Gem Miner 2 will be released on Friday the 27th January. The recent delays have been due to making sure the game works well with just keyboard controls (for devices with keyboards and specifically Google TV), creating the custom levels, and a comprehensive tutorial.
I expect the game will release with 20-25 adventure levels and more will be added over time. These levels are much more complex than the old challenge levels from Gem Miner 1 and feature multiple objectives.
The original mode (one big mine) is still available of course, and includes new features like collections and character levelling.
There is now a feature freeze, and this last month is purely going into testing on as many devices as possible, bug fixes, balance, and general polish.
More screenshots soon…
