Can I Playing Blackwell Series on my new Phone?
« on: June 05, 2014, 06:04:03 PM »
I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace Style Phone & was wondering if I am able to play the Blackwell games on it? Also I own them so does that mean I need to buy them again for my phone too? If anyone knows please let me know thank you.

Hi darkwolf! This is addressed in the FAQ linked from the About section:
Quote
Q: Why are most of your games only available on Windows?
A: The games were made using a PC engine, which only compiles to PC systems. We are in discussions with a third party to port our back catalog to iOS, Mac and Linux. So it will happen, just slowly. We have already ported Gemini Rue to just about everything. The Shivah will follow suit soon, followed by the Blackwell series.

You can buy Gemini Rue and The Shivah for Android etc right now, so Blackwell should be coming... eventually! You'll probably have to pay again, but don't quote me on that.

Hopefully they don't mind me stepping in to answer this, feel free to correct me if I have anything wrong.

The first three Blackwell games are *this* close to being ported to iOS. Legacy was just submitted to the App Store last night, actually!

Ok thank you. Sorry if this topic was already brought up. I'm new to this Internet phone so I don't know all its capabilities.

Hi Dave,

I recently played the first two Blackwell games on my Macbook and plan to replay them as soon as they are released for iOS. Will the iOS versions come with the commentaries like the mac/windows version?

Does that mean the contracted third party mentioned in the FAQ has started on porting the first three Blackwell games to Linux as well?

Yep! They are already ported. We are testing them now.

Thanks! That's awesome news! :-)

Looking forward to playing the original trilogy again plus the last game that I have yet to buy since it was released after I stopped using Windows and Wine.

EDIT: Oh, it's four games I've played. I forgot that the last game was actually the fifth.
