Any future iOS release?
« on: March 09, 2014, 01:55:33 PM »
Anyone know if Arcane Wonders is planning an iPad app or something like this?.

Best regards.

No plans have been announced for a digital version of the full game, but they are working on an official status tracker: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1112059/official-mage-wars-status-tracker-application

I think the X-box live market would be a great format to release a digital version of the game. MtG has done it pretty successfuly.

I think it would be better just to release a computer version. I think it's likely that a lot more people have computers then Xboxs

I am Sailor Vulcan! Champion of justice and reason! And yes, I am already aware my uniform is considered flashy, unprofessional, and borderline sexually provocative for my species by most intelligent lifeforms. I did not choose this outfit. Shut up.

The cost of programmer time to program complex game rules correctly is staggering.
I can take the fun out of anything. It's true; here, look at this spreadsheet.

Yeah MtG has been around forever and have many fans all over the world, so they are able to afford the cost. It's one of the most popular card games and has one of the most dedicated fan bases.

AW is a relatively new company and MW is a new game so it will most likely be a while until something like those MtG games get published, unless AW blows up in popularity. I hope they do, they certainly deserve it!

Playdek has made a great job with games like Agricola, Ascension or Summoner Wars, I think they could nail it.

Any update on the timeline for the status tracker/spell book builder app? Would love to see this soon.
