2016 just keeps getting better with the release of Tim Fowers' fantastic word game, Paperback. It's just landed on the App Store for iOS Universal and should be coming to Android soon.

Let's look at the iTunes blurb:

Fowers Games wrote:
You are an author trying to finish kitschy paperback novels. Complete Westerns, Science Fiction, Romance or even a Crime Noir. Live the dream — and maybe pay the bills.

Word-building meets deck-building in the unique game Paperback. Players start with a deck of letter cards and wild cards. This is like their own bag of ‘scrabble’ tiles. With each hand of cards you make a word and score it. This score is how much money you have to purchase more cards for your deck. Collect cool letters with abilities, such as drawing more cards or double word score. Buy Novel cards to gain ‘fame’ points to win the game!

Features:
• Hotseat play with up to 4 players
• 3 levels of AI opponents
• Tons of cool card powers
• Classic pulp novel artwork
• Win with wordsmithing or power combos - up to you!

Keep your eye out for updates - online multiplayer coming soon.


I've been playing the game for the past week or so and it's a ton of fun, and I can see it becoming my go to mobile game. It's perfect for a quick fix of only a couple minutes as you strain to come up with a new word that uses "EN", "ES" and "ET" as well as the letter "R". Still can't think of one.

We'll let you know when it hits for Android as well. Have fun!

Sentinels of the Multiverse Season 2 Arrives on iOS
For much of the digital world the second season of content for Sentinels of the Multiverse arrived last week. For those of us who prefer to battle evil on our iDevices, Season 2 was a wait-and-see proposition. The waiting is over as, yesterday, Handelabra Games announced that the iOS version of Season 2 has gone live.

You can sign up right now for the Season 2 Pass which will get you a load of content starting later this year. It will also get you a special Season 2 mini-pack which you can download immediately. The mini-pack includes:

Handelabra wrote:
Setback, the unluckiest hero who brings “a change from better to worse” from Vengeance
Chokepoint, the ferro-kineticist villain from Mini-Pack 4
The Temple of Zhu Long, a dark and mysterious environment from Villains of the Multiverse


The Season 2 pass is also discounted, but only for today! If you want to snag it for $5 less you need to pick it up ASAP. Note that the discount is only for the iOS version. The other platforms had their discount last week when Season 2 was officially released.

- Sentinels of the Multiverse for iOS Universal, $7
- Sentinels of the Multiverse for Android, $7
- Sentinels of the Multiverse for Kindle, $7
- Sentinels of the Multiverse for PC/Mac, $10



Paperback Coming to Digital Next Week
Late last night an email filtered into my inbox from none other than Tim Fowers of Wok Star fame. It was nothing major, just letting me know that they're hoping to launch the digital port of his incredible deck-building word game, Paperback on iOS next week!



He also sent along a build of the game and I've been playing it pretty much constantly ever since. Thanks, Tim, I didn't need to catch any Z's last night.

The game currently features solo play vs. 3 levels of AI or pass-and-play multiplayer. Luckily, the AI is pretty damn great, however, and I've lost several games to the mid-level AI (and maybe one or two to the dumb AI). If you were hoping for online multiplayer, Tim has said that they're open for adding a whole bunch of new features depending on what the fans want. In other words, let him know in the comments.

Oh, and it's for iOS Universal and there's also an Android build underway. Whether or not the Android build launches next week is shrouded in mystery, but if it doesn't it can't be too far down the road.

We'll let you know if/when it lands on the App Store.



Red7 Coming to Digital
We've known about this one for awhile, but wanted to keep it quiet until we got the go ahead to announce it. Considering that Chris Cieslik from Asmadi Games is talking about it here on BGG, I think it's safe if we spill the beans.

Red7 is coming to digital.

Wow, that was a lot less grandiose than I'd hoped for. Hold on a sec...

Red7 is coming to digital!

There.

We don't know much other than it's coming to both iOS and Android...and, that's about it. As usual, we'll try to dig a bit and pass along whatever we uncover.



Sorcery! 4 Releases
Normally, the release of a new game from inkle Studios would be a major announcement and, yet, here it is way down the page. That's not to denigrate the fine folks at inkle, nor their fantastic interactive fiction series based on the Sorcery! series. It's really just acknowledgement that you probably already know this simply from Brad's awesome streams of the series that he's been doing for the past couple of weeks.

Anyway, Sorcery! Part 4 wraps up the story that launched inkle into our consciousness back in 2013 and you can carry a character all the way from that first installment through the last, bringing all your contacts, items, and clues along with you. It's really the only way to play the series. By itself, each book is a good piece of interactive fiction. Strung together, it's an epic piece of entertainment.

This version has you finally tackling the fortress of Mampang and confronting the vile Archmage to claim the Crown of Command. It's a mammoth book made even more mammoth by the way saves are implemented while inside the fortress. Don't understand? You will when you're chatting up monks in the monastery or wandering the Inner College for the eighth time...

Anyway, if you've played through the first three, snagging this is a no-brainer. The game's on sale right at launch as well, so no reason to delay.

- Sorcery! Part 4 for iOS Universal, $5
- Sorcery! Part 4 for Android, $5
- Sorcery! Part 4 for Kindle, $5
- Sorcery! Part 4 for PC/Mac, $6






App Updates



We don't normally do things like this, but there were a few updates I thought you should know about, so I'm lumping them all together. Don't let this weird format frighten you.


Mansions of Madness
As we all know, Mansions of Madness: Second Edition from Fantasy Flight Games is a board game that requires an app. I've gotten a few plays in and it's a fun way to play MoM, much better than the clunky version we received a few years ago.

