ouf betatesting must be done. before that we do not release.
2. Apple is not blocking or refusing anything, on the contrary, they have considered Sonar Island to be featured on the AppStore. That means additional work for us.
3. we are flattered by your inpatience to play this game, but let us complete the game, you all don't want to have fragments of a game.
4. we definitely inform you all, when our work is done.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Friday, March 26, 2021

Wow! apple wants to feature the game on the app store? that's an honor! I wish feer would have gotten featured, that game is good too. Congratulations.

Submitted by mentalhome.eu on Friday, March 26, 2021

and yes, Sonar Islands is one of the few audiogames, considered featuring on AppStore. Let's make this a breakthrough for all audiogames. It's a chance for all of us, players and developers, to shine light on it and get the cited on our side of the table.

Submitted by DrummerGuy on Friday, March 26, 2021

It is definitely great to hear that Apple wants to feature your game on the App Store. Just like you said, hopefully this will be a breakthrough for all audio games from here on.
I, for one, am very excited and waiting eagerly for the game to be released. However, we all must be patient and avoid speculations that will only contribute to impatience to rain down on all of us.
I know that sonar island will be an awesome game and it is best to wait for it to be completed before it is launched.
Thank you for creating this fabulous game.

Submitted by David Standen on Friday, March 26, 2021

Congratulations from me as well. You must be feeling quite honoured for Apple to want your game among the featured apps in the app store. In the meantime, let us all be patient. The release will happen when it happens.

Submitted by Teresa on Sunday, March 28, 2021

Can't wait to move to an island and steal, er, trade treasure with other folks. Ok, steal. LOL Sounds like a rich sound environment, which I really like in games.

Hello,
If you do that, I guess she's likely stick several snakes in her temple and several lions in her jungle ... just to distract you from your goal. On completing the beta test--it closed down for me today--I'm really excited to see if my ideas will have taken flight and entered the game. I really wish Feer would work on their stereo system--when in the right side of the playing field. however, that's not for here to describe

Submitted by ming on Tuesday, March 30, 2021

just a little bit of wondering without spoiler
does it have any battling between each player in the game.
or just collecting treasure?

Submitted by kool_turk on Tuesday, March 30, 2021

I am curious, if apple are going to feature this on the featured list, how could you possibly convince a sighted person to pick this one up and actually stick with it.

My nephew, who is fully sighted was able to play audio archery when it was available, but got completely lost when he tried to play a blind legend.

Feer is probably playable, since there's only three lanes to choose from, and limited visuals.

How much visuals does Sonar Islands have?

The concept is this; you build up your island with various itecms including treasures to collect. Players can then attack your island. you have to go on other players islands, get as much treasure as you can, and bring it home. it good game.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Wednesday, March 31, 2021

I'll say this much. my brother out did me on Simon which was an audio game I had on iOs. It was this thing with gestures. and he played with out looking at the screen. This was almost 10 years ago. I think though some sighted people want to learn. My family think it's quite cool when I play. they've tried to play and after a while they understand.
