Here’s a bit of neat news for old-school RPG nerds out there: Rocketcat Games’ lo-fi RPG, Mage Gauntlet, is presumably worming its way through the Apple approval process as you read this post. The studio notes on the game’s web site that it has re-submitted this afternoon after having to, unfortunately, yank a build that was also submitted today, too. If all goes well this go-around, we should be happily plucking away at the Secret of Mana-ish title later next week at the earliest, but the possibility of delay is always there with these things.
Considering its delightful look, its inspiration, and Rocket’s pedigree, it’s no surprise to us that its had a share of buzz among our community. Let’s add one more trailer to the drool-inducing pile. In addition to sharing the aforementioned news with the world, Rocketcat has dropped a new trailer that you can view just below this text stuff:
One of the coolest things about Mage Gauntlet is that it’s subscribing to the “more action, less grinding” school of design, meaning you get to spend more time doing meaningful things in the game. Also, it seems pretty self-aware of the genre and that’s expressed mechanically, which is a fourth wall-breaking twist a lot of studios say away from. Needless to say, we’re excited about this and definitely want to give you more details as soon as possible. Stay tuned!
