Is there any chance that the game will be available on GOG?

Thanks!

Honestly? Myself.

It's bad enough I had to resurrect a VM that plays like a dog to be able to play it at all; I don't want yet another device/platform I don't have to be necessary to play. :-(

In general, I'm really not a fan of tablets (regardless of vendor), but I will admit it would be a very intuitive way to play.

Another vote, this one for Mac.

I bought it last night. That's the first time I've paid full price for a video game in a decade, I hope you all feel special. ;-)

Very fun to play. The stacked icons are kinda weird, but I can see why they did it that way. I did have one crash in the tutorial, but when I restarted the mission it played through again just fine. Got through the entire tutorial and about halfway through the second campaign scenario before I had to go do other things. Looking forward to more scenarios on the GEV maps, I was always more into GEV than Ogre.

One gripe: Spillover fire doesn't affect terrain. This is exactly the sort of tedious record keeping that porting a board game to a video game is supposed to take over for you. This isn't that big of a deal right now, but when they start to port over the Raid scenarios it could start to affect play balance.

Thank you for early adopting! As to terrain - yes, that should eventually be implemented. Auroch, is that on a punch list?

Different on console & mobile, but unfortunately them's the rules.

Thanks folks, great seeing the response so far!
Just to be clear I totally don't expect my PC license to transfer to android, I just want to be able to take Ogre anywhere I go. :)

And I totally understand people not wanting it on tablet. What I don't understand is people not wanting me (or anyone else) to have it on tablet.

I don't think anyone said you couldn't have it, just that it's something I wouldn't necessarily vote for. Given the choice, I'd like to see it on other workstations first before putting it on tablets, but that has nothing to do with your vote :-)
