Es freut uns, dass Du Interesse an einer iOS-Version von Oil & Soil hast. Aktuell sind wir dabei, eine PC-Version für Steam zu entwickeln. Wir sind erstmal auf die PC-Plattform (später macOS) fokussiert und planen erst danach für iOS+Android weiterzuentwickeln.

Viele Grüße,

Hi glad to hear one of my favorite Amiga games is coming to ios. I miss playing it. Could i get access to the Beta? Also one of the bugs i remember from the original game was if you accumulated too much wealth the game crashed. Any word if this bug is still present?

Hi @Fugazi, thanks for your offer to alpha test Oil & Soil! You are now a member of our alpha tester community. I’m very curious if you can handle it to accumulate too much wealth to crash our game. Hopefully we could fix the bug in our remake of Oil Imperium :slight_smile:

I will try to break it. I am a software tester in my day job :smile:

But the way got wealthy back in the day was to take paper and have the grid written out.
Map each grid with the results of exploration. Do one at a time reloading after the result.

So i kinda knew where all the sweet spots were.
