ARMED! For Windows 8 Released

We're very happy to announce that the preview release of ARMED! for Windows 8 powered PCs, laptops, and tablets is now available from the Windows Store!

This is a free preview build and will see several updates before Windows 8 is released to manufacturing later this year. Please give it a try and submit feedback to our support page. Note that while currently you cannot play between Windows 8 and Windows Phone users, the upcoming 1.5 release for WP7 will allow full cross-platform play for the first time.

On a technical note the game code is largely the same between the Windows Phone 7, the new Windows 8 release, and the upcoming iOS release. This is achieved by using MonoGame, a cross platform implementation of Microsoft XNA which we have helped port to Windows 8 Metro. MonoGame is used by many games including Bastion for Linux, MacOS, and Chrome Native Client and Infinite Flight for iOS.

Finally we're going to be live on the Metro Developer Show tomorrow Friday the 6th at 3pm CST talking about ARMED! for Windows Phone 7 and Windows 8 Metro. Come and listen to the live broadcast, chat with other listeners, and ask questions about ARMED!

Thanks for playing ARMED!

I have been playing this game since it came out on WP7. But now that I can play it on Windows 8 is awesome.

What happened to the new combat venues that were supposed to be released with version 1.5?
