This duo of builders from Philadelphia have cranked out among the most attention-grabbing, inventive, and musical video games over the previous decade plus, with plenty of these touchdown on the iPad. Over the past 5 years we haven’t seen an excessive amount of from Cipher Prime, however that’s about to alter come subsequent week as their new venture Lineweight is able to drop on iOS and Android. What the heck is Lineweight? Properly it’s a singular interactive story made up of 5 completely different chapters, every one specializing in a selected human emotion. The story is actually pushed by your actions of the touchscreen as you swipe by means of to see phrases, photos, and sounds all come collectively in a means that solely a developer like Cipher Prime may pull off.

In fact, I say Lineweight is their “new venture” however in actuality it’s been within the works for at the very least a number of years now, nevertheless it wasn’t till only in the near past that Cipher Prime made a concerted effort to complete and launch it with the assistance of writer The Label. A part of what made its growth take so lengthy is that they took a while final 12 months to undergo and replace all of their present iPad video games to make sure they’re nonetheless in good working order, which a few of them undoubtedly weren’t. I extremely counsel trying out their library for those who personal an iPad and haven’t accomplished so beforehand.
