Submission + - Mika Mobile to Cease Development for Android (blogspot.com)

unassimilatible writes: Developers of the hit games Battleheart and Zombieville USA, Mika Mobile, have announced today that they will no longer be spending time developing their games for Android, DroidGamers reports. Mika Mobile's blog states the reason is, Android is simply too much work for too little profit. "We spent about 20% of our total man-hours last year dealing with Android in one way or another — porting, platform specific bug fixes, customer service, etc. I would have preferred spending that time on more content for you, but instead I was thanklessly modifying shaders and texture formats to work on different GPUs, or pushing out patches to support new devices without crashing, or walking someone through how to fix an installation that wouldn't go through. We spent thousands on various test hardware. These are the unsung necessities of offering our apps on Android. Meanwhile, Android sales amounted to around 5% of our revenue for the year, and continues to shrink. Needless to say, this ratio is unsustainable."