Yesterday the app for the game was updated to include content from the expansions:

Fantasy Flight Games wrote:
What's New in Version 1.1.0
• Added Recurring Nightmares and Suppressed Memories Figure & Tile collections.
• New scenarios available for Figure & Tile collections and 1st edition products.
• Minor updates to Collection Manager


- Mansions of Madness for iOS Universal, free
- Mansions of Madness for Android, free
- Mansions of Madness for Kindle, free
- Mansions of Madness for PC/Mac, free



Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy
Small update for the iOS version of Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy landed this week which brings it up to date with the recently released Android and Steam version and allows for cross-platform play as well as a few other tweaks.

What's New in Version 2.0
- Cross-platform multiplayer - play agains PC, Mac and Android players!
- Rewritten online architecture - use your social media and/or Game Center account to play online
- Last round replay for online games


- Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy for iPad, $7
- Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy for Android, $7
- Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy for PC/Mac, $13.50



Warlock of Firetop Mountain
Yesterday, Neil Rennison the mad genius behind Tin Man Games announced via Twitter that a new update was coming to their phenomenal work of interactive fiction, The Warlock of Firetop Mountain (2016).



The update will bring new characters and more, making an already awesome game even more awesome-er (take that, grammar!). Now the only thing we need is a version for tablets...

- Warlock of Firetop Mountain for PC/Mac, $20

Sentinels of the Multiverse Season 2 Pass Available Today
It's official: I've now received more emails about Season 2 of Sentinels of the Multiverse arriving today than I've recieved for any other game. (Yes, even that one) Thanks, everyone! I'm on the case, I just wasn't in town the last couple days and have been unable to plant myself in front of my laptop.

Today, Handelabra Games has announced that Season 2 passes are available in both the PC/Mac and Android version of Sentinels. The iOS version is having the usual Apple review issues but it should be coming soon.

The Season 2 Pass will get you access to all the upcoming Season 2 content starting with Sentinels of the Multiverse: Vengeance which is coming later this year. Actually, that's the first major expansion in Season 2. If you buy the Season 2 Pass now you'll immediately get a mini-expansion which contains the following:

Handelabra wrote:
-Setback, the unluckiest hero who brings “a change from better to worse” from Vengeance
-Chokepoint, the ferro-kineticist villain from Mini-Pack 4
-The Temple of Zhu Long, a dark and mysterious environment from Villains of the Multiverse


Apart from this mini-expansion, the rest of Season 2 covers the following:

- Sentinels of the Multiverse: Vengeance
- Sentinels of the Multiverse: Villains of the Multiverse
- Mini-Pack 4 (2 more heroes and 1 villain)
- Void Guard (Mini-Pack 5)
- Sentinels of the Multiverse: OblivAeon

The normal price of the Season 2 pass is $25, but if you buy in on mobile in the next 48 hours, you can get it for $5 off. That sale will be in effect for iOS for 48 hours after is lands on the App Store as well.

- Sentinels of the Multiverse for iOS Universal, $7
- Sentinels of the Multiverse for Android, $7
- Sentinels of the Multiverse for Kindle, $7
- Sentinels of the Multiverse for PC/Mac, $10





Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy Arrives on Steam (and Android?)
When Big Daddy's Creations released the digital version of Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy back in 2013 it signaled a change in what could be done with digital board games. Sure, we'd had some great ones like Carcassonne (iOS) and Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer released before this, but making a complex, 4X title work on an iPad was quite the achievement. Three years later, it's made the jump to the big screen by landing on Steam for PC/Mac. It's also made it's way to Android tablets by coming to Google Play.

Eclipse on Steam is currently 10% off, so you can snag it for $13 and change.

- Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy for iPad, $7
- Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy for Android, $7
- Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy for PC/Mac, $13.50



Lew Pulsipher's Doomstar Releases. Want a Free Copy?
As we mentioned earlier this week, Stratego-like board game, Lew Pulsipher's Doomstar, has arrived on Steam today. Thanks to the developer, Large Visible Machine, we have some free codes to hand out for the game.

I have 10 keys in my pocket and I'll hand them out to the first ten commenters who mention Doomstar in their comment. If you're a winner, look for your code to come via Geekmail in the next day or two.

For everyone else, Doomstar is available on Steam and should be coming to the App Store in the next month or two. It's also 25% off right now!

- Lew Pulsiphier's Doomstar for PC/Mac, $7.50

Yesterday, Inkle announced that Sorcery! Part 4 will be delayed to Thursday, 9/22. They cite wanting to avoid going toe to toe with the iOS 10 release (wise choice). We've got review copies in house and will review/stream next week.

However, if you've yet to play the Inkle games, you're in luck. All three Sorcery games are on sale on iTunes and Google Play for $0.99 each.

Here they are:
Sorcery! 1 - Android, iOS

Sorcery! 2 - Android, iOS

Sorcery! 3 - Android, iOS



But, the Stream Continues!

We wandered the wastes and talked to a tree. We also died over and over in a pit, which was...disappointing

The stream starts tonight at 10pm EDT. We'll be playing Sorcery! part 3.

We will be streaming at BoardGameGeekTV on Twitch. Come join us!


Here’s the full schedule:

- Tuesday, 9/13 - Sorcery! 3
- Thursday, 9/15 - Sorcery! 3
- Wednesday, 9/21 - Sorcery! 4
- Thursday, 9/22 - Sorcery! 4

Come watch and help us try not to die. We’ll be asking the chat for advice on choices, etc, so be sure to join in.
