Flying Fortress is a upcoming iOS roleplaying game, set in an airship and designed specifically with character narrative, exploration, and strategic battles in mind. The game’s “streamlined” gameplay style allows players to engage with its story at their own pace, only requiring you to use one hand to play. The game comes from Los Angeles-based development studio BoxCat.
It features over 200 cutscenes, 108 collectable characters that will all see a different fate at the hand of your decisions, and 50 craft-able airships that can be customized for best battle performance. Finally, the game sets itself apart from the rest of the iOS gaming world herd as it is completely offline and playable anywhere.
Flying Fortress is expected to land sometime in Q3 of this year on iOS.

BoxCat Games has made their rather awesome RPG, Nameless: The Hackers, free for a limited time.
This weird, wacky, charming, and unexpectedly clever game involves a rag-tag group of hackers getting swept up in a massive conspiracy. It features some surprisingly recognizable role playing mechanics that have been disguised as hacking techniques (i.e. the heal spell is now “Data Recovery,” etc), as well as a few unique mechanics such as an Infocard system that replaces traditional leveling. In other words you should download this Editor’s Choice pick right away while it’s still free. You’ve got from 10/15 to 10/20, so you’d better hurry!

In our review, Rob Rich mentioned, “I don’t think I can sing Nameless: The Hackers praises enough. It’s a clever and contemporary RPG that effortlessly pulls off ‘familiar’ and ‘unconventional’ simultaneously.”
Boxcat has also released the entire soundtrack for free should anyone find themselves really enjoying the sounds that are offered in the game. You can download the soundtrack by going to the follow link – http://boxcat.bandcamp.com/
