The Devolver Digital team is ultra jazzed to be apart of the Apple Arcade launch with four of our dev studio friends and their eclectic mix of games for the new platform! It’s been insanely hard for us to keep these projects under-wraps but now that we can share them with the world we’re absolutely bursting at the seams for you all to get your hands (and thumbs) on them all.
Below is a quick rundown of some amazing games from longtime friends like Dodge Roll and Free Lives to some new solo devs in Jeon Jaewoo and Luis Jimenez! All were designed with care for Apple Arcade and will debut on the service with updates and new content to come!

EXIT THE GUNGEON
by Dodge Roll & SingleCore
Exit the Gungeon is a bullet hell dungeon climber immediately following the adventures of the misfit ‘Gungeoneers’ and their journey for personal absolution in Enter the Gungeon. The Gungeon has become a paradox and is collapsing! Armed with an ever-changing weapon, an insatiable need to loot, and the trusty dodge roll, each of our heroes must ascend and escape via their own unique route of increasingly perilous elevators. Battle against the last and most bitter of the Gundead at a frantic pace, slowing down just long enough to chat with some familiar faces… and a few new ones. Shifting rooms, enemies, bosses, bizarre weapons and items all combine to ensure that no two attempts to Exit the Gungeon are the same.
Also, you can wear hats. Everybody loves hats, and spin-offs, which this game is... of Enter the Gungeon.
CRICKET THROUGH THE AGES
by Free Lives
Swing bats and throw balls through the intertwined histories of humankind and cricket in this one button, physics-driven game. Over a thousand years ago the human race teetered on the edge of extinction. Our ancestors were helpless against the mighty behemoths of the land. And then, salvation…the game of cricket was invented! Go alone, or take a friend, on a journey through the rich and exquisitely accurate history of cricket in Cricket Through the Ages.
Bleak Sword is a dark fantasy action game tasking players to struggle across compact, cursed diorama battlefields. Through nine tense chapters, heroes must lift the curse of the legendary Bleak Sword by striking down all manner of creatures in every forest, swamp, castle, and dungeon on their journey. Invoke powerful magic, uncover helpful items, and level up your character to upgrade your stats before facing down menacing guardians. Once the curse has been lifted the challenging Arena Mode and thirty unlockable achievements await even the most accomplished warrior.
Bleak Sword is designed to be able to play it easily with elegant controls allowing heroes to roll, parry, attack and counter-attack using basic movements on gamepads and touch controls. Scored by award-winning composer Jim Guthrie with sound by famed designer Joonas Turner.
