We've been following the saga of Wayward Souls - Rocketcat Games' upcoming RPG dungeon crawler - for a while now. Its a very promising game from a developer with a great track record, having already graced the App Store with Punch Quest, the Hook Champ series and Mage Gauntlet.
Today Rocketcat announced; "Looks like Wayward Souls will be out on the 17th. That's not 100% confirmed, but it's pretty likely at this point."
So barring any unforeseen circumstances, it's time to sharpen our swords and prepare our A-game, as it looks like we've not yet crawled through our last dungeon.
Also announced was an interesting pricing plan that aims to reward early buyers and avoid IAPs. The game will sell for $5 initially, and with each content update after that, the price will increase by $1. Initially there are three major updates planned, meaning an eventual $8 price tag for latecomers.
Updates one, two and three will see the addition of a huge fourth area, an endless mode and a seventh character respectively. The seventh character will be playable after winning with all other characters.
So it sounds like there is a lot to look forward to and a good reason to jump in early as Rocketcat experiments with the game's App Store pricing (usually the cost goes goes down with time, instead of up).
