given it describes itself as started on the iOS / iPad ect as the market for 4x games as non existant, porting over to devices like the PC seems a waste of time as that is the "home" of 4x games.

Spending all that money to go to the Mac seems wrong as I am under the impression that the iOS and Mac coding is similar enough not to require a major rewrite.

The android one might be interesting as I suspect that will take a while, but it gets back to the original question of why.

Heck, given the power of the PC, it could run emulation software for a iPad (if it exists?) and not suffer given the performance difference from a iPad and a normal PC.
