Highborn

Trailer released of iPhone strategy game, and an update too.

LAS VEGAS, NV June 9, 2010 Jet Set Games, TM led by the creators of the original Command & Conquer games, today released an official trailer for Highborn, TM the critically and commercially successful strategy game for the iPhone and iPod Touch. In addition, the developer also submitted a game update to Apple that addresses minor gameplay issues and adds enhancements to the game.

The official trailer is now available on the companys official YouTube page at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmK8qoHi-6I, and offers viewers a look at gameplay footage and features from both types of gameplay in Highborn: tactical map movement and 3D combat.

The game update, currently pending Apple approval, fixes a few minor gameplay issues in advance of a larger update the company is currently working on. The update submitted this week includes the following improvements:

Jet Set Games President Rade Stojsavljevic and Lead Designer Joseph B. Hewitt, IV, discuss these updates and give a sneak peak at future updates in the first Highborn video podcast, which can be found on the Jet Set Games YouTube page: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJE7cwbUALE.

Were thankful for the amazing response Highborn has received from the media and the community, and we are dedicated to continuously improving and enhancing the game for them, said Rade Stojsavljevic, president of Jet Set Games. In the very near future, we plan on addressing more significant requests, including adding an undo move button in some form, and expanding multiplayer beyond Facebook.

Highborn is currently available on Apples iTunes App Store ( http://itunes.com/app/Highborn) for a limited-time, introductory price of $2.99.

Highborn is casual, turn-based strategy game with a twist, developed by a team of industry veterans, many of who created the original Command & Conquer products, including Rade Stojsavljevic, Adam Isgreen, Joseph B. Hewitt, IV, and Westwood Studios Co-Founder Brett W. Sperry.

In Highborn, players are treated to two strategy games that combine to offer an intelligent, tactical experience without the frenetic play of a traditional RTS. Players move forces around an overhead map to secure spells and combat support, then dive into 3D combat to deploy those advantages against an unsuspecting enemy. All the fun and fighting is set against an irreverent tale, filled with wacky heroes, witty dialogue and wild assumptions.

Features:

Jet Set Games is planning to release additional single- and multi-player gameplay for Highborn in the form of in-app downloadable content. The company is also finalizing an iPad-specific version of Highborn for release later this summer, pricing to be announced.
