Developers, why arent we getting the iOS content?
With Steam being probably your best bet at selling lots of copies of KoDP, why are we being left out of the additional scenes that were included in the iOS version?

As said by other user, it seems even David Dunham doesnt know why they are being left out:

Can you guys please clarify?

Steam users will get all additional content in the future. There are some technical difficulties in porting iOS update to PC. Nothing critical but it takes time. Working on it already.

Whew! For a moment there i thought it could have been some exclusivity deal or something with the additional content (and thus you guys were blocked off from porting it).

Still cant wait to get the game! :D

Uh... So basically this version is the GoG version until you guys figure out how to port the mobile version?

No, this is the Android version that already has alot of new stuff in it (the 48 new scenes and technical improvements).

The iOS content i mentioned are some additional scenes, which so far are only present in the iOS version. But thankfully will also be featured in this one :D

What this steam version has:

There are 48 new scenes and 4 new illustrations (plus a new Lore map). There are also new advisors, and a lot more advice in management screens. There are also more treasures. We made many bug fixes (such as unblocking two of the original scenes), and fixed typos. You no longer have to worry about sheep. The economics system should no longer be quite as harsh, with death spirals less likely. (Rest assured that the game is still difficult, especially on the Hard setting.)

What this version doesn't have (yet):

HeroCraft originally started their porting before our scene contest, so those scenes are currently only in the iOS version.

The source code for the original (which is the gog version) has been lost long ago apparently. It had to be remade to create the android/ios/steam version.

Considering the original is rather diferent from this one, i am GLAD its not updated, i wanna be able to check out both versions, not being restricted to one or the other.

Is there a screenshot anywhere about this new Lore map? I already have the Android version and the GOG.com version and am pondering whether to buy this Steam version (R.I.P Tula-window) because it still looks very good. Although having read that some people have bought the game like 5 times already maybe buying it 3rd time wouldn't be that much...:P
