I remembered when I first played FTL, I though it would be right at home on tablet. Glad I wasn't the only one.

Glad to see this confirmed, I had heard that they had signed an exclusivity deal with someone so it wouldn't be coming to iPad (I assumed Sony / Vita).

FTL is a fun game, I have been obsessively playing it since the Humble Bundle sale but it does get repeatitive after a while. The interface seems like it could be a perfect fit for touch screens.

I e-mailed Gaslight Games, the developers of Dungeons of Dredmor and they confirmed an iOS port is still in development but has been delayed until after their next project.

I wander which control sheme it'll get.

Playing on PC it was only possible while heavily using a dozens of keyboard shotcuts.

On iPad/iPhone it's a completely different story.
