Elder Sign: Omens, winner of an Editor’s Choice award here at 148Apps, just received a major update last week with new additions to the game as well as options and bug fixes.

This new update makes an entirely new campaign, the Cthulhu campaign, available through an in-app purchase. The new campaign contains over 30 new adventures, ten new monsters, and four new investigators. An unlockable bonus investigator is also available. The new map in the campaign includes new gameplay features for Elder Sign: Omens. Also, available as an in-app purchase, new Ancient Ones are for sale.

In addition to the in-app purchasable campaign, a free, Yig campaign has been released with this update. Another unlockable investigator is available (different from the one with the paid campaign).

A few options have been added like skipping transitions, audio fading, and a low resolution option (likely for older iOS devices struggling to run the higher-end graphics).

Elder Sign: Omens is based on a dice game where investigators work to keep powerful Ancient Ones at bay, preventing ancient evil from invading our world through the museum’s exhibits.

From Nascar to F1, people of all sorts of tastes and backgrounds can have an affinity for cars. Just look at the size of the crowds an auto show can bring in. Pyrolia is trying to bring that experience home for car lovers everywhere with ROAD inc, their new iPad app.

The app boasts an impressive amount of content featuring dozens of videos and engine sounds, hundreds of photos and pages of car descriptions and 3,000 archival documents like ads and press releases. Most notably though is the effort that went into the 3D renders of classic cars like the 1970 Porsche 917 K or the Rolls Royce Phantom II. Pyrolia spent over a million dollars working with automotive auction houses, factories and restoration specialists in order to bring these cars to life using the software behind Avatar and The Lord of The Rings.

Costing $9.99, ROAD inc may sound a bit pricey. However, considering the alleged amount of detail, one can see the argument that, as with a nice car, it’s a premium price for a premium product.
