Preorder metroidvania platformer Dandara for Apple TV
Raw Fury and Long Hat House are expected to release their metroidvania-style platform game, Dandara, for iOS and tvOS on Tuesday, February 6th, but you can preorder it now in the App Store for $11.99.
Yes, that’s a $12 game for your Apple TV, but take a quick look and tell me if it doesn’t appear to be worth it.
So, that’s what it looks like and how it will play. Here’s what it’s about:
The world of Salt hangs on the brink of collapse. The citizens, once free spirits, now stand oppressed and isolated. But not all is lost, for out of this aether of fear arises a heroine, a ray of hope. Her name is Dandara.
Welcome to a unique 2D metroidvania platformer full of mystical creatures and boundless exploration. Defy gravity as you jump across floors, walls, and ceilings alike. Discover the mysteries and secrets hidden throughout the world of Salt and its diverse array of characters. Empower Dandara for combat and survival against enemies bent on oppression.
The handcraft pixel art may look retro, but that “directionless world” dynamic sure doesn’t. Keeping track of your orientation and what’s going on around you looks like it’ll be pretty tough on the smaller screen of your iPhone or iPad, so the Apple TV may be the way to go with this one. However, you’ll definitely want a MFi game controller. Although Dandara is built natively for control on a gamepad and touchscreen devices, the Siri Remote is neither.
