Imaginary Range Combines Comics With Gaming

A new hybrid form of game and comic is set to be released by Square Enix for iOS devices.

Known as Imaginary Range, the app sets out to allow players to flick through comic pages while also playing through a variety of different game sequences. Games look to be mostly mini-game in nature within a full-color comic book and similarly detailed plot.

The project has been overseen by Motomu Toriyama, director of Final Fantasy XIII, with novelist Souki Tsukishima handling the storyline, and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles series artist Toshiyuki Itahana in charge of the artwork. With pedigree that strong Imaginary Range is looking rather interesting indeed.

The comic/game is set in France during an attack by an evil creature known only as Omega and it's down to Cid (yes, Final Fantasy fans, another character called Cid) and Ciela to stop this menance.

Once you complete the story, you can then unlock further comic commentary as well as the ability to play the game separately from the comicbook. If gameplay is anything like the visuals then Imaginary Range could well be something special.

Even better, it's free to download and an universal app so iPad and iPhone/iPod Touch fans alike can enjoy it.
