Many things are happening at Lunar Giant, one of these things has been the restructuring of the Touch of Death project. A few months back, we made the decision to switch to developing for iOS devices, based on some wonderful marketing data provided by Gamasutra.
For those of you who feared that our vision of funky kung fu was dead, worry no longer. We’re back in full time production mode on Touch of Death, and are really beginning to like what we see. Check out this teaser cell of Master Wong’s first punch (pardon my hasty cropping job)!
