Infinity Blade Dethrones Angry Birds
Epic's Unreal-powered Infinity Blade has only just hit the App Store this week, yet it's already managed to dethrone Angry Birds from the top of the App Store.
Creative director Donald Mustard told Eurogamer earlier this year, "I love playing Angry Birds and Indie Dev Story but I also love playing something like Infinity Blade. I'm looking for something like that as a gamer. I hope I'm not alone in that."
Mustard also noted that the App Store is a volatile and unpredictable market, a sentiment echoed by countless developers--successful or otherwise. "It's such a different marketplace. It really is like the Wild West of gaming – I don't know that anybody has that figured out right now."
