AAA iOS Game République Launching This Week. Plenty Of Metal Gear Credentials!
Looking to create a AAA title for iOS, Ryan Payton (of Metal Gear Solid 4, F.E.A.R., Halo 4 and Kinect fame) along with Logan (the California based production house behind the amazing Skyrim TV spot, Apple iPod ad’s and MGS4 opening movie) have founded studio Camoufla to successfully Kickstart it’s first project, République. The unique game uses a one touch control method to challenge players to help a young girl escape the confines of a surveillance state.
The stealth game which has been in development for over 2-years launches this week, and bolsters the familiar voice talent of Jennifer Hale (Mass Effect, Metal Gear Solid), David Hayter (Metal Gear Solid – he also wrote the screenplay for the first 2 X-Men films don’t you know), Khary Payton (er… Metal Gear Solid …I’m spotting a trend), Dwight Schultz (famous for being Murdock in the A-Team but also, yep, you guessed it Metal Gear Solid) and introduces Rena Strober (not in Metal Gear Solid).
IGN has managed to score the exclusive launch trailer below.
Episode 1 Coming to App Store December 19th, with a PC version is coming in 2014. What do you think? Do AAA iOS titles interest you? Does the games cast and studio credentials give you confidence?
