After a succesfull release of the prototype on Itch.io Emiel decided to continues working on a version for Apple Watch. In Januari 2020 the project received funding from the Dutch Creative Industry Funds. The University Arts of Utrecht also allowed Emiel to study Swift in order to conceive TinyRPG for AppleWatch.
