Don't worry, chances are it will come out on iPhone too. We're just focusing on the iPad version first

The gameplay involves tapping groups of like skulls to smash them. Bosses (much larger skulls) have a circular health meter and receive 'proximity damage' for matches that touch them.

The game is set in a physics engine, gravity is centered in the middle of a circle and new skulls come in from the sides, clunking into place against the other skulls into a roughly circular shape (that turns and reacts to other skulls that hit it).

There are quite a few elements that add depth to the game: power-ups, player health, leveling, a disturbing story. Our focus is on making something beautiful and fun to play...but creepy.

It's going to be one in a series of games we're producing that are kind of like little 'pulp novellas': bite sized, polished and addictive.

Cool. Just wanted some assurance there was substance behind the style.

An iPad version of Galactic Keep would...make a lot of sense.
