    Recently they opened their developer portal, meaning that development is no longer limited to invites :
    https://developer.kaiostech.com/

    KaiOS is a new OS running apps with web tech on feature phones. The phone has little memory and RAM. Tiny/DOTS runtime has HTML5 export target. So I think isn't Unity with Tiny is a very ideal development platform for this? (as opposed to more advertised playable ads) We don't even need an export target that says KaiOS but just web assembly export that comes out small because it's Tiny.

    But I am surprised no one is talking about this yet. (here, or anywhere else on the net) Is there anything I overlooked that could be a roadblock to a straight export to KaiOS?

    From top of my head maybe, button input need some work. (I am interested in KaiOS particularly because I love buttons and these feature phones came with them, almost like a controller of sorts and that gives inspiration for different kind of games) And maybe we have no space for even compressed music, we may need tracker-like music format for KaiOS apps that works with Tiny. Lastly maybe integration with their KaiAds which as long as Tiny can interop JS it should be fine?

    hi - it's possible - I've been chatting to them about this and they're aware of it.
