Play Store beats App Store in downloads for Q2 2018 by 160% but loses in spending by almost half according to App Annie

At the time many critics found that it offered one of the best interactive stories of its generation, which is probably why it was eventually released on iOS two years later. Of course, like many high-profile iOS games, Android was never considered for a port. Well, it would seem Android is no longer the forgotten stepchild as I am happy to report that we are getting our own version sometime in July, and you can pre-register for a release announcement on the Play Store right now.
