Update #9

Update #9: iPad Video

8 comments

Antharion has been successfully ported to the iPad! And the good news is that it runs, looks and feels way way better than we ever imagined it could on a tablet device. We believe that there is a place for serious RPGs on tablets and it just so happens that Antharion is perfectly suited to the platform. Touching and dragging interface elements like spell buttons from the spell book over to the action bar feels so much more intuitive on the iPad. Selecting targets in combat and opening and closing interface panels feels effortless. It's hard to tell from the video, but Antharion looks gorgeous on the iPad's display. Check out the video...

      The cloud storage saving system sounds great will definitely buy the Ipad version if it works.

      @Chuz, one of our development iPads is a 3rd gen retina display and the game looks incredible on it! The first time we got it working I was shocked at how good it looked. We have considered using cloud storage, so that you could continue a game from pc on the ipad and we'll definitely be looking further into this in the future.

      Very nice, does the game support the higher resolutions of the iPad Retnia? I will definitely be upgrading my tier if it includes an iPad version as well! Also, have you considered using iCloud support for game saves? I would be cool to save a game on the Mac (or PC) then pick up where I left off on the road!

      Can't wait!

      Keep up the good work.

      Yes, we will add the iPad version either as an add on or else we'll squeeze it into the existing reward tier structure in the coming days. We're still working out a price, because Apple forces us to buy them before we can give them away to you guys. Also there won't be a beta for the iPad version.

      So for those that have already pledge, will the iOS implementation be an option as well for the beta as well as release??
