I started working on Idoru back in june 2007. The goal was to create a simple game for my Sony Ericsson phone.
But it turned out that no one had a Java Mobile Edition phone emulator for OS X. A lot of phone companies claimed to have one but when you finally got through 2-3 registration forms then the emulator was always “under development” or “coming soon”. The only real option would be to test and debug it on windows - and that would just be silly. So the game ended up as a java applet on hassing.org and never made it to a cellphone.
Until now. A mere 3 years later I finally turned it into a mobile phone game. It’s been completely rewritten in Objective C for the iPhone, iPod and iPad. This a brought a few changes to gameplay, higher resolution, music, and sound effects.
Give at try in the App Store.
The game was developed as a side project at ZenRockers I/S.
