If you like premium narrative-driven games then you're in luck, because Playdius will be bringing some promising looking titles to iOS very soon.

The publisher known for the rather excellent A Normal Lost Phone and Bury Me, My Love showcased three new games at Gamescom, all of which are slated to come out later this year.


Chroniric XIX

Chroniric XIX appears like it will play similarly to Bury Me, My Love and Lifeline - you chat in real-time to a character named Echo XIX^, who seems to be some sort of time travelling cop that fixes history's problems.

You talk with her as she goes on with her adventures through time and help her out as she attempts to save the future of humanity. The choices that you make will shape the story and lead to one of three different endings.

And we won't have to wait long, it comes out next month on September 27th for £2.99/$2.99 on iOS.

If you want something with more traditional gameplay then perhaps Spitkiss will be more your speed. The game tells an unconventional love story through platforming mechanics. You send messages of love to your other half by precisely aiming a little ball, bouncing and sliding it off surfaces.

The game will have some really interesting themes of polyamory, genderfluidity and non-binary identities, and from the trailer, it's going to have a groovy art style and funky music. Personally, I really can't wait to play this, it looks like all of my jams rolled into one nice package.

If you're interested, Spitkiss it will be out on October 11th £1.99/$1.99 on the App Store.

Stay was released earlier this year on PC and console but in November it'll be making the jump to iOS. It's a fascinating adventure puzzle game that engages you at all times, quite literally.

You have to help a man named Quinn escape a locked room and get to safety. However, the game plays out in real-time, so if you leave Quinn on his own to fend for himself for too long there may be disastrous consequences. It really emphasise your input and interaction, a man's life is at your fingertips after all.

The game has a load of content with 24 chapters in total and 7 different ending to discover, so it seems you'll get a lot of bang for your buck.

You can play the tense thriller when it's out for iOS for £4.99/$4.99 on November 8th.
