Apple Watch-Exclusive Adventure Game Revealed

WayForward Technologies, the developer behind Aliens: Infestation, DuckTales Remastered, and Silent Hill: Book of Memories, has announced its next game–a new adventure game for the Apple Watch.

The studio is describing the game–Watch Quest!: Heroes of Time–as the “first adventure game made exclusively for Apple Watch.” WayForward says Watch Quest! Is a “new kind of game experience.” That’s for sure.

Watch Quest! isn’t exactly exclusive to Apple Watch, however, as it will play across both iPhone and the new wearable device.

“Gameplay revolves around choosing a hero and equipping them on the iPhone, and then guiding the Hero via the Apple Watch as he or she travels lands, battles monsters, solves puzzles, and searches for treasures,” WayForward explains. “Players are invited to play passively by selecting longer, easier quests and outfitting the hero up front–or by taking on more difficult quests which require foraging for items as you go.”

Watch Quest will be available as a free download with one training quest, while players will also be able to buy extra characters and missions with real-world money. The game is set to launch on April 24, the same day that the Apple Watch arrives worldwide.
