Runeblade is a Cool Looking Adventure Game Coming Exclusively to the Apple Watch

Posted by Rob Rich on April 12th, 2015

Just in case you missed all the hubub, Everywear Games (a studio created specifically for smartwatch development) has announced the upcoming release of Runeblade - a "fantasy adventure" that's been designed from the ground up for the Apple Watch.

Loot, upgradable weapons, monster smashing; it's all there and it's looking pretty good. It's also been designed with bite-sized play sessions in mind, which should work well on a device you'll most likely be tossing quick glances at rather than staring at a screen for extended periods of time.

Runeblade will be available as a free download later this month, and once the Apple Watch launches we can expect plenty more content down the line.
