First Impressions: Curiosity – What’s Inside the Cube

Earlier this year, Peter Molyneux, the creator of the RPG series Fable, left Lionhead Studios and joined up with indie developer 22Cans. They’ve just released a free game on the App Store called “Curiosity – what’s inside the cube.” To risk understatement, we’ll say that it has an unusual premise. Because the game is so unconventional, a standard review doesn’t really make sense here. Instead, we’ll give our first impressions and urge you to play it for yourself.  Read More →

EA Mobile has announced that Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 will be coming to the iPhone and iPad at the end of the month.

ngmoco just updated its site with a teaser blurb on the KillTest video: “The official name of our FPS may still be a secret, but that has not stopped Arsenal Megacorp from leaking critical insights into its Experimental Combat Systems. Stage 2 (known as KillTest) is now live on fps.ngmoco.com, and it features our debut trailer.”

So, we were wrong. For the moment, KillTest is just what it sounds like–a “test” name for a killer-looking game. The post mentions that “Stage 3″ of ngmoco’s info drop will occur soon, hopefully with additional details.
