Bill Stiernberg:

 We’re pretty excited about this release. We have been working with TinkerHouse Games to produce the mobile version of Rainslick 3 and since Cthulhu iOS we have gained much valuable experience on what we want to do with this iOS product with a heavy focus on compatibility, interface and options.  I think it’s a great game to play on the go and looks fantastic on the iPad 3 and iPhone 4 that I have played through it on.  I can’t wait to see how people react to the revamped interface and to see how it does on the mobile / tablet market.

I’m also excited to finally bring the game to the Mac platform.  We and Penny Arcade really want to open up as many platform options for fans of these games as we can.   We know there’s not an insubstantial of Mac fans of Penny Arcade, and we think they’ll enjoy this game a great deal – so it’s an opportunity for us (Zeboyd) to finally reach some Mac owners for the first time (as our previous games were not released on the Mac).

 

Obviously all of us at HGD, our readers, followers and the RPG gaming community are just as excited and we can’t wait for this EPIC release!  We will have the links ready for you the day it happens! (tomorrow!)

Big CONGRATS to Zeboyd games!  You make us so proud!
