Late last year Cornfox & Brothers, one of the developers responsible for the collaborative iOS racer Death Rally [Free], revealed Oceanhorn, an action RPG set in a gorgeous world with a heavy emphasis on exploration and discovery. In January a quick gameplay video was released which only served to tease us even more. Oceanhorn looked awesome.

Well it’s been fairly quiet since then on the Oceanhorn front, but the developers have recently reaffirmed on their blog that progress is being made on the game, and have a couple of brand new screenshots to prove it. The top screen demonstrates how your character can interact with various moveable objects in the game, and the bottom screen shows one of the many random caves you’ll run across during your adventures which is waiting to be explored.

Oceanhorn was intended as a 2012 release, though Cornfox & Bros. are being kind of mum about giving out any sort of specific launch timeframe, or even if it will indeed make it out this year. I’m personally of the mind that I’d rather wait for the game to be done than play an inferior product sooner, but it’s tough because I’m really looking forward to Oceanhorn, as are many players in our forums. We’ll let you know as soon as we get any more information on this highly anticipated release.

  • ImJPaul

    Wow. Looks awesome. A little concerned about the dpad and one button gameplay. Could go either way.

    • wafflestirrup

      I'll take what I can get!

  • ConceptNormal

    How can you tell by a 30 sec in-game (blurry I might add) that this will be amazing? If that was the way the sword fights unfold, I'm all set... Back to Bastion...

  • klouud

    been waiting for this for a while - NO RUSH THO!  TAKE YOUR TIME!! - this game will be an instant buy for me.  Regardless of what I am playing, I will dump it all to start on this game!

  • Rican Rann

    OMG I want so bad. 

  • ducksFANjason

    Thanks for the update on this TA, I'm really excited for this! I hopd they take their time as well. All my waiting and hoping will be wasted if they rush out a pile of crap.

    I love how the developer takes time to really make this game work. Put a good pricer tag on it, and avoid IAPs PLEASE. (The App Store should be named the Greed Store) and I will happily pay a premium price to play a rock solid Zelda like iOS RPG by a top notch team. Good to hear you're still aiming for a 2012 release but do take your time to make the game as perfect as you need this to be. And you will see that success does not require IAPs and speedy released but quality gameplay, solid programming and fantastic graphic design and storytelling. People will pay for that. I seriously do not care if you price it Final Fantasy style. I'll pay.

    • klouud

      Yes!  Tell that to Square Enix please!  Anywho, this game looks like its gonna give me wet pants syndrome.  

    • ILSc0p3z7I

      Don't give them any ideas...

  • Gamer_Kev

    Glad to see some info for this game. I was beginning to wonder if it was MIA. This is one of the game I've been waiting for.

    Oh man, Nintendo must be freaking out! There are so many decent "Zelda-likes" for touch devices that are not on DS's. Not only do folk "give" these small, floating portable devices "their money" whenever they have a nervous tick, one doesn't even have to go to the bank to get the money, it just "takes it." Geeze! If I were Nintendo I'd try to develop a tablet that let's people give me money too!

  • Epenka Kwee

    Been waiting for this ......... Love Zelda type game. when when when the release date ??

  • Ozzy111

    Looking superb but I think it needs some items like a bow and arrow and boots and stuff like that. That would make it really cool I can't wait to play it when it's out!!!!
