Hello!

I've been wondering if telltale has any plans to release the walking dead
Onto android or the surface though I suppose its unlikely.:(

  • I doubt it since they're busy working on season 2.. Maybe they'll release season 2 on the android too. who knows

  • No Telltale games have been released for Android yet. No signs of that ever happening, but like Justin Bieber says, Never Say Never.

  • They said that there would be too many complications with Andrioid, having so many different versions & builds, unlike Apple which only has one for each product each generation.

  • Microsoft should've also only produced their own smartphones instead of letting whatever brand use Windows OS on their mobile phones.

    What Alanz said is true.

  • This is definitely wrong.

    It's just like saying : there are too many different pcs, screen resolutions, we cannot support it.

    target an api level (1.5 with the ndk is easy enough). and you have 99.9 device compatibility. If the problem is graphic/screen size resolution variety :

    If you target a specific OpenGL ES revision, it will work on any device that's compliant.

    Google recommends version 2.0 (same as apple) currently, and as it is native code, chances are the code is an easy port.

    It will work on 99.9% of devices. 0.1% left might be up to the chip founder / manufacturer to update the drivers.

    if it's input related, either the code is bad in the first place, or using an engine that is not easily portable; testable. either way, it's wrong and they must do something about it.

    I ported 2 audio apps from native c++ code, I had no problem at all creating the wrapper for the ndk specific functions. 200 lines of code for both opengl visualization and audio input-output, and reusable accross projects...

    Maybe I should send them a resume but I think it is just blind platform hostily.

    My 2c.

    Yay monopolization of smartphones!

  • I actually hope they don't. I have bought all the episodes on my PC and Ios and the ios is SEVERLY glitched. Sometimes you can't 'click' on certain things, save certain people and the save glitches seem way worse in ios. The problem is people who have ios think that it will be easier because the game is portable but don't realize how many glitches it has. The PC version costs the same amount but I think has the least amount of glitches out of all of them (besides the dreaded save glitch)
