Chair Entertainment creative director Donald Mustard has promised a sequel to XBLA hit Shadow Complex.

“I’ll put it this way. More Shadow Complex isn’t a question of if, it’s a question of when,” Mustard told Eurogamer.

“Shadow Complex is our baby and we love it dearly and, y’know, we’re working on some cool stuff. That’s all I can say.”

But not on iDevices, apparently.

“I still cannot think of a way that we’d be able to bring over the precision controls [to touchscreen devices] that Shadow Complex needs to be amazing,” Mustard explained,

“… Shadow Complex is designed for a controller. I’m not a fan of trying to shoehorn console controls onto touch screens. They don’t feel right. You just lose so much precision.”

Mustard had previously commented that Chair has “sweet ideas” for Shadow Complex 2.

Thanks, CVG.
