Don't Starve iOS version


Recommended Posts

I remember there were talks about this earlier this year, and now that Reign of Giants and the Vita version have been out for a bit, I was wondering whether there's been any more news on this? iPad is the ideal platform to play this on for me.

Sorry. The Vita version plays like crap, and it's a portable console made specifically for gaming, Don't Starve just wouldn't run on IoS (Plus there's barely a market for it, since it'd only work on fairly large tablets and wouldn't even come close to working on a phone)

Are you positive about that? It runs XCOM, the Banner Saga, and FTL perfectly. All of which were released on iOS as iPad only games. And I can assure you there is a market for a game like Don't Starve on iOS, otherwise developers (like those of the above) wouldn't bother with porting their games their.

iOS will also be getting This War of Mine very soon.

So, basically there's been nothing from Klei about it since the initial mention early this year?

No word about it, although it's really unlikely. And although i'm not sure of the specs, I'm fairly sure the Vita is more powerful than your average iPad (Although im not 100% certain) and, as has been mentioned numerous times, there are a fair number of people unhappy about the Vita's performance

Fair enough. I'll wait on the official word since it's very tough to tell these days since platform performance depends on so many variables these days. But I have faith since iOS devices are able to run the games above.

Please don't turn Don't Starve into a phone game.

Why not..? It's just another platform. It would probably only come to iPad anyway.

Please if you dont know then dont comment like this. There is 1000x bigger market with iPads than with Vita ... i dont even know anyone that have Vita (also i never even see that in real life) but i know plenty of people that own iPad and would pay anything for DS on iOS

 

Also Sony is not happy about Vita - just google sales for Vita and then for iPad :)

 

Even new iPhones (im not even talking about iPhone 6 with new processors) are capable of A LOT better stuff than Vita/and what DS needs ... there are games with graphics that can compare to consoles and its on my phone and i can stream it to my TV trough Apple TV ... its not perfect but its here

 

About bad performance on Vita - its because Klei didnt optimise it properly ... its not even good on PS4 and look what PS4 is capable of so this is MAYBE not Vita fault but Kleis ... well they are new to this PS/Vita game so i hope they update it in future for better FPS 

 

Please don't turn Don't Starve into a phone game.

So Vita game is ok but Phone game is not? :D Flare just shush and update your internet plz :p

 

 

ANYWAY if DS get announced for iOS im buying iPad next day .)

In terms of Vita vs. iOS performance, the iPad 4 and above, and the iPad Mini Retina and above have superior graphics hardware.

 

CPU-wise I'm not sure, as Apple tend to go for lower clock rates in their CPU compared to other ARM devices, but still manage to keep up due to a highly optimized OS.

 

Ultimately the latest iOS hardware is better than a Vita. But whether Klei want to release an iPad 4 / iPad Air only game is a tough question, it would limit the iOS market quite severely.

 

I'm pretty sure the Vita version does suffer from poor optimization, as there are far more complex games (both graphical and mechanic wise) on iOS and Vita that run faster.
