Indie developer Christine Love announced that her sci-fi visual novel Analogue: A Hate Story is coming to iOS devices later this year ahead of a Japanese release for PC platforms.

Named as an Indiecade finalist in 2012, Analogue is a text-based adventure game in which players investigate a derelict space vessel with help from a lonely AI companion. The iOS version, developed in collaboration with Golden Gear Games, will require "a little bit of reworking," by Love's estimation, before it hits the App Store.

The Japanese version of Analogue will feature a translation by Playism, who previously produced a remake of the indie PC platformer La-Mulana. A release date has not been announced.
