I want to introduce my game, but before:
Do you play roguelikes on mobile devices or PC?

Sorry I am late.

I much prefer a proper computer system myself. Most roguelikes nowadays are not coffee-break games. They are complex and require focus. It is much more comfortable to play them with a proper screen and keyboard.

That said, I have played some HyperRogue on Android - yeah, not exactly a traditional roguelike, but you get it. The games are playable but the experience is not the same.

I always prefer to play on mobile phones, since they are usually short-game games that are ideal for that format.

The same thing I prefer too. PC is always a good option for gaming!

Actually, I think PC is always the best choice for any reason

Indeed, now looking at the rate of mobile phone usage, it can be seen that this is a device that everyone uses. Of course, releasing the game on mobile will reach a wider audience. For PC will require higher configuration to play.

I mostly play on PC, but I know games in mobile are just different expectations for most players. Sometimes however I believe it's good to break those expectations of casual gaming, to provide a deeper experience for players that just want to play a more complex game on the go.

That's why I made Ananias, I guess.
