Horn announced for iOS, will prove consoles are DEAD


9:00 AM on 06.27.2012



The headline are the developer's words, not mine. Well, they're not even really the developer's words, but they've gotten at least three angry people reading, and that's the point. What Phosphor Games' Chip Sineni did say, however, is that mobile gaming will take the console's place.

"Mobile and tablet systems are quickly becoming to main way people play games, replacing consoles," he said in the announcement video for Horn. "The problem is that gamers aren’t finding the game they like to play on mobile. We saw a real lack of action-adventure games on mobile, so we created Horn."

Now that you've gotten your rage out of the way, let's talk about Horn. It was announced last night, and it's made by the guys who developed the excellent mobile game Dark Meadow, and are (hopefully) still working on Awakened. Having proven themselves before, I have high hopes for Horn. It certainly looks good. 

Of course, Chip's words may compel the dedicated console fans to hate mobile gaming even more, but whatever. I am certainly looking forward to Horn.
