Want Baldur’s Gate on your device? You’ll have to put in a vote


If you don’t remember, Overhaul Games is looking to bring the Enhanced Edition of classic RPG Baldur’s Gate over to Android. The project has been in the making for a while, but the team suffered a few delays here and there, and won’t be promising a release date anytime soon. They do want user input on which devices should be targeted, though, so that’s where you come in.

The developers are holding a poll at their forums trying to see which devices will be worth targeting first. Some popular options in the poll include the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, the Nexus 10 and Nexus 7, the Motorola XOOM, ASUS Transformer TF300 and more. Only 10 devices are listed, but users can put votes in for other devices by responding to the thread.

I should note that this doesn’t necessarily mean these will be the only devices the game is available on. It’s possible the team already has some popular devices, like the Samsung Galaxy S3, in mind, and targeting devices on this particular list might just be a way to make sure they’re targeting as many people as possible — they’re using them as reference devices, if you will.

We’ve reached out to get a clearer idea on their intentions, but if you want to make sure your favorite device will have a chance to run this game whenever it launches sometime this year then be sure to sign up at their forums and let it be known.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
