Ilomilo coming to Windows Phone 7?

 

Nothing has been officially announced yet but I noticed that Ilomilo was present in Microsoft’s Brad  Brooks’  Xbox Live Hub on his Windows Phone 7 device (during his howcase demo at the Financial Analyst Meeting). I unfortunitely didn’t have time to snap a screenshot during the live webcast and it is not available on the company’s site (it has be recut and posted in several parts with stuff missing) so you will have to take my word on this one. Ilomilo is developed by SouthEndand and is Qualcomm’s showcase game for the new Adreno 205 GPU so this is kind of surprising given that everybody’s expecting the first WP7 devices to pack a “normal” Snapdragon SoC (with and Adreno200). The game is currently only announced for Xbox Live Arcade on the Xbox 360 but the developer have said that:

Q: What formats are you releasing ilomilo for?
So far it has only been announced for XBLA, but there is a possibility we will release it for other formats in the future.
Q: Are you making ilomilo for android? I have seen it run on MWC videos.
The version of ilomilo shown at MWC was a tech demo we made for Qualcomm so they could show off their snapdragon technology. However it is possible that ilomilo will be released for portable platforms in the future.

Check out the game running on Qualcomm’s MSM7x30 development device and Android:

    I was thinking very much the same. I do hope though, that if you buy it via the Live Marketplace you can then play it with Windows Phone 7 and Vice Versa.
