In life you have to do a lot of things you don't f*cking want to do. Many times, that's what the f*ck life is... one vile f*cking task after another.

We talked with Vlaada at Gen Con and it should be released in 2016. That's as specific as it got.

Has anyone heard which platforms it will work on? I've got an iPhone 6s, but have no plans to pick up a tablet anytime soon.

I have the physical copy, but it doesn't make it to the table as much as I'd like. This is top of my list right now, I just hope it still comes out this year.

Well clearly this didn't happen in 2016.

Let's hope for some time in 2017!

We talked to him over at Stately Play back in early November:

The relevant TtA stuff is here:

Stately Play: Let’s talk about the elephant in the room, Through the Ages. Where is it in development and will we see it before 2017?

Vlaada Chvátil: Through the Ages is currently undergoing internal testing of multiplayer (I have several games with my colleagues in progress right now). The game itself plays pretty well already, and once we improve the multiplayer experience (smoother switching between games in progress, in-game chat and few other things), we will run a limited beta test with external testers.

According to how the beta test goes, we will publish the game, but I suppose it will be very beginning of 2017. Meanwhile, we are improving interface, tutorial and other parts of the app. Personally, I am now working on interesting challenge scenarios, so there will be lots to play even if you prefer single player.

Has anyone played the app yet? Does it allow turn a day play? Or is the online play only real time online?

There are multiple speed settings for online play, including one allowing for one turn per day.

Strange that I can only find it on Google Play with the link and not by searching.

Also had this same issue despite trying multiple routes to find it myself.

Yes, it's glorious.

The app allows for asynchronous play, and you can set how long each player has to take their turn up to infinite time, which will never kick anyone out for taking too long. The other settings will boot the player and replace with a bot if they take too long to take their turns.

You can find the links for both Android and iOS Universal here:
