Hi Undeadcow!
This game is planned to be iPad exclusive.
But it may change if we feel that the experience won't be deserved by the small screen.

Oh my God, SHOW ME MORE! The artwork looks fantastic and if it has anywhere near the replay value of FTL I will pay you twice for this game. Are you aiming for retina resolution?

Thanks

Replay value is one of the thing we focus on.
The galaxy you will explore is procedurally generated and there are different endings (also secret endings that unlock new storylines when you restart a game).

Retina will be supported.

Looks very interesting, and I like the graphics style.
And what little you revealed about gameplay (different endings, additional storylines) sounds good as well.
On my watchlist from now on

Yeah, you got it right, RPG and "choose your own adventure". Add to this crafting and resource management and we're good

You'll have to wait for in-game screenshots, though. But they will be very close to what you see in the teaser.
