Game Maker on PSP Under Development (Handheld Devices Update)
January 13, 2010
Updated Jan 15th.
A couple of weeks ago we ran an article speculating on the devices which Game Maker games might be able to run on in the future.
Here is a compilation of comments that have since emerged from YoYo Games on some of the possible platforms:
“In 2010 we will begin an aggressive strategy to become the World’s most prolific publisher of Mobile Games, focusing on PSP, iPhone and Android based devices.”
- PlayStation Portable – Under development in Dundee, Scotland. It’s going well.
- iPhone – unlikely [to be able to play the final entries of the competiton on an iphone]. Although it is planned.
- Android – “If we can get it to work on iPhone, then Android will be a quick port …”
- Nintendo DS – “a long way off. Two Screens and low compute power make it a hard job, but we’d love to do it.”
