Costume quest phone update?

Recommended Posts

I played Costume quest one on my iPhone 6 for some nostalgia but I cannot play it anymore as 'the developer needs to update it'

This is because iOS 11 doesn't support 32 bit applications, as mentioned in this news update:

Many other apps share Costume Quest's faith as mentioned by this article, which states that more than 180,000 apps on the App Store won't be compatible with iOS 11:

It's sad for sure, but that's the nature of closed ecosystems.

I don't think that's available for iOS. Is it?

Unfortunately it is not, I was just wondering if a port of costume quest 2 was possible to mobile.

I don't have any inside knowledge, but I think that it's probably not likely to happen so long after the initial release. It would likely be a big effort to adapt to the smaller screens and different input, it would require new rounds of QA and certifications, and there would be less hype, which means it might not be profitable.
