Qin, St. Petersburg and Niagara News
We recently spoke with Ewgeniy Oganian from Elately to see what they're up to now that their first digital boardgame conversion, Qin, has gone live. First the good news: iPhone users will be happy to hear that the iPhone version of Qin should be released in December of 2012. The bad news? St. Petersburg and Niagara have both been slightly delayed. We mentioned earlier that St. Pete's should hit in November and Niagara in December. Push those back a couple months. They're now aiming for a January release for St. Petersburg and February for Niagara. They're both in beta right now, but testing is taking longer than expected. They have also updated their website with a cool "behind the scenes" post that shows what went into making Qin over the past year.
Haggis Now On Sale
The card game Haggis by Sean Ross and developer IQ Foundry has gone on sale from $4.99USD to $2.99USD. Haggis was reviewed quite positively when it was released, and I have enjoyed many games of it. It is single-player only and the AI isn't too tough to beat, but it is still a fun game (playing this app pushed me to go and order a physical copy of the game). Haggis is for iOS Universal and can be found on the App Store.
Fistful of Penguins Update Coming in December
Developer Crooked Smiles has told us that a major update to their port of A Fistful of Penguins is coming, hopefully, next month. The update will introduce multiplayer in the form of pass-and-play, new achievements and an "advanced" setting which was recommended by the designer of the game, Jonathan Franklin. A Fistful of Penguins was reviewed by Brad back in August if you need more information on the game. A Fistful of Penguins is for iOS Universal, costs $1.99USD and is available on the App Store.
Leviathans Online Coming to Kickstarter
Catalyst Games' tabletop miniatures game about flying battleships, Leviathans, is coming to PC and tablets as Leviathans Online. Catalyst and Hyper Hippo are staring a Kickstater for the project on December 3. The game should have a single-player campaign as well as different multiplayer modes not present in the physical game. Not much else to go on at this point, but we'll keep you up to date as the project advances.
