Default Mac or Mobile

Have you guys ever considered releasing games for Mac or any mobile platforms?

i used to love TEW and WreSpi and i really want to try CBH, but i dont wanna have to buy parallels just to play these games... theyre the thing i miss most about windows though.

Is there any chance ill be playing these games again in the future?

There are no plans for any of my games to be converted.

Doing a Mac version would be a huge undertaking, both in terms of having to rewrite everything to work under a completely different platform and in terms of the time and cost of having to buy a Mac and learn a new programming language. The potential gains simply aren't anywhere near enough to justify all of that, especially when the user can get the games running using other software anyway.

I have absolutely zero knowledge of mobile gaming, but I would suspect that my games are not well suited to that environment.

well i went out early this morning and got parallels and am now running an old version of Windows XP as a VM on my macbook pro, using the ipad app for parallels i can also access it from my ipad.

I installed comic book hero trial and have been playing it on the ipad to great effect...
