In my interview with the creators of Rogue Planet (TMA Review), Agharta Studio hinted at the sequel to their highly acclaimed adventure game – 1112 episode 01 – the first adventure game originally and exclusively designed for the iDevice and it’s unique capabilities.

Agharta studio has just posted a viral teaser video along with a trailer, showing all of the features of their upcoming 1112 Episode 02 adventure game [TMA's exclusive hands-on preview]. The teaser apparently shows what happened to a friend of the thief who tried to steal the developer’s iPhone with a beta build of the game. Crime just doesn’t pay.
And to see what all the fuss is about – be sure to check out our full in-depth preview of 1112 Episode 02 or simply take a peek at the gameplay trailer after the break. Remember – it has already been submitted and should out and about on the App Store sometime this week.
A little over a year ago, while the App Store was void of even a single decent quality adventure game, a small independent developer called Agharta Studio released 1112 episode 01– the first adventure game to be exclusively developed from the ground up for the iPhone. The project came to fruition through the hard work of a small team led by Alexandre Leboucher and got high praise from critics all across the board (including an honorable mention in our The App Store’s Best Adventure). It was stylish, beautifully drawn and had an original storyline and puzzles to back it all up.
Despite the original promise of a sequel in about 4 month’s time, the team decided to take a little detour to make the excellent Rogue Planet, which messed up the schedule somewhat. Fastforward to April 20, 2010 – Alexandre has just informed me that the long awaited sequel has finally been submitted to Apple and graciously allowed me to take a full hands-on go with 1112 Episode 02. And here’s how it looks.
Update: Check out our Exclusive hands-on preview of 1112 Ep. 2!!
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!
