Mü gets a shout-out from The Dice Tower!

This one's pretty exciting to me.

In the latest episode of the popular board gaming podcast The Dice Tower, hosts Tom Vasel and Eric Summerer count down their top 10 games from 1995. Guess which game is Eric's number 7! And guess which iPhone app he raves about!

It's nice to be appreciated.

Go listen to episode #168. The magic happens at about the 1 hour 26 minute mark.

If you've never listened to The Dice Tower before, or if you haven't listened to it in years, you really ought to give it a listen. It's really grown from its humble beginnings. Today's episodes are highly polished and professional, almost unrecognizable when compared to the early episodes. It's the one board gaming podcast that I still never miss an episode.

Mü is coming to the iPad

A few months back I brought Mü to the iPhone and iPod touch. Well just in case you haven't heard, I'm in the process of bringing it to the iPad and it's looking really good.

Rather than just "biggie-size" everything, I put a little bit of extra effort into the port and took advantage of the larger screen size to add a few more bells and whistles to the presentation. It's still the same game underneath but it just looks better on the iPad. In fact, the new version is a Universal binary which means that the same binary will run on both iPad and iPhone platforms. Those who have already purchased the iPhone version will get the iPad version for free once it goes live (and vice versa). I'm hoping to to have everything ready on or near the iPad launch day (April 3).

Here are a couple of pre-release screen shots to help you get as excited about it as I am.
