Speaking with TouchArcade, Andreas Illiger, the sole developer of Tiny Wings, said that he wanted to release a free update instead of a sequel “because then my fans will be happy on the release day when they see that the sequel isn’t a seperate app and they will get it for free. I worked on the 2.0 version for the last 12 months and everyone told me I should make a seperate app out of it and sell it again (because it is almost a new game and I would earn a lot more money). It was a heavy decision for me to give away this new version for free but it feels right…”
Version 2.0 of your favorite iOS game will be releasing sometime tomorrow. There will also be an “HD” version with iPad support, higher quality graphics, and a split-screen racing mode for friends to compete. Tiny Wings HD will cost $2.99.
