A new update just went out for Pirates and Traders & Pirates and Traders: Gold. Nothing dramatic, really – although it took some time – but an Android SDK update was required in order to keep the game(s) alive on Google Play. It should now be good for another few years, if people still want to play it.
Work on Pirates and Traders 2 is progressing, albeit slowly. I will be taking some extra “vacation” this December (due to all the extra work I had during autumn) and most of the Christmas presents are done, so I expect to have a lot more time than usual to work with this between now and New Year. So work will be moving ahead a bit faster for a while now, and I’m hoping I’ll be able to use the time effectively to work on the game in between everything else. Wish me luck.
