Exclusive: A sneek peek at Luc Bernard’s next iPhone game

Luc Bernard’s first iPhone game, Mechos Wars, is doing pretty well with the critics and the kids. I haven’t played it myself, but I hear from very reputable sources that the game is a solid example of the turn-based military strategy genre. That gives me even more hope for Steam Pirates (temporary name), Luc’s next iPhone game, currently in pre-production.

The game is planned to be an RPG, set on the high seas, featuring painted backgrounds and hand-drawn animations. That’s definitely good news, but even better is this reveal of the game’s pirate-skeleton-spider-lookin’ ladies; one part Monkey Island, one part Castlevania‘s Arachine, and altogether awesome. 

Maybe I’m just a sucker for pre-production art, but this game is looking nice so far. For more, hit the gallery, and stay tuned to Destructoid for all the latest updates on games by Luc Bernard (and other people).
