Though Rudolf Kremers and Alex May don't have a firm date to announce yet, the indie developers behind Eufloria have confidently revealed that the release of their surreal real-time-strategy game on the iPad and iPhone is "imminent." What's even better is that the upcoming iOS version of the game won't just be a straight port, and will incorporate a bunch of new improvements.

Eufloria saw its initial release on PC way back in November of 2008, but also made its way onto the PlayStation 3 in October of 2011.

In a post on the official Eufloria development blog, Kremers describes the latest iteration of Eufloria as "the most comprehensive and enjoyable release of Eufloria to date." The iOS version is being co-created with Tunatech, another small indie team.

New music, new features, new content are all promised, alongside a new touchscreen UI. Though a price-point wasn't mentioned, the cost of Eufloria on iOS "will be pretty darn reasonable," according to the developers.

Kremers also teases a new "Ambient Mode," planned for the first update "that is more about nurturing and growing, relaxing and playing with the new terraforming mechanic."

In the meantime, feel free to check out the new trailer for the iPad version of Eufloria.
