id announces orcs and elves for DS
When id software released Orcs and elves as a mobile game it was hailed as one oft he most engaging mobile games of its time. Seeing as it was buried in a sea of casual and minigames this isn’t saying much, but the game resonated enough with fans that its prompted a sequel, and a port to DS.
Yes I know what you’re saying. A port to DS?!?!?! OMG! DS is the new Wii. Not so. I have faith in John Carmack. making games in the mobile space teaches you a lot of things, one of which is that you can’t just strictly port your experiences developing from the console or PC to a smaller platform. Granted, they’re porting upward this time, but hopefully the experience with mobile games has given him and his group a unique insight on how to match a game to the platform they’re making it for.
