So I'm at the point in my game development where I have to start deciding on a UI framework. Tablets are all the rage these days, but I don't use one myself. The reason why that is, is because I'm a PC gamer. I like strategy games and the occasional first person shooter, things like Crusader Kings 2, the Civilization series, that kind of thing. When I start making my game, it will be a strategy game of some complexity.
Every touchscreen game I have ever seen is a casual game where you poke at things and get a response. Have any of you ever seen a complex strategy game on a tablet? Please name them if you have.
What I'm wondering is, for the games I like to play and presumably make, whether keyboard and mouse is the only way, and that the touchscreen will never be a replacement for that. I worry that trying to turn a PC game into a tablet game is a fools errand to be strictly avoided.
What do you think?
