The Battle of Polytopia is a turn-based, world-building, 4X strategy game developed by Swedish gaming company Midjiwan AB. Players play as one of sixteen tribes to develop an empire and defeat opponents in a low poly square-shaped world. Players can play against bots or human opponents, local or online

I couldn't have said it better, myself.

I might as well rephrase it to see if we can get a proper response from zoythrus, why was the app photo changed? Any particular reason?

So, there are 3 main reasons:

  1. We ran a study on app icons, and noticed that downloads increased by 20% when this icon was the one representing the game on the App Store/Google Play.

  2. The app icon was changed to match the store icon, since the store icon was so popular (as per reason 1). This was to reduce confusion.

  3. We wanted to change it.

I predict you're no attracting the kind of crowd you want with a game like this. I mean app sales are sales, but this definitely appeals more to people looking for a simple game.

And that's not a bad thing.

Midjiwan wants everyone to enjoy his game, whoever they are.

i'm 99% percent sure number 3 is first, and then you found some reasons with number 1 & 2

Surprisingly not, actually. We were actually shocked by the results, and were like "welp, guess it's time to change it".
