Polarity(iOS) Would you buy this game?

Hi All,

I'm looking at porting this game I made to iOS:

Youtube link | Pop Up

Currently it's on Steam Greenlight here:


Here's a demo so you can see what to expect:


I'm planning on it, but it's considerable work so I'm trying to gauge opinion, thanks for any input.

Instabuy! First person puzzle platformers are awesome and super rare on IOS. Voted on Greenlight btw.

Are you planning to release on Desura as well, that site seems much more indie friendly (Many Greenlight games are already released on Desura)

Edit: Played the demo, yup I'd definitely get this. Although I'm curious, what kind of control scheme are you thinking of?

I was asking on NeoGaf if people would want to play this and a common concern was how it would control. Someone asked if it will have support for the IOS 7 gamepad

Yeah the plan is to release on Desura too.

As for the controls, no way around virtual analog sticks but yes I will be supporting the gamepad (once I get my hands on one).

I wouldn't worry too much about the analog sticks though, I'm thinking of tailoring some of the levels more to touch devices so they are more mentally challenging and less reaction based.

Do you have the Neogaf link?

First person puzzle is interesting, but the 3d game scene seems too simple.

Truck World in development

patience, and discipline...

Just IOS or overall? What do you mean by "too simple"?
