Are still under development. The estimated publish time is in Spring 2016. Games can already be easily played with mobile/tablet platforms with the browser. The software is going to be published at least on Android and IOS platforms.
But Why multi-selection instead of command-line? (like in the good ol' text games)
Well the thing is that typing with a tablet (or even worse with a mobile phone) would drive every player mad (if they even would give it a try) in ten seconds. Multi-selection is very smooth way to play on any platform and do not underestimate how complex games you can create with SATU - Text Games Maker
Ye it's pretty complex to move from screen to screen.
Not quite. In SATU - Text Game Maker you can also, beside the movements, create items which player can pick up and use in the screens and create actions which can (but are not obligated to) require items. Items can also be gained from actions. Sign up/in and explore the Text Game Maker to learn more about items and actions
So what's this thing about "Oldskool-look"?
It's ANSI, baby! In practical sense, you can create a text game that looks exaclty like text games you would have created in an original DOS-enviroment. You can also use the Oldskool Theme Editor to simply create your own ANSI art. You can export your arts in .png format.
What are the system requirements?
In any platform Windows, MacOS X, Linux with a Modern Browser including Google Chrome 30+, Mozilla Firefox 34+, Safari 8+, Internet Explorer 11 or Edge. SATU - Text Game Maker shoud work also with latest mobile/tablet browsers but the compatibility is not guaranteed. Game play with mobile/tablet browser works.
