Everyone’s favorite Immigration Inspection thriller may soon be available on the go. In an interview with VG247, Papers, Please developer Lucas Pope disclosed that he wants the game to eventually release on Vita. The only hurdle is who will bring it there. The choice lies between making the leap himself or hiring an outside developer to handle it.
“Up until now, I’ve been the only guy who’s ever touched the source code or anything related to the game. And that’s just kind of a control issue,” Pope said in the interview, “For a Vita version, I’m 50 percent I want to do it myself and 50 percent I should just hand it off to somebody who knows what they’re doing and can take it over for me.”
The biggest challenge would come from adapting the game to take advantage of the features unique to the Vita and to address some of the concerns brought up by them. “I do want to do a Vita version, but the thing is there’s a lot of kind of interesting UI challenges to make it work well on Vita: much smaller screen, much smaller hit targets. So that kind of stuff interests me to try to figure out how to make it work well on Vita.”
