If you’re not playing Death Road to Canada ($14.99) yet, it’s time to take a step back and take a good hard look at your life and try to figure out what happened. For real though, it’s a great game, and still very much in the running for my personal game of the year for 2017. If you love games with random elements, dig Rocketcat’s humor, and want something to play that seems to spawn endless stories to tell other people who are into the game, Death Road to Canada will be your jam. One thing I begged for in the original pre-release beta of the game is MFi support as I’ve always preferred busting out an MFi controller instead of using virtual controls when playing marathon sessions of any game. Well, my wish has been granted. The game was just updated with MFi support.
If you haven’t yet, you should grab DR2C now, as the next update will ratchet up the price a buck. If you’re not familiar how Rocketcat typically prices their games, it works like this: They launch their titles at a lower price (in this case, $7.99), and with every update they increase the price by a dollar. It’s a real cool pricing scheme as it rewards early buyers who get additional value for free, and has future buyers pay more into the game since it has more content, features, and/or other things which weren’t around when the game was first launched (and priced). Rocketcat also never puts their games on sale.
But, this pricing methodology always manages to make a few people real angry, so strap in for haters hatin’. Me? I’ll be spending my time today making my way to Canada with a controller.
