Touch Screen Controls

The FAQ says that this game will come out on Android (which is great because I'd love to have this game on the go), but I was just wondering what the plan was for touch controls since there is a lot of information shown by mouse hovering in the current beta.

We've put a lot of design time into figuring out how the game will work on touch devices. We haven't moved across to developing for touch yet (that'll only happen once the PC/Mac build is good to go) but right now the game duplicates all mouse-hover information quite easily if we simply have tapping on a monster select that monster, allowing you to attack it via an extra "attack" button on the UI.

Quite a few other things will change as well, the Kingdom interface is being redesigned to not require as many mouseovers, for instance. But we're certain we can get it to be a fun experience on phones. The major issue is actually making sure that the game isn't too small on the screen right now, flooding the area with clickable tiles and making everyone's fingers feel fat...
