Niche Mobile?

Recommended Posts

I saw this in the suggestions part of Niche and it got quiet a few down votes plus it also had a comment by an administrator that it would most likely never happen. I just wanna get a bit more information on why it wouldn't become a possibility in the future or the main reason why it wouldn't become a thing. Honestly it sounds so fun and since my computer's hard drive just conveniently decided to malfunction...

Perhaps its because. . .

  1. Hella money
  2. Hella controls
  3. How would it work on tiny phones
  4. Did I mention it'd cost a lot of money?

it would be super cool, I don't see it happening in the near future.

Though, if Stray Fawn sold merchandise or did another Kickstarter... Maybe!

Good points butttt.... 

I've seen some games that are made to not be compatible with phones and such, only being compatible with things like iPads and stuff... but the money and controls are one of the biggest issues that I didn't really think of. 

If they start a kick starter for Niche Mobile I'll literally throw all of my college savings into that kick starter cause oMg I want Niche on mobile so bad lmao

It's important to remember that most phones aren't tiny little laptops, with the exception of windows phones. They use a different architecture, different OS, different hardware, etc. 

A port to a phone isn't the same as moving from PC to Xbox - its not as bad as writing the game from scratch because the mechanics exist and the assets already exist, but the programming time is comparable. 

It's also an ongoing cost. Going forward, it's a commitment to support what amounts to an additional game, with separate effort required for buggies and updates. 

I don't mean to patronize, so I'm sorry if you knew all this, but it's not an aspect of the problem that's always obvious to players.

We would need to rebuild the whole game (both graphics and programming)  to get it running on mobile unfortunately ^^
Switch would be more likely, but there are currently no plans for ports.
