There's very little chance of us having gotten everyone who's going to play the game on PC to pre-order it. Our visibility/marketing is simply not that good
For all intents and purposes, most indie games have an infinite market (Indies call this the Cheng Infinite User Theory) because there's always someone out there that you haven't reached yet. Because indie games typically aren't competing based on a fad element (like graphics tech or hardware adoption), the major reason people don't play a game is because they simply don't know about it yet. And a percentage of infinity (for more niche titles) is still pretty much infinity. At least from the perspective of sales growth, given that new people are being added to the pool of possible buyers all the time.
But yes, I'm seriously keen to get DD onto mobile. I want to play while I poop, dammit! (Also, loads of people email us asking when they'll get the game on their phones, I'd love to be able to shout "THURSDAY!" and then run off, giggling)
