We loved minimalist survival game, Duet, when it was first released last October so we're pretty sure a forthcoming update for it will make it all the sweeter.

This Thursday you can enjoy the Epilogue Update, which promises to include 48 new epilogue stages, a new storyline, new game features, plus 4 brand new musical remixes.

The original release included 50 stages, so this update very nearly doubles the content already there, and it's entirely free.

Duet is available now from the App Store priced at $2.99. The update is set to hit the store this Thursday.

Kumobius' Duet, their artistic take on the minimalist challenge game craze, has a new update out. There's now voice acting, done by Jojo Petrina with composer Tim Shiel, to add to the narrative and atmosphere of the game.

As well, three new challenging stage packs have been added: Revolution, Quickening, and Resilience, along with the final Transcendence stages, which is no longer the conclusion of the game, but part of the B-Side extra levels. As well, the game is easier to complete now.

You can download the newly-updated Duet from the App Store for $2.99.
