The Trail is the newest game from Peter Molyneux’s studio 22Cans and publisher Kongregate. The latest creation from the developer of Godus is available on iTunes in the Philippines only for now. You can check out the iTunes page here. Players move their avatar down a trail, encountering quirky characters, gathering crafting materials, and trying to build up a fortune on the way to their eventual destination. In the gameplay video from IGV, it looks a bit like The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker’s art style crossed with Fable: the Journey.
The practice of “soft launching” a mobile game in a less active territory is a well-known way for developers to test their applications out with a smaller live audience of players. There’s no word on when The Trail will launch for the rest of the world, but perhaps we’ll see it when Godus is finished?
