Radiangames Having a Huge Blowout Sale with 6 Games for Free and 5 for 99¢ Each

TouchArcade Rating:

I think it’s safe to say that Radiangames, aka solo developer Luke Schneider, is one of the preeminent developers on mobile. For many years now Luke has been putting out some of the very best dual-stick shooters on the platform, and whenever he’s not releasing a new shooter he’s releasing an insanely clever puzzle game. It’s an odd mix of genres to master, but Radian has done exactly that. They also don’t throw a whole lot of sales, but today Radian has decided to put literally their entire iOS library on massive discount, including 6 titles that have dropped down to free and 5 more that have dropped down to just 99¢. Here’s the full list of what’s on sale:

You may remember that last July Radiangames announced an upcoming project called Legend of Gigatron, which looked like it took everything they knew about making a great dual-stick shooter and added a full-fledged adventure game on top. It looked amazing. However, life as an indie dev is tough, and after a less-than-stellar foray into Steam Radian found itself in a tough financial position. They went on to release Devastator in September, but Legend of Gigatron’s future was kind of up in the air. Since then, Luke Schneider has gone on to team up with the original creators of Descent on a new game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC called Overload that looks mind-blowingly awesome.

Unfortunately, that means Legend of Gigatron is on the back burner for now. The good news is that Schneider does plan on coming back to Gigatron to finish it, and even has big plans to completely overhaul the visuals. The bad news is that he suspects it might be a year or two before he’s able to do that. In my opinion, Radiangames has earned the right to take all the time they need to get themselves in a good position to come back to mobile. In the meantime, if you are missing any of the games in the Radiangames library, this current sale is a great time to fill in any gaps, or perhaps experience their excellent brand of shooters and puzzle games for the very first time.
