Back in May we reported that Bungie, the game studio behind the legendary Halo series of games on Xbox 360, was working on their first game for iOS. Since that time Bungie has announced a new venture, Bungie Aerospace, that is aimed at helping indie developers make incredible games. According to the studio:
Bungie Aerospace was created to help small, independent developers launch their mobile and social games. Bungie Aerospace gives studios the creative freedom and the resources they need, like access to the Bungie.net platform and an audience with the incredible Bungie community, to launch entertainment experiences into orbit and to satisfy their own thirst for world domination.
This evening the studio announced the release of their first iOS game, Crimson Steam Pirates, which is available for free on the App Store. The game is only available for iPad and while the first 8 missions are free, the remainder can be unlocked via in-app purchase for $1.99. From the iTunes description: expand full story
