I bought it for Android without playing it yet, mostly to support development of one of my favorite games (bit strange that it's more expensive than the GOG version though). I'd rather play the game on the PC than my phone though, is there any hope for an updated PC version?
Though I don’t understand why this sentiment is going around. The mobile version is significantly enhanced (e.g. about 50 new scenes on Android, more on iOS) and can be actively developed.

No. The development system we used was discontinued in 1998 (yes, before we released).
I don't really understand, couldn't they port the Android version to the PC? Even if the Android emulation or port is very inefficient it's not like the game need a lot of resources.
I just looked around and there are Android emulators for your PC, so it should be possible, quite easily actually, to play the Android version on the PC.
I haven’t seen exactly how HeroCraft ported, but I think there is a reasonable chance it could be brought to desktop Windows. I don’t know what the economics of that are, it’s certainly a different market and I think they have only one game out for desktop Windows.
I do know that HeroCraft is concerned about piracy, so I hope that if anyone else is around with emulators you’re using a game you bought and not one that someone stole from us and posted somewhere. They told me that good Android sales make it more likely they will bring the game to other platforms.
