    Default Windows 7 & XP versions?

    Simple question: when?

    Unfortunately, right now we're just focusing on Windows 8.

    Question

    Is Windows 8 so different that games made for it are incompatible with the last 2 versions of Windows? Lots of missed sales opportunities if that is the case.

    If you build it around Metro features, then yes.

    There will be a non-Windows 8 PC version at some point, but we don't yet know exactly when.

    Oh dear looks like I'm in for a long wait, just have to stick with the 3ds version for now. Thanks for the clarification btw .

    It's still quite a while until Win8 even officially hits the stores (Wikipedia says October is likely), so can we at least expect the ("normal") Windows version this year?

    The developers of Skulls of the Shogun are doing the same sh... thing. Really anoying, and unless Microsoft is paying you guys a shitton of money most likely a (very, very) bad business call.

    I'm not sure how the game would benefit from Metro features..? I mean, when you're playing the game would you want it anything but full screen? And when you're not playing, I'm not sure how you'd benefit from having a panel on the metro dashboard thing... to remind you of your high score?

    I hope you do make a normal full screen desktop game version of it and release it outside the Windows store because I'd love to play it on a bigger screen than my 3DS but lack either of the consoles you've released on so far.

    Ok this thread is old but it's only one i could find about a version on Windows 7 !

    I want to play that but I don't have that windows 8 so I was wondering if a the game will ever be out on 7 ?
    I find this sad to release it only for 8 users...

    Hope I can play it one day. Sincerly

    They are likely making it for metro mode so it will work on Windows phones and tablets. So it might not be as bad of a buisness call as you think.

    I really don't believe that Windows Phones will ever reach more than, let's say 10% market penetration, even if we consider large timeframes. For the first couple of years I'm guessing that almost no-one will buy them.

    However that may be. You can sell your games for more money on the big devices (PC, PS3, etc.), so while on Phones you can only charge maybe 4$ for a game like this (and no-one will buy it, since it doesn't cost 99 cents), on consoles and PC you can charge 8$ or 10$, and many people will buy it, since it is still a steal.

    According to me,Windows 8 can support different GUI features for games. Some other driver will require for GUI features of game,I think this is totally different than the Windows Phones and windows 8 system.
