Tyto Ecology Launches for iPad on the App Store!
[UPDATE: Tyto Ecology is no longer available on iPads, and is only available on PC/Mac via Steam. Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough visibility on iPad to have sales to continue to support that platform.]
We are excited to announce that our first game, Tyto Ecology, is now available to download on the iOS App store! We have been working hard for over a year to create this game and we’re thrilled to share it with the world. In Tyto Ecology, you are given the power to build your own ecosystem while learning about life sciences along the way. You must think critically and solve problems in order to balance a beautifully simulated biome, where your decisions determine if life succeeds or fails.
Tyto Ecology is available to download for free on the App store; this gives you access to over thirty plants and animals to place in the Desert biome! You can get access to the Grasslands and Rainforest biome expansion packs for $1.99 each, which raises the number of animals and plants to more than seventy! It runs on all iPad Air models, iPad Mini 2 & up, and iPad Pro. Also, since we were Greenlit by Steam, we plan to release Tyto Ecology on Mac/PC in a few months.
Thank you for all your support and we would love to hear about the game from you! For more information on Tyto Ecology, you can visit our website.
To celebrate the launch of Tyto Ecology, Immersed Games is having a photo contest!
We want to see your amazing creations, like the funny or awesome moments you capture, or just how incredible your biodome is! Submit your best screenshot or picture taken with the in-game camera.
The contest submission period will run from January 29th until February 12th (11:59 PM EST). After that, the team will pick our top 10 favorites and post the top pictures to Facebook for fans to vote on!
Each person who has a photo in the top 10 will receive a T-shirt from us! The person with the photo that gets the most Facebook votes from fans will also win two ecology-related science activity kits to experiment with and three free game keys (for you and friends) on Steam when we release on PC/Mac in a few months.
How to Enter:
It is easy to enter using Twitter or Facebook. Just post your favorite picture from the game with the hashtag #tyto and be sure to follow and like us so we can find you! Also, if you post on Facebook, make sure that your post is marked as public so that we can see it.
Photos that are chosen will be contacted by direct message to let them know it is time to vote and get their T-shirt size and shipping information!
Once the photos are posted on Facebook, people will have one week to vote on their favorites.
Head over to the App store to download the game and start taking those amazing pictures! #Tyto
