App News: Rise of Vigil Expansion Released, Lone Wolf Chapter 3 Coming and more...

Rise of Vigil Expansion for Ascension Released
We just learned a few weeks ago that Playdek and Stone Blade Entertainment had renewed their partnership and Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer would move forward as it has since it was released over 3 years ago.



Yesterday the latest chapter was added to the Ascension story as the Ascension: Rise of Vigil expansion was released. This expansion includes nearly 50 new cards including energy shards that unlock special powers hidden in heroes, constructs and monsters.

Ascension was one of the first iOS board games that made us all sit up and realize the potential for board and card games on a touch screen. If you haven't picked up Ascension yet, you can nab it on the App Store right now for FREE. The Rise of Vigil expansion can be picked up as $4 IAP.



Lone Wolf Chapter 3 Coming
Joe Dever's Lone Wolf is an interactive gamebook turned up to 11. Seriously, it only resembles the gamebooks we grew up with by the occasional text that pops up on screen, otherwise it's a fully fledged action RPG.

It's being released episodically, and the third chapter will be hitting the App Store on August 7th and will be available in-game via IAP.

Joe Dever's Lone Wolf is currently available for iPad on the App Store. It costs $5 for each chapter, or you can pick up a "season pass" which will give you a discount on each chapter.



Tin Man Games Releasing Appointment with F.E.A.R.
If you've been following the evolution of digital gamebooks you might think that Tin Man Games is getting left behind by innovators like inkle Studios and Bulkypix. The Tin Man gamebooks still look and play just like their paper forebears, but with their latest gamebook, Tin Man might be pushing the boundaries of digital gamebooks forward once more.

Appointment with F.E.A.R. is a superhero themed gamebook that is using Tin Man's new interactive comic book engine. It seriously looks like something from ComiXology. That's not all, though. They've also added a trading card game to the mix where you can collect and trade cards based on what happens in the story. Rare cards are...well, rare. It sounds more like a collectible thing, rather than a game, but it sounds cool nonetheless.

Oh, and did we mention that the author of Appointment with F.E.A.R. is none other than Steve Jackson (II) who wrote some classic gamebooks including the Sorcery! series.

Look for Appointment with F.E.A.R. to hit the App Store and Google Play in late August.

Curse of Naxxramas on the App Store
We knew the first expansion for Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft would go live today, but weren't sure of the time. Looks like it happened about an hour ago! That's right, the first wing of Curse of Naxxramas is now available with an update to Hearthstone.

The expansion wasn't the only thing added in this update. Here's the iTunes blurb for the whole list:

Dungeon Lords Kickstarter Includes iOS Puzzle App Stretch Goal
The past few weeks, Czech Games Edition has been pushing the Kickstarter campaign for an anniversary edition of Vlaada Chvátil's dungeon-builder, Dungeon Lords.

While it's mighty impressive, it really has no place in an iOS blog...or does it?

Turns out that they've added a stretch goal at $222K that will involve CGE hiring some developers to create a Dungeon Lords puzzle app for iOS and they promise to have it ready for us in 2015. I'm guessing this would be something akin to the combat tutorials/puzzles in the rulebook, which are awesome, so we need to make this happen. Unfortunately, they're only at about $180K with just over 2 days left in the campaign.

Anyone have $42K they can drop on this for me, please? I'll be extra good.

If you want to check out the campaign and help out, head over here. Not only is the cardboard version pretty fantastic, an iOS version would be pretty cool as well.
