You might remember a long time ago, in May of last year to be exact, we learned of a very cool story about how Devolver Digital held a very unorthodox "open call" at GDC 2012 for up and coming developers to pitch them ideas about the games they're working on for possible publishing deals. One of the fruits of that experiment was a game called Dungeon Hearts from indie developer Cube Roots, which Devolver was impressed with and jumped on board to assist getting the game finished an out the door.
Even at that time both parties knew Dungeon Hearts was a ways off, pegging it for an early 2013 release, which sounded like forever back then. Well, time is a funny thing because here we are already in the early goings of 2013, and as promised Cube Roots and Devolver Digital have announced that Dungeon Hearts is set to arrive on the iPad later this month on March 28th. Here's a new trailer.
Dungeon Hearts seems like the perfect game to take advantage of the larger screen space of the iPad, but I'd be curious to know if the team has toyed around with putting the game on iPhone or iPod touch as well. For now, the game will be for just the iPad as far as Apple devices go, but will be launching on PC and Mac through Steam in addition to regular PC distribution channels. I'm curious to finally get my hands on Dungeon Hearts, and if you are too then mark your calendar for March 28th when it launches in the App Store for $2.99.
