'Wayward Souls' Is Finding Its Way to the App Store Later This Month

In a late-night post on its Facebook page, Rocketcat Games officially announced that Wayward Souls will hit the iOS App Store on April 24th. This isn't entirely unsurprising—the game was submitted to Apple earlier this month, after all—but it's nice to have a firm date after a longer-than-expected development cycle...

GDC 2014: Rocketcat's 'Wayward Souls' Might Actually, Finally Be Close to Finished (and It Looks Amazing)

Rocketcat Games make some of my favorite iOS titles, and ever since they announced a spinoff to their action RPG Mage Gauntlet [$2.99] at last year's GDC, I've been dying to get my hands on a finished version.

Our last real look at it was at GDC this past year, where Rocketcat's Kepa Auwae walked us through some of the ins and outs of the game, and we thought it looked great. However, during the rest of 2013 Wayward Saga development picked up again, and most recently Rocketcat mentioned on their Facebook page that they're shooting for a January or February release. They've also released some new work-in-progress footage, which you can see below...

GDC 2013: 'Wayward' is the Spiritual Successor to 'Mage Gauntlet'

Earlier today, I sat down with RocketCat Games' Kepa Auwae to discuss Wayward (previously Mage Dungeon), a pseudo-sequel to its 16-bit adventure homage, Mage Gauntlet [$2.99]...
