Suburbia for iPad Details Arrive
Just received word from designer Ted Alspach on some of the details of the forthcoming iPad adaptation of his city-builder, Suburbia. Suburbia for iPad is being developed by Jeremiah Maher, who brought the very faithful port of It's Alive! to iOS back in 2012. It will play 1-4 players and will have both single-player (versus AI) and multiplayer options. No hint if that means asynchronous online, or just pass-and-play at this point. Ted also mentions that Suburbia for iPad will be playable at GenCon next weekend at the Bezier Games booth (#562). If you're looking for a release date, all we have so far is "this fall". Hopefully, Brad can nail down some more details next week with his GenCon coverage.
D&D:Arena of War Available for Android
Wizards of the Coast has started their GenCon blitz with the announcement yesterday of The Sundering. The Sundering is a year-long event that will take place in the Forgotten Realms and consists of weekly RPG sessions, novels, and a game for mobile devices called D&D Arena of War. It seems to be a 3D battle game, but it also seems to include "questing through the Forgotten Realms", so I'm not sure if it's a real RPG or a game where you just fight other players and/or monsters? It's available right now for Android devices, so maybe someone can fill us in on just what kind of game this is. It should be out for iOS devices soon, but no specific date was given. You can pick it up for Android (for FREE) right now on Google Play.
Regular coverage of board game experiences on mobile, PC/MAC, Console and more.
