Release on Windows Store for tablets?

Hi,

I was wondering if Telltale have any plans to release the tablet version of The Walking Dead series on the Windows Store.

I tried the PC version of TWD on my new Windows 8 tablet but it ran very slow and was not suitable for touch controls. I assume the iPad version of TWD is a scaled down version that doesn't require much in terms of system specs you would find on a proper gaming desktop.

Could iPad version be ported to the Windows Store for people who have Surfaces and Windows 8 tablets which will grow a great deal over the next months/year?

I would happily buy the game again if I could play it with touch controls on my Windows 8 tablet. Is there any way to enable touch controls in the main PC game?

    I second this.
    I own a tablet running Windows 8 (not Windows RT) and the game runs fairly well on lowest settings, but cannot be controlled by touch.
    Since the controls already exist for the iOs version and since more and more Windows 8 devices will be coming soon I would really like this emerging market to be taken into account.

    I would even buy Back to the future and Tales of Monkey island (although I usually steer clear off comedy games) if they supported multitouch controll on a Windows system. ;)

    There is just something immeasurably cool about sitting in a bus and playing point-and-click adventures by touch. :)

    Would love to see an Windows 8/RT version as well. I own the Surface RT, great device only missing the walking dead game :)
    Although many people wont find their way to this topic i am sure, that once you release this game for windows 8 and RT/Arm many will buy it because of the quality en fun. :D

    I just saw you guys gonna make a new epside (Walking Dead 400 days) Will you port it together with season 1 to the Windows Store (RT) for people who own a Surface tablet and then i mean the RT version just like the iPad. I know more people who really looking forward to this game for their Windows RT tablets. I self played it on my dads iPad and it would be great to buy it for my Surface RT.

    I hope someone of the Telltale Team can response that would be great :)

    Another one who would like this on his Windows 8 RT surface :). Would be nice if it was a Xbox Live version of the game too with achievements! It would sit nicely on my tag next to my completed Xbox 360 version! :).

    Cheers!

    So far played a demo of the walking dead only buying it, if it comes out in the Windows Store on my Surface RT tablet. But i will buy when it does :D

    Would be more than glad if Telltale brings some of their games to the Surface RT. Myself i own the Dell XPS 10 but that is practically the same kind of device, also RT. Hope if you have plans that you guys bring the Walking Dead first and then Sam & Max ofcourse ;)

    Why should they support such a garbage OS?

    Windows 8 is junk and Windows 8 tablets are even worse.

    That is YOUR fault you bought a inferior tablet. Deal with it.

    I admit it isn't perfect yet (windows 8.1 is coming) but alot better than android tablets imo. But still i admit that iOs still is number 1, Windows tablets number 2 imo.

    At least i say its my opinion youre just some weird troll... imo ;)

    And in the end we are also people who like to enjoy telltales great games. If they say no than at least we have a answer :) Not one i hope ofcourse.

    Fine in my opinion, Windows 8 sucks.
    Linux is a far better OS, and yes Walking Dead works on it using WINE. (I paid for the game, I will play it on any damn platform I like)

    And Better than Android, Nope, sorry, not happening.

    Most Android tablets are better than Windows tablets. It is just a simple fact of life.

    You can either deal with it or not.

    This is actually a forum where we laugh hard on open displays of platformism. The laughing stops when you start insulting people. :mad:

    If you have nothing worthwhile to add to the discussion, leave the thread please.

    Its the last post i post about this cause its kinda off-topic XD
    Never said Linux can't play or work with walking dead. Hell you didnt even mentioned linux in youre first post. You like Lunix i like windows 8. So thats a reason for you to crash in a topic and tell no windows 8 sucks don't make it for that platform? I think everyone should enjoy it on whatever platform.

    Edit: see that a moderator is here so back on-topic :)

    Is it still safe to say that i too like too see a app voor the Windows 8 tablets ;)
    Myself got a Dell XPS 10 last week so i was quite suprised that their was no telltale app.

    Hope you guys are working secretly at a walking dead windows tablet app version ;)

    I support this too would be awesome to see some good apps on my tablet.
  • This would be GREAT! I would definitely buy all walking dead games to come on a windows touch supported system

  • Played the wolf among us this week on my pc (which is old and lags :P) But got myself a surface 2 (windows RT device) and would love to see the walking dead or any other telltale series to be released in the windows store.

    would be great to hear if you guys even consider it in the nearby future ;)

  • Personally i prefer playing these kind of games on a tablet. I also got myself a Surface 2 :) (love it) only downside is that there are no telltale games in the store.

  • I would love to see this happen. These are the kinds of games I'd love playing on a device like the Surface.

    Been a long time that i post in this topic. But still got my hopes up that this gameserie and more will be touch enabled and available in the Windows Store. Even a other game from telltale would be awesome :)
    Someone of Telltale staff care to tell us if it is even considered in the future? (x86 and ARM)

  • I don't understand why is this not available for windows phone? There are a lot of telltale games and walking dead fan who have windows phone. There is a IOS and a android version but we need it on windows phone too. Please telltale games make a windows phone version for us.
