1112 Episode 01 was the App Store’s first adventure game, one exclusively designed and developed for the iPhone a year ago by Agharta Studio. It was highly acclaimed by the critics and earned a well deserved spot in our App Store’s Best Adventure Games. Unfortunately since then the developers took a little detour and released the excellent turn-based strategy – Rogue Planet, which delayed the intended release of 1112 Episode 02.
The good news though is that the game is almost finished and in the final stages of beta-testing. But it seems some people just don’t have the patience! A fan of the original game, through some covert means of her own, found the home address of the lead developer Alexandre Leboucher (whom we incidentally interviewed several months ago) and stole his personal iPhone to check out the game. And what’s more – she even videotaped all of it. Video after the gap!
Apparently FreeAppADay.com is not the only site, sponsoring game giveaways.
