Devolver Digital is Bringing Three Cool Titles to Apple Arcade
Devolver Digital will be releasing Cricket Through the Ages, Exit the Gungeon, and Bleak Sword on Apple Arcade.
On September 19, Apple Arcade will be launching for only $4.99 a month. It’s bringing some pretty cool exclusives with it too like a new Chu Chu Rocket, Frogger, and an RPG by the Octopath Traveler team. Over the past few days, popular indie publisher Devolver Digital has also pulled back the curtain and three of their new Apple Arcade titles: Cricket Through the Ages, Exit the Gungeon, and Bleak Sword.
To start, Cricket Through the Ages is a comedic multiplayer sports game from Free Lives, the developer behind Broforce and GORN. It’s a cricket game that features a variety of locales and people from throughout time and space, though its physics systems and art style will certainly turn some heads. You can check out its reveal trailer below:
Next up is Exit the Gungeon, which was actually confirmed last week. As a follow up to Enter the Gungeon, this game is another bullet-hell shooter that sees players trying to climb out of the titular Gungeon. Check out its short gameplay trailer below:
Finally, Bleak Sword was revealed today. According to Devolver Digital, Bleak Sword is “a dark fantasy action game from developer More8Bit challenging warriors to fight their way through compact, cursed diorama battlefields. Through nine tense chapters, heroes must lift the curse of the legendary Bleak Sword by striking down all manner of creatures in every forest, swamp, castle, and dungeon on their journey. Invoke powerful magic, uncover helpful items, and level up your character to upgrade your stats before facing off against menacing guardians.” It looks fairly minimalistic but Bleak Sword is the title that has piqued my interest the most out of Devolver’s initial Apple Arcade lineup.
So far, Apple Arcade has been able to net itself some pretty impressive titles from both indie publishers like Devolver Digital and some larger studios, so the platform may end up cementing itself as the prime location for mobile games. Cricket Through the Ages, Exit the Gungeon, and Bleak Sword all are debuting through Apple Arcade.
