'Broken Sword' developer to support iPad
Revolution Software has revealed that it will support the iPad.

Managing director Charles Cecil expressed his excitement for the platform, saying that the studio will be working on a new property for the device.

"The device is amazing. Personally I think that while the ebook market, currently dominated by Kindle, is the most obvious target, the area with the biggest potential is the enormous netbook market," he told DS.

"Netbooks have been so successful because there is a huge demand for a small, portable device and there hasn't been much available. With the release of iPad everything has changed.

"As a small developer-publisher, the iPhone/iPod touch has been a fantastic device to publish for - we love Apple's latest creation and will certainly be enthusiastically supporting it."

He added: "Our future plans for iPad are primarily in relation to a new property, rather than revamping existing games."

Revolution Software has released iPhone versions of Broken Sword and Beneath A Steel Sky in recent months.

The iPad, which can play existing iPhone titles as well as applications built specifically for the platform, was revealed by Apple last week.
