Oceanhorn 2.5 is live - Win iPad Air 2!


It's time to start tweeting!

Oceanhorn 2.5 has just been released, with Ultra Graphics for iPhone 6/+ and iPad Air 2 - just in time for some celebration!

Celebrate the 1st anniversary of Oceanhorn with us and take part in an awesome competition! Brand new iPad Air 2 can be yours, just follow these steps and participate!


◈◈◈◈◈◈◈◈◈◈◈◈◈◈◈ How to Participate ◈◈◈◈◈◈◈◈◈◈◈◈◈◈◈◈

1 ) Take a beautiful SCREENSHOT of our game or do some awesome FAN ART
2 ) Tweet your image with #oceanhorn before 10th of January 2015 to participate

The development team will look for all the #oceanhorn tweets and handpick the best entry. Winner gets a new iPad Air 2!

- You guessed it. It runs Oceanhorn on Ultra Graphics!



Couple of tips for your screenshot hunting! Your screenshots will better stand out, if you take them from places rarely seen in Oceanhorn screenshots. You can also pick up objects and place them around for better compositions. If you climb higher, camera shows more of the landscape. It doesn't have to be all artistic though, if you manage to take a screenshot of a rare event in the game it might work for your benefit! - To take a screenshot on your iOS device, press lock- and home-button simultaneously.

For artists out there, we judges here love colors, so colored artwork will immediately have better impact than quick doodles. All kinds of fan art is appreciated, but why don't you try to capture some of the most memorable moments from Oceanhorn! Screenshots might be easier to take, but fan art has unlimited possibilities to win this competition!

Only one will win the iPad Air 2, but we will feature the best of screenshots and fan art here in our blog with comments from the development team.

Unleash your creativity and impress us!

Oceanhorn 2.5 Update 11th of December


Apple has released a new set of amazing devices and we want to keep Oceanhorn up to date. We have worked hard this autumn to make sure Oceanhorn meets the expectations of those who have the new devices. New iPhone 6, 6+ and iPad Air 2 owners are able to enjoy Oceanhorn with 4x more polygons, new lightning effects (normal maps, ambient occlusion), tweaked character art and tweaked 60 fps performance!

I see something BIG coming!

Can you spot what is new in this update?


Carefully now, don't let it get away! We have been developing this update for a while now! It is something that could be considered as a DLC on console games, but as a token of gratitude for you, loyal Oceanhorn players, we will continue our No-IAP policy and release our DLC and content pack free of charge!

This update is 90% done and we will begin testing soon. We will tell you more about it later, but in the meanwhile this screenshot will help you reel in what this update is about! :)

Is it raining in here? It was clear just a minute ago.
