Few questions...

Post by NLS » Thu Apr 14, 2016 1:27 pm

It is sad that development is not as active as this project deserves.
There is no alternative either.

I have a few questions if someone cares to answer please:

1) It's been years since last release. Will we get a new one (i.e. in a logical time frame)?

2) I've seen some discussions about porting to Android... How far has this gone?

Thanks.

In fact, it is still very active, but this activity is admittedly currently only visible for those using the Git repository. :-/

Oh well, yes, you're right, it's really time for a new official release. To make waiting for it a bit easier, I have at least released a first release candidate of the upcoming version 4.0.0.0, as not everybody is in the situation to build the game from source.

Please have a look at the official site (www.artsoft.org) on the "News" and "Download" pages. :-)
2) I've seen some discussions about porting to Android... How far has this gone?
It's ready to go, but not very polished, and more or less identical to the desktop version (but at least has got some basic touch/wipe controls).

I have also released the 4.0.0.0 release candidate 1 for Android, please see the "Download" page for an APK package.

Hope that helps! :)
