[prMac.com] Rhode Island - BrainBlast Games announces the very first update to their iOS game, Curio, now containing fifty percent more material than the original release. The chilling endless-runner from the mad scientists at BrainBlast Games now offers much more to aid players in their quest to free Ron Templeton III from the grasps of his demons, both real and imagined.
And who is more familiar with real and imaginary demons than Tommy Wiseau, writer and director of "The Room?" BrainBlast Games found Mr. Wiseau to be a kindred spirit in line with the unique characteristics of Curio. Players will pick up on subtle tips and tricks if they watch the commercial closely enough, just as one can pick up on the nuanced subtexts of "The Room" after multiple viewings at two in the morning.
The collaboration with Mr. Wiseau is in celebration of the first update to Curio, which is now iPad supported. A whole slew of fun new power-ups are now earnable in game, along with extensive Game Center functionality that allows players to see their friends' scores as they leave them in the dust (and earn even more power-ups). Players can now even save their game by "bookmarking" at any point, but only after earning one. Don't forget to explore the bonus material too. A narrative read by Academy Award nominee Robert Forster serves to complement the game in a very engaging manner.
