Liber Primus Games has announced they will be releasing the next chapter of their action-adventure story, Narborion Saga Book II: The God of Orcs in March.

The story, written by Sylvia Finali and Dr Tom Pollak (former editor-in-chief of Dragon magazine), will remain in the fantasy genre but will use a whole new game engine called SagaScribe. This will let readers have more customizable options and features. Players will also be able to scan an image of their table top figurine into the game and have more options for character creation, spell crafting and arena fight training.

There’s a lot to look forward to, really. If you haven’t checked out the original Narborion Saga, you can download it for free on the App Store.

Clockwork Adventure Game Syberia is Now Available in One Complete Package

Posted by on December 5th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Fans of Kate Walker, clockwork automatons, or adventure games in general take note: Syberia is now available on the App Store – in full.

The game follows Kate Walker, a lawyer from New York, who must travel to across Europe in search of an inventor named Hans. Of course, what was supposed to be a simple matter of getting a few signatures and overseeing the sale of an old factory will turn out to be far more complicated (and interesting) than that.

Whereas before you could only download the game in separate parts, now you can get your hands on this classic in a single app. So all that surreal, almost Myst-like adventure is yours for the taking. And you can finally keep it all in once place.

This new, full version of Syberia is available now as a universal download for $6.99.

One of the more exciting gaming developments that has come about thanks to the rise of tablets and the iPad in particular is the resurgence of the adventure game. Touchscreen gaming lends itself perfectly to this kind of experience, and various indie developers are embracing its potential.

One such development studio is that of Belfast-based Billy Goat Entertainment. The studio is currently in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign for their upcoming title, Her Majesty’s Spiffing, which is a quirky space-based adventure. While the campaign is focused on rewarding PC owning pledgers, there are plans for an iOS release. We took the time to learn more from founder, William Barr.


148Apps: How did Billy Goat Entertainment come about? And why the quirky name?
William Barr (WB): The company came about out of necessity seeing as I carelessly decided to leave a job I wasn’t fond of (despite the meagre yet reliable monthly paychecks) and no one else would hire me! As for the name, I’m very much a child of the 90s, a time when every company needed to have some form of anthropomorphic cartoon animal mascot. I’m also incredibly conceited – Billy is of course a common abbreviation of William. These two factors contributed to the choice of name and the fact that we have a Cashmere Goat as our mascot!
