Apple Arcade shows no signs of slowing down, with five new games “coming soon” to the popular subscription service. They include The Survivalists, The Collage Atlas, Wonderbox, South of the Circle, and All of You. Most notable is The Survivalists, a game created by the team behind Overcooked! All You Can Eat and the upcoming Worms Rumble.
The news was posted to the official Apple Arcade Twitter account, but no launch dates were listed either in the tweet or on Apple Arcade’s home page. Some of these titles are releasing outside of Apple Arcade by the end of November, so expect to see them on the service before December.
Already slated for a release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 9, porting the title over to Apple Arcade is a boon for the service. You’ll set foot on a mysterious, procedurally generated island as you battle dangerous enemies and unravel the mysteries of the strange land. You can even team up with three other players to overcome the difficulties that lie ahead, and are even able to recruit the local monkey population to build, battle, or chop down trees to aid in your progress. The developer said that the so-called Mimic System allows for a variety of actions to be performed by your acrobatic friends, and enlisting their help is key to your survival.
The Collage Atlas
There’s a lot to unravel in The Collage Atlas, a game that is depicted with beautiful, hand drawn graphics. Oddly enough, the game began its life as a picture book before making the jump to a more interactive medium. It’s a fairly laidback experience, however, allowing you to move at your own pace and enjoy the wonderful scenery as it passes by. Beyond that, not much is known, although we’re excited to explore its artistic world when it finally releases.
At first glance it looks a bit like the original Oceanhorn. Bright, cartoony graphics bring the slightly blocky world to life, and our main character is even dressed in a blue outfit similar to the one worn by the Hero in Oceanhorn. But unlike Oceanhorn, Wonderbox has you slowly piecing together a tiny diamora as you explore its minature world. Each level has its own set of challenges to overcome – including puzzles, enemies, and mazes – and you can even craft your own Wonderbox levels to send to your friends.
South of the Circle
Coming from the BAFTA Award-winning dev, State of Play, South of the Circle is an emotional narrative that follows Peter as he struggles to survive in Antarctica during the Cold War. It will discuss heavy themes such as resolving past conflicts, moving forward through adversity, and confronting your darkest memories. Peter will struggle with both his physical surroundings and his mental demons as you work your way through the game – one that is sure to stay with you long after the credits roll.
All of You
A puzzle game for all ages, All of You sees the player assisting a chicken as she searches for her lost chicks. You’ll be able to pause time on different portions of the level, letting you create a safe path for her to travel and locate her babies. Beyond that, well, not much is known. Expect to hear more in the coming weeks leading up to its launch.
