i would love to play most of the games you have made, yet few are available for xbox and none for android, will they ever be ported to either?

    I can't see the future, but here's an overview of the current (as of three weeks ago) Android situation regarding Telltale's games:

    @crofael said: We currently have no plans to do releases on Android. The main reason has to do with hardware. iOS devices all have a similar profile: there's an easily identifiable minimum amount of memory, CPU and GPU power that we can target from an engine standpoint.

    Now think about Android. How many different Android devices from how many different manufacturers are available? In the hundreds. And for the most part, they are all extremely disparate in their hardware specifications. Between this device fragmentation and the fact that most Android devices on the market are not all that great for gaming, we'd rather focus on making our engine better on the platforms we already do support.

    All that being said, I'm a programmer and so I'm not up to speed on what our sales and marketing plans are for the future, so it's entirely possible that at some point we'll start putting our games on Android. But in the meantime I'm afraid it's not in the cards.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. :/

  • thanks for the reply! not exactly the best news but its better to know :D
