The fine folks at Telltale still refuse to publicly admit that Tales from the Borderlands will be coming to iPad. But we know it will. Don’t we? It should be the next big story game series now that The Walking Dead Chapter Two is complete. Well I’ve convinced myself of that anyway. I took a bit of time at PAX to play through about 30 minutes of the game and it’s everything I’ve come to expect of a Telltale game — amazingly well done. I can’t wait for it to come out on iPad. Are you listening Telltale?
PAX Interview: Hotline Miami 2 and Hatoful Boyfriend publisher, Devolver Digital, on mobile plans and the launch of Cosmic DJ
But what most piqued my interest was the trippy Cosmic DJ set to release this month on iOS.
A clever music sequencing tool masquerading as a super fun EDM RPG, Cosmic DJ is the first game from Austin-based sound design studio GL33K known for its work on iconic game franchises including Halo, Uncharted and Metroid.
On the show floor, I found myself boogie-ing for over an hour in Cosmic DJ, battling bad vibes to reunite lovers, best buds, a band and a dismembered corgi through the power of music. I raved to killer tracks, immersed myself in the acid graphics, and howled at the lulzy dialogue.
Steven Universe – Attack the Light is a new game from Cartoon Network that takes a light Pokemon type RPG into the Steven Universe, uh, universe. Steven guides his three other characters through a series of dungeons battling them with light and fun turn based attacks. Look for Attack the Light later this year.
Adventure Time Game Wizard is an in development game we saw from Cartoon Network at PAX this year. The game allows players to develop their own platform game using either grid paper or the in game editor. Creating levels using paper is done by using a set of standard symbols for platforms, elevators, coins, etc. Longer levels can be created by using multiple sheets.
The game should be great for kids that want to create their own games, an easy introduction to level design. Look for Adventure Time Game Wizard later this year.
Light in the Dark is a light based puzzle coming this week to iOS. In the game, light emitting characters are moved around a game board to light up stars — light all three stars for a perfect score on the level. As the levels progress, more obstacles, more difficulty, and much more to manage. It’s a great looking game and includes 60 levels from the easy to impossible. Look for it in the App Store soon.
