Eufloria - BlackBerry PlayBook

We've just released Eufloria on the BlackBerry PlayBook. It actually plays really nicely on this device.

For more details, check the blog post.

What about an Windows Phone 8 version? :)

Windows Phone 8 and Windows RT are under consideration.

Windows RT is a definite no for now until Microsoft sort out their store. Our friends at Rubicon had real issues on it with Great Little War Game.

With Window 8, we're taking a wait and see approach for the time being but we would like to. The problem with Microsoft is that they're quite unpredictable and have not been successful at all on mobile. The cost of porting to this OS is higher than we'd like too - Blackberry was an easier port. That means we need to be more confident of it being worthwhile.

You've got a happy Playbook customer here. My wife and I are both Eufloria fans.

I do want to ask, what did the latest update do for us? I haven't seen any release notes.

Cheers!

Hopefully resolved an issue whereby the current level state may not save quickly enough when app switching.

Thanks:

Thanks for the answer! I just want to add a question. Why is it so hard to build the WP8 version? Should not be that the code from Win8 versions is easily portable to WP?

Windows uses different systems for rendering as well as various other standard port differences to any new platform. Our pc version is OpenGL.

Blackberry itself is still way off paying its porting costs but bb10 is released shortly. That was a quick port but it still has not insignificant costs. Windows 8 phone/rt sales for other games are so dire from the little we know that there is no way we could justify a more expensive port to that platform. Later this year hopefully things will pick up tho there are other issues with the platform too which I can't go into.
