Omerta!

Q&A:

Question: Yeah, all nice this, but better just make sure that your game is bug free...
Answer: We have a team of developers to make sure that our game has the least amount of bugs possible. Unfortunately no site can be bugfree all the time but we do our best to fix these bugs as quick and good as possible. We actually need new developers so we can be sure we can continue to fix bugs while developing this new platform.

Question: Why spend all this time doing this instead of fixing bugs
Answer: This is in no way eating in our available dev time, they are still working on fixing bugs every single day, like they are and have been doing.

Question: You keep saying you solve bugs but I dont believe it...
Answer: Since 2005 the moment our current bugtrack tool came online there have been 2535 tickets resolved, that averages 281 a year and 24 a month on average. We do our best to keep this game nice and smooth.

Question: I want X back before I even want to help you
Answer: Even tho we understand that you miss a particular function it is not always possible to bring something back. Maybe it didn't work out, or had too many bugs or there is another reason to have removed this function from Omerta. This is in no way related to developing a tablet based version of Omerta.

Question: Why new developers? Why can't you just make this yourself.
Answer: We have had several attempts in the past which unfortunately did not work out for various reasons. You can read more about this here: https://www.facebook.com/notes/omerta-mobile/day-nine-important-questions/301968099952592

Question: That is an insane amount of money you need... come on!
Answer: Unfortunately these insane amounts of money is indeed what it costs to develop a new tablet based game, we want to create this and do it good. For this we need to have a new development team that can create this and that is why we are doing this.

Question: Why raise money to do this at all?
Answer: We already have an offer of matched-funding from the UK govt. The more we raise, the more we get - and we can do some other things like bring in better full time personnel and make a proper Facebook edition of Omerta (which would need 2 more devs and more planning time to do it right, plus at least one experienced artist).

Question: Why dont you guys just make a paid app so the people that want it can buy it from an app store.
Answer: What we are doing now is meant to actually create the app in the first place. It would also cut in our 'free to play' ethos if we would make people pay to play Omerta. We want everybody to be able to play this even without being forced to pay for it.

Question: Is this mobile app a completely different game or a tablet/phone version of the current game?
Answer: It will be a real tablet version of our game and it will be interactive. It wont be a 'open an internetpage in an app' app.

Question: Is this a donation or an investment?
Answer: Currently we are mostly working on raising awareness, what rewards there will be will be clear when the project is on indigogo or kickstarter. You can assume that just like any other project there, there will be various options to choose from.

Question: How long will it take to create this app?
Answer: It will be done as soon as possible once we have our finances together. We will have a dedicated team working full time on this app.

Question: How will you keep this app save from for example Bluestacks etc.
Answer: Our game is serverbased, everything that happens will be on our servers and because of it issues like this are less likely to take place, you can see the app as a kind of skin (but more advanced).

Question: My reply is deleted from this newspost, why?
Answer: We are trying to keep it as clean and friendly as possible, issues and questions raised will be (or have already been) answered in this Q&A. It is nothing personal and please dont feel offended.

Question: So what is it you actually want me to do now?!
Answer: At the moment we are just working on raising awareness, we want to let as many people know as possible that we are working on this. Even just a like on the facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/omertamobile) will help us.

We also hope you would want to help us by following the steps as listed here:

I don't use my Iphone to play text games. I play Streetfighter and Madden and hunt down selfies on my phone.

I'm pretty old skool and not with the times, I'm a psycho son of a beatch. Meaning I play this game in 2014 on my laptop while I do my HW.
So with that said, can you fix these 408 errors I always get? They come so often and I use Firefox and Roadrunner dial up!
MEANING THERE IS NO PROBLEM ON MY SIDE OF THE POND!

Thanks, and yes I spent 8 dollars so far on this version, I'm a legit guy to help out!
If not spank me. Spank me harder. Send me a Jebus.

The old software for uploading pictures was not suitable to work on the new server setup, once the fine-tuning of the servers is finished devs will continue working on these things. And no worries it will come back

We moved servers and image upload needed to be re-written. It is re-written and tested and we should bring it back tomorrow!

Brando, Imageshack became a paying service, consider allowing imgur or smt as a second host next to tinypic.

all these "free based games" are lame and only last so long.. They're all much like this , a BETA . Look at your biggest competitors , console and pc games for hardcore gamers. If you want the same solid game, over and over and over. Make it a complete one, make it a flawless one. Change is bad , especially if you have something as unique as this. You just need a mafia game more like candy crush , just say'n...
