FFG is showing off their beta build of an iPad (and Android OS soon) version of Elder Sign. Its got great graphics and slick game play.

A single player can use up to 4 investigators to explore an overhead map of the museum complete with monsters, locked dice, outer worlds and items.

More around Halloween and online play talk as well.

I assume this has been shown during the Arkham Nights 2011, which happen at the moment.

Android OS? Excellent. I doubt I'll rebuy Elder Signs just to have it in a digital form, but this gives me hope the Arkham Horror app will come to Android sooner than later.

I agree. If they can do something like Roll Through the Ages very well for iPhone, Elder Sign should work well, too. Please, FFG... I've been resisting getting an iPad for a long time now... Don't add to my temptation.

Now, if they would make an electronic version of Arkham Horror, I can see where that would definitely require the iPad (and would require me to buy one!).

Yes, yes...I ment iPhone as well. Also the number of iOS coders is about 2. So the whole electronic boardgames is a very new "department".

Ah, so you mean that FFG said that it should be available for iPhone as well at some point? If so, that's good news. And do you mean that FFG has 2 iOS encoders on staff?

Actually, the game they were showing off was the iPad version, but will be released with the iPhone version simultaneously.

The Android versions will be a little later in coming, but will be coming, we have been assured.

90% complete- there are a few minor differences between Elder Signs and ES: Omens due to difficulty to code certain interactions. I know they are also working on getting the GOO's in other than Az. They are waiting for Apple certification now, I believe, and looking to release it before Halloween.

Look like I picked a good month to dump my Xoom and give into the ipad dominance. Even when they DO say they will develop for Android...it's "down the road"...UGH, I heard that for almost a year before I gave up and drank some Apple kool-aid.

Hmmm, so it looks like instead of providing Elder Sign's generic, lackluster flavor text that doesn't necessarily give you a sense of a goal to accomplish or motivation, they forgo all text? Is that right? That seems dull. Maybe the card text is instead read aloud?

Still no mention of a release date and Halloween is almost here...

Looking forward to seeing it when it comes out, but what I'd *really* like is for them to bring the Call of Cthulhu LCG out on the iPhone/iPad. Online play for that (or any of the LCGs really) would be awesome.
