It seems like just yesterday indie development studio Camouflaj successfully Kickstarted their freshmen iOS release, République. Since then, not only has the title successfully released its first two chapters, but yesterday it was elevated to the status of Apple’s “Free App of the Week.”
Now, it is worth noting that the actual free portion of the game only consists of the base download, which includes the first chapter, but it should be a great way to give everyone an initial free taste. Each of the additional chapters will be available for $4.99, or a discounted season pass total of $14.99.
Republique Episode 2: Metamorphosis is now rolling out now for Season Pass holders, and will be available on May 1 for all users. This chapter of the surveillance-themed stealth-adventure game has players controlling protagonist Hope as she seeks out the librarian of her prison in order to help her in her quest to be free.
Not only is there new story content, with a new guard type, and new abilities, but also three puzzles from the creator of Blueprint 3D are in Episode 2. As well, there's improved performance on iPhone 4, iPad mini, and iPad 2, a new 3D map, and the next chapter of the documentary is available. The episode will cost $4.99 as an in-app purchase to unlock, with the Season Pass available for $14.99.
Hot on the heels of a storytelling award from IMGA for its stealth thriller, Republique, Developer Camouflaj is celebrating by temporarily slashing the price of the well-received game down to $2.99 for a limited time.
Camouflaj designer Ryan Payton appreciates the accolades. “We set a high bar for ourselves with the first episode of République, so it feels great to see the public’s positive response, especially in foreign markets. This is a great start for the franchise and our little independent studio,” says Payton. “In the interim between EP1 and EP2, we are lowering the price of Republique for a short period to give more players a chance to experience the pilot episode. We hope they’ll find it as engaging and innovative as so many critics and players already have.”
We had an opportunity to take a look at the Kickstarter-backed project late last year.
République will remain on sale on the App Store until March 27.
