It’s been a long time coming, but we’ve finally completed work on the Android port of A Dark Room. You can find it on Google Play, right here!

    Do you mind sharing which technologies you used to port it to Android? Did you rewrite it or did you use a tool to compile your code on GitHub to an APK?

      Neither the iOS nor the Android versions of ADR are built using the javascript source code. The mobile versions are written in Ruby, using the RubyMotion framework. Don’t blame me; Amir is weird like that.

        Is it possible for you to make “A Dark Room” for online mobile like you have done for Gridland? Great game but I can’t play it on mobile.

          It’ll take a lot of love to make the web version of ADR suitable for mobile. The UI relies heavily on hover-state to convey information, which doesn’t work on a touch-based device. Additionally, the layouts are all based on having a wide display and would need to be totally reimagined for mobile. I don’t have time for this, but if you do feel free to make a pull request on GitHub.
