There’s an App for IF!

This week, I got news that a friend of Textfyre (who shall remain anonymous for now), who knows iPhone development pretty well, is going to help us build FyreVM for the iPhone.  This will allow us to publish our games to the iPhone App Store. The timeframe is fluid, but it looks like we’ll be sending our first three games to the App Store this spring.

In other news, Empath’s Gift is chugging along on the coding side, sales of Shadow in the Cathedral are slow, but steady, and we’ve added a fourth development team to the mix. The new team is still working out their story idea and as soon as that’s solidified, there will be a formal announcement.

There is also a fifth development team in the works and I’m waiting on one more e-mail to solidify their involvement.

As always, stay tuned!

    Oh right, certainly — I just wasn’t sure from the post that you knew of other iPhone IF apps.

    And sometime, an Android implementation?

    • I think it’s safe to say that all mobile devices will get fair treatment over time. The iPhone is the elephant in the room of course. But I also see that mono has been ported to Android and is nearly ready for full app development. If that’s the case, it may be fairly easy to push the Standard UI to Adnroid via mono.
