Oceanhorn, the acclaimed action-adventure game developed by Cornfox & Bros., is set to receive a huge update. As announced by the developer in a Touch Arcade forum, the upcoming update is dubbed "Game of the Year Edition," apparently in celebration of the fact that Oceanhorn was hailed by Apple as one of the best indie games of 2013. (We here at AppAdvice also included it in our Top 10 Paid iPhone Apps Of 2013.) Oceanhorn's Game of the Year Edition update promises "the best possible Oceanhorn experience yet" with new features, including instances of fishing and raining, as evidenced by the screenshots below. It will come as a free 2.0 update to existing players of Oceanhorn. Cornfox & Bros. said in a blog post late last May:
Carefully now, don't let it get away! We have been developing this update for a while now! It is something that could be considered as a DLC on console games, but as a token of gratitude for you, loyal Oceanhorn players, we will continue our No-IAP policy and release our DLC and content pack free of charge!Oceanhorn is available in the App Store for $8.99. It's optimized for iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, fifth-generation iPod touch, iPad 2, third-generation iPad, fourth-generation iPad, iPad Air, iPad mini, and iPad mini with Retina display. We'll let you know as soon as Oceanhorn's Game of the Year Edition is released. Oceanhorn's last major update arrived last March, including iCloud support, Korean and Russian localizations, and some bug fixes.
