It should port easily enough.  Performance might be worse but I have a global variable to rescale the game complexity to account for this in the config object.

A few features will not be ported initially.  The editor for instance nor some of the keyboard commands.  Also because it relies on right clicking to move units it will not play on mobile and touch screen devices.

As said before the engine is excellent work - the game not so.

There are some major graphics flaws which need dealing with - walking through walls, graphics popping, etc.

You are falling into your old trap:
The game is great - it's not - it has a sound concept - that's all
Why wont anyone play it - because it's not appealing or engaging
why doesn't anyone like it - because you REFUSE to put time and love into your work

Your last fail is to not listen and insist the 'metrics' say otherwise - when you have repeatedly been proven wrong.

Matty - Observe and listen and improve :) But above all take time and put love into your projects...
Don't get petulant and whine and seek attention - it does you no favours

No worries.  I haven't actually asked recently why no one plays it.  I'm not really worried about that.  I enjoy it which is what counts.

I kinda have to agree. when I played it, it felt like a great base upon which you have to build an amazing game but it was not an amazing game yet

6,000 downloads ain't bad for one of my games though.

If I remember correctly - only around 10 were actually played?

Even if thats true it means it looked interesting enough to download and put in the "I will play that one day pile"
Up until a month ago I had Oblivion in my steam games list for well over a year and had never played it. Does it mean Oblivion is crap? certainly not it just means other things kept me occupied and I think that is the main problem now a days, to many games and not enough time to play them.

And personally the game does look interesting and it plays interesting, it just does not feel entirely finished.
