iPhone version?

Any chance there might be an iPhone version of TLJ and Dreamfall in the works? TLJ might be especially great as an iPhone app; it's graphics should look incredible on the small iPhone screen. I bet it would sell like crazy and even at a dollar or two, be a nice little revenue stream for FunCom.

iPhone versions of MYST, Syberia, and Return to Mysterious island are in the works. All should appear in the 1/2 of 2009. What other adventure games would make good iPhone apps?

Well that would be sort of cool. Though adventure games might not be the best ones for such small devices. Too many details. Broken Sword tried both PS, and PSP(or was that NDS?), but the handling is difficult and small things of great importance tend to ..disappear.

I think they'd all make terrible apps, simply because pixel hunting on such a small screen would be unbearable.

But that doesn't mean I don't want someone to get TLJ working on an iPhone.

I guess there's a tiny chance for a small game in TLJ universe (like Silent Hill: Origins for psp). I can imagine it being set during 10 years between the games, with one of the side characters as the protagonist, say Brian Westhouse on his journey. Probably action with some puzzles. Throw in a small spoiler or two and the game will sell like hot cakes.

mr.Tørnquist, are you reading this?

I must admit I admire peoples' skills in formulating ideas with so much less effort than I do. Here I go 'bla bla bla ..um.. too detailed... bladiblah ..to small... blah blah.. difficult'. Then in comes a hero of words and simply says "pixel hunting on such a small screen would be unbearable"

Go for it. There probably aren't too many people left who remember the derivation of your current one any more anyway

I just meant 'get away with it and NOT look like a tool'. But I don't think that's going to be possible.

Yeah, well you're not helping: I saw you're usurpation of Script Pixie powers the other day when I was being lazy!

An iPhone version of TLJ and DTLJ, I don't think that would happen, for a number of reasons and not forgetting the iPhone is a fad anyhow and I hate them, I really, really do wish they would just disappear from the face of the earth..

Script Pixie Powers! Care to explain, because you have lost me?

After DF came out SadeLyrate was the one people would turn to for quote from it (eventually she posted the whole script on her site. ), so she was the Quote Fairy. Because I had TLJ Viewer, I was the one who posted quotes from TLJ.

I think it was Sozdanee who decided the male (and TLJ) equivalent would be a Script Pixie. He even started a thread about them.
