  1. Haunting adventure game Fran Bow makes its way to App Store


    It seems that, lately, when we talk adventure games we’re talking about Telltale and their line of games which border on interactive môviês. Late last week (everything happens when you’re on Please or Register to view links) we had a new adventure game from a new developer hit the App Store, Fran Bow, which tells a surreal tale of a young girl, murdered parents, mental disorder, and a cat. Also, it’s nothing like Telltale. Simogo, maybe, but definitely not Telltale.

    Fran Bow was released last year for PC/Mac on Please or Register to view links and Please or Register to view links. It tells the tale of a young girl who witnessed her parent’s murder and is sent to an asylum for disturbed children. Unfortunately, her cat isn’t allowed at the asylum so she escapes to look for Mr. Midnight and find her aunt, who is her last living relative. The game has a bit of an Alice in Wonderland meets Pan’s Labyrinth vibe as Fran must self medicate to enter another world in which reality is, well, unreal. The game is beautifully drawn in 2D with encounters that look ripped from the cards of Please or Register to view links.

    Fran Bow is broken up into five chapters but instead of releasing one app and offering the remaining apps as DLC, the developer Please or Register to view links decided to offer each chapter as a separate app. Thus, you can find them as follows:

    Each chapter will run you $2.

    Check out the trailer after the break. It’s sufficiently creepy that you’ll want to check it out.
