Feel like you could use a bit more dystopian thrillers in your life? Check out Republique, which is the App Store's "Free App of the Week."
For iOS gaming to enter an even deeper dimension, angry bird watchers and candy crushers may have to step to the side and actually let the big boys play. Hours of addicting touch and tap play is fine and dandy, but profundity is obviously lost in the process. Republique, whose origins stem from a successful Kickstarter campaign, goes straight our guts and world weary souls with a totalitarian nightmare, and in the process, offers up a little hope.
Last April, shortly after Double Fine changed the game with their record-breaking Kickstarter campaign, developer Camouflaj flew under the radar with a successful funding of their own, netting over half a million bucks to get République off the ground. Just a few days ago, Camouflaj released a developer video and new screenshots for a February update.
