Oceanhorn was accidentally released. We apologize.

Screenshot of Shame.

An early prototype of Oceanhorn was automatically released on App Store last night. It was night time in Finland, that's why it was live for hours before we heard about it ourselves and pulled the plug. We are deeply sorry for the inconvenience.

Those of you who purchased Oceanhorn, get your refund through App Store channels.
- In receipt email, or from iTunes Purchase History, click "Report a Problem" link
- Select "This application does not function as expected" for explanation
- To comments write: "Developer has issued that this is an unfinished build of Oceanhorn and it was accidentally released."

Again, we are deeply sorry for this pre-mature release. We hope this does not change your enthusiasm towards Oceanhorn.

So what happened? If you want to reserve a name for your game on App Store, you will need to upload a playable build to iTunes Connect. The build that was now automatically released, is 1.5 years old. It does not compare to the final product in any way.

Hey, maybe we should compare it. Here are some of the more recent media from Oceanhorn.

This is where the game begins!

Withered Lands is definitely not a boring place.
