Soft launch for now:
"The Drowning is now live on iPad (2,3,4, Mini) on the iOS App Store in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines & Malaysia!"

I've been criticizing the game a lot based on what I read about it, but now it's time to play it!

I'm pretty sure this one is worse freemium and gameplay wise but we'll see. I have to admit it's one of the most beautiful iOS game i've ever seen.

I just played this for half an hour and it doesn't look graphically that fantastic and its just another free to play arena style shooter, boring and deleted.

Yeah...but I would rather have a FPS. So far, the only thing I hate about this game is the STUPID controls!!!

Yeah the controls do work but they feel inaccurate and every headshot you make is more due to luck than anything (at least with the pistol). It just doesn't feel natural or skill based...

Then you have the timers every time you craft a weapon, the timer when you want to play, the missions limited to 60 or 120 seconds, the two modes of gameplay that are fairly limited, the random looting that seems to give you the items you need slowly so that you buy more...
It's pretty bad because the game could have been so much more with that Half life 2 like artstyle.

Side note: I think that's Geralt (From the witcher's game) voicing the main hero.
