WHAT IS STILL TO COME?
You'll be really pleased to know we have even bigger plans for the future!!
The next update (Version 1.4) will be released much more quickly than this current update and development is already underway with a planned release date of June 2021.
It will feature:
1. Points based variations of the standard game... all we can tell you is that they are very exciting to play!!
2. The Question Store Grand Opening. At first with a limited selection of question packs but with MANY more to come in 2021 and beyond
3. The ability to change the standard categories included with Outsmarted for custom categories during game setup with a simple drag an drop interface.
4. New in game bonuses and events
Then we will begin work on our last, but biggest update of 2021.
POSSIBLE NEW GAME FEATURES WILL INCLUDE:
We would like to thank everyone for their patience. We realise this update has been long awaited by many of you, but we hope it has been worth the wait.
We are confident that by the end of June when Version 1.4 is released that Outsmarted will have become the game we set out for it to be when we launched back in December 2020.
That's all for now folks! We hope you enjoy the update!
