In my experience, Unity is the great battery eater for no good reason. I got better performance and battery life while playing xcom (1 not 2, but that was pretty hard on a system too) than when playing $random_unity_game. Every time.
I'll do my best!

As such, we will likely release these games to generate a bit of operation revenue for the company. These games won't be under the "Basilisk Games" label since they aren't RPGs or adventure-style games, though I'll be sure to share a link if anyone wants to check them out and help support us.
Have you released any of these mobile games yet?

Funny you should ask. Just this morning I was considering taking a week or two off of developing "the big game" to finish up a couple of the mobile games that are sitting in my projects folder. One of the games is essentially done- I just need to take the time to figure out what I need to do to get them up on Google's / Apple's App store. The submission process is somewhat of a headache, from what I have read.

So yes, I'd love to have at least one of them up by summer. Even if the game only brought in a few dollars a day from ad revenue, it'd be a helpful supplement to Eschalon's slowing sales.

Thanks for asking about it! I'll likely depend on some of you Pub patrons to download it and shoot it a 5-star review so it doesn't get buried too quickly.

Playing through Eschalon Book 1 again and venturing on to the Books 2 and 3. This is getting me amped up and looking forward to what is to come next! Thanks for all of your hard work!!!

I'll check out the mobile offerings too when ready.

P.S.... So far the Eschalon Book 1 has been working great on a Chromebook running Ubuntu 14.04 via Crouton... Steam and Eschalon on my Chromebook. Quite nice!!

I hope I LIVE LONG ENOUGH to play the new game as I am 94 but healthy. Am about to finish up a new play through with a Ranger/sorseris and am running out of enemies.
