Great news everyone! We can finally announce that our port of the original Carmageddon will be making its way to Android phones and tablets soon. And by soon, we mean NEXT WEEK!!!

It looks awesome but.... any chance we'll see a WP version of this....? *coughs*

Don't say that. It's taken them long enough to get the Android port out. how long would it take on windows Phone?. oh, maybe it'll run the GOG version, have you tried that? Does it run pretty much the same as Windows Desktop?
but I digress.. This is Great news!, and I'm sure the Andoid guy is happy too to be let out of his cupboard.

Can't see it running the GOG version, WP isn't quite that pick up and play! The new WP8 however is considerably easier to dev for however which is why we're starting to see more apps make their way across to WP thankfully. Admittedly cant see it happening with Carmageddon though, was more just a light tease question on my behalf. :p

Windows Phone is as much like Windows as iOS is like OSX. Realistically it shouldn't be as difficult to make a WP8 version of it as the Android version, though, as WP8's graphics API is DX11 (though only feature level 9_3) and supports pure C++. Still a shit ton of work, though, and while I would love to have it on my Lumia 920 I would prefer the development resources required for it stay focussed on Reincarnation.

Great to see the Android version is finished, though.

I do apologise. I was thinking he had 8 on his phone. Sorry for all the confusion.
