An iOS app?

That would be an amazing addition, and may reach a broader audience.

Any thoughts?

Good point, phones would cramp gameplay.

I was thinking more for the tablet. It's the device I use for most of the day and I bring it everywhere. I'm just saying, the playerbase would definitely increase if there was more convenience and portability, and Genesis would likely get more attention on a platform like the App Store.

I have no idea if we have any iOS/Android programmers in our community, but I'd imagine creating such an app would be a really big task. Especially to make it reasonably playable on mobile devices. We'd definitely need some sort of button interface for basic commands like walking around and stuff. It would probably be a really cool thing to have of course, but it would probably also be an unpaid full time job for several months for someone...?

Btw, our client does work very well on my iPad, and something not many know about is that you can tap on the room exits to move around. So we have a little touch/click functionality already!

Quite right! As Cherek said, anything that is underlined in the client interface can be touched to trigger.

Anyone know how much it costs to get apps built?
