Games that redefine games.

It's an extraordinary time to be writing games. Beyond a Steel Sky is super ambitious in that it's taking a full, high-quality console game directly to mobile. We're working with the legendary comic book artist Dave Gibbons, who co-created and drew Watchmen. The story, character modeling, graphics, the audio, all of those come together to create a gameplay experience that's completely immersive.
Where Cards Fall tells a very personal coming-of-age story that other publishers wouldn't take a chance on. We're not shying away from uncomfortable, formative experiences. We see the characters at school, we see them at the homecoming dance, we see them have a fight with their mom. It's really important for us to be authentic.
There's no guns, there's no killing, we're just telling a story. We're almost the complete opposite of the current market and most people typically wouldn't see it unless Apple Arcade existed.
Fantasian is a game that shouldn't exist. Every day is a challenge creating gaming worlds by hand. We are building dioramas, photographing them and adding 3D characters. I'm a little scared of how many sets we are going to have to build in the end.
We wanted Lifelike to have a calming effect on players. I'm not aware of another game that uses swarm behavior as its main game mechanic. This fascinating beauty was inspired by natural phenomenon. We just simply don't want to be responsible for adding another layer of chaos into the world.
Overland is a post-apocalyptic road trip strategy game. The cool thing about it is every time you play, it's different. You never know what people you're going to meet or what places you're going to go. We're really excited that Apple was doing this platform because people have iPads, people have iPhones, and that means bringing a whole new audience to games. That's awesome.
Apple Arcade is like the perfect avenue for expanding creativity.
For us it was like, "Ah, finally! Finally someone who gets it."
It's almost like a miracle for us developers.
Apple Arcade is all about giving developers the freedom to come up with really interesting ideas that could never have been done by the mainstream. Everything is changing.
