It was announced yesterday that SQUIDS Wild West, the sequel to French developer The Game Bakers’ critically acclaimed SQUIDS, will hit the App Store June 27, on sale for $0.99.
SQUIDS Wild West is a turn-based RPG in which players must take their band of heroic cephalopods on a journey across the untamed kingdom of Seawood to protect their lands (waters?) from an unspeakable evil. The gameplay calls to mind a combination of Angry Birds and any one of the many turn-based, pick-up-and-play RPGs, will be available on iOS.
According to one of the game’s media alerts, “They’ll [players] help the feisty Calamary Jane save a besieged frontier town, explore native Squid lands and a volatile mine, and start to understand the evil they’re up against – but not without paying a terrible personal price.”
The original SQUIDS recorded more than 1,000,000 downloads, enjoyed wide critical acclaim and became the best selling iOS role playing game in 65 countries. It is available now on the App Store for $1.99.
SQUIDS Wild West is forming up to be a sequel worthy of The Game Bakers’ reputation. Pick it up on sale from the App Store when it releases before the price is raised to $1.99. You can learn more about The Game Bakers on their official website.
