That's the first thing I've seen that actually makes me want to buy an iPad.

@TylerDax: Cooles Video, und sehr interessant, aber wenn Du schon online bist, wieso beantwortest du keine Geekmails?

There is a detailed thread here which unfortunately shows that we are very unlikely to get this on tablets angry

Still wiping up the drool after watching it earlier today. One can only hope something like this actually makes its way into the App store.

You guys aren't reading the other link. It has been clearly pointed out that legally, no matter how much Academy Games may like it, they can't let this guy publish it. Academy Games is in a legal contract with Matrix Games and a developer already, and the game is well along. I've been a beta tester on it for nearly a year now. And due to NDA's I can't really comment or make comparisons at this time.

If it's not available for OS X at least, then it's dead in the water for me.

Also, Matrix games COULD devise a product for the iPad, right ?

Yeah, this was a brilliant fan-made effort but won't see the light of day. As a designer and UX guy of more than 20 years though, I can tell you that I think his design rocks.

Matrix Games has a rocky, rocky relationship with OSX, btw. Slitherine gets their wargames to OSX, I'm not holding my breath for CoH though as Matrix is a very pro-PC developer.

I personally think a PC-only version would be a business mistake (Apple continues growing at 20%/year for the last six years, only PC manufacturer growing in last five quarters, 90% of computer buyers who spend more than $1,000 on a computer buy Apple computers etc) ... but no one listens to me. shake YMMV.

Thanks for all the kind words, guys. Working on this demo was a really fun experience and the feedback has made it all worth the while.

As has already been mentioned, CoH (not too sure what formats) is already in development. I previously spoke to Sliterhine/Matrix games but nothing really came of it. I've also spoken to other major board game companies (I'll let you guess which ones those were) but I've been so busy with work I've simply not had a chance to follow them up.

However, once everything has settled down, I'll continue on with what I was doing before although that's unlikely to be CoH. I guess I could finish it but I'd be the only one allowed to play it which kind of defeats the purpose.

Saying that, the codebase I've created could easily be converted to a different title (any suggestions?). I've already got one game I'm working on in the background (or will be once I have some spare time) but there's always additional things to forward to.

JJ.

Whatever game you decide to work on next, please just make sure it's one you can sell to me. I've yet to see a better UI for a wargame on the iPad, and it's a sin that the major players aren't throwing money at you right now to develop their games.

Oh, and if GMT was one of the companies you've been in contact with, for the love, please call them back!

How are you not having to fight off interested parties with a stick?

email GMT and simply say 'Combat Commander' and include a link to your previous work.

That should do it.
