At midnight tonight, chilly Arctic adventure game Last Inua will stumble into the warm embrace of the iOS App Store.
It's a gorgeous platform game, featuring burly brute Atataaq and his supernatural son Hiko. They've got to travel through the tundra to protect their land from an evil demon bloke named Tonrar.
The puzzles are based around Atataaq and Hiro's complimentary abilities, like ancient Blizzard puzzler The Lost Vikings. The dad can punch through ice and jump over gaps, while Hiro can magic bridges out of thin air and jump through portals.
It's quite a lovely little game with some clever ideas and fantastic hand drawn art. But it's not without its frustrations as you'll see in our PG First Play video, above.
Last Inua is out tonight, and it will set you back £2.49 / $3.99 should you decide to purchase. We'll have a review soon, if you're on the fence.
