I receive a fairly-regular string of emails asking why Ben There, Dan That! and Time Gentlemen, Please! aren’t available on iPhone/ Android/ Windows telephone devices. The answer’s generally pretty simple: they’re made using AGS, and until that’s portable to mobile devices there’s not much I can do.
Believe it or not, though, some people are WAY smarter than me. About six months or so ago, this clever chap requested the Time Gentlemen, Please! source code, to see if he could get it running on an Xbox or Windows 7 phone. My code is beyond horrible, I can’t bear the thought of people looking at it and laughing, but reluctantly I agreed.
So here you have it. Time Gentlemen, Please! running slightly-clunkily on a futuristic handheld device. Pretty neat!
Don’t get too excited, though. Despite its lack of sexiness, Privates was famously deemed too out-and-out sexy for Xbox. I can’t see an ultra-sweary and occasionally-juvenile game like Time Gentlemen, Please! with Hitler’s stool, mouse rumpy-pumpy and pretty much all the swear words imaginable making it through, leaving this a proof-of-concept video only. Shame.
