A Monster’s Expedition () is an open world puzzle adventure from Draknek who brought us A Good Snowman and Cosmic Express. It is one of the rare Apple Arcade (and PC) games that was actually revealed by the developer prior to release on Apple Arcade. It feels like Apple enjoys just doing shadow drops each week for games. A Monster’s Expedition has gorgeous visuals and great music to compliment the relaxing adventure. You push trees to create paths to explore hundreds of islands as you learn about humanity as a monster. Watch the trailer for A Monster’s Expedition below showcasing gameplay:
A Monster’s Expedition was already on my radar because Draknek’s other games are excellent but the music in the trailer sold me on it. A Monster’s Expedition is rolling out now on Apple Arcade. Check it out on the App Store here. It releases on Steam on September 10th as well as Apple Arcade so expect it to go live at about 10 AM PDT.

As with most weeks, some other Apple Arcade games get updates alongside a new release. Today, The excellent Grindstone gets a new daily grind mode to go along with the previous one. This has its own leaderboard. The game itself gets 20 new levels and more gold item blueprints. Two very welcome features are a fast travel map and item refill from backpack. What The Golf? gets its Sporty Sports Special update with even more wild takes on traditional sports from the main menu, a challenge mode with new levels, and bug fixes. Check out our forum thread for Grindstone here and What The Golf? here.
