'Sonic the Hedgehog' boss releases epic iPhone app
Wednesday 06 July 2011
Yuji Naka, lead programmer on
Sonic the Hedgehog and former boss of Sonic Team, has a new iPhone app ready for exploration, in the style of
Prope Discoverer, named after Naka's current studio Prope, is built on the same tech that powered Epic Games's Epic Citadel.
Epic, responsible for the Xbox series Gears of War, went on to release the action game Infinity Blade, an app that has earned them in the region of $10 million USD.
Prope's take on Epic Citadel's crisp medieval scenes instead takes the form of a mystery game, asking players to find hidden cards while they explore the environment.
It's an app that requires a fair bit of grunt behind it, and as such needs an iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 1 or 2, or an iPod 3 or 4.
Prope Discoverer is initially priced at $2.99 / €2.39 / £1.79 and available from itunes.apple.com/app/id445581754.
