It’s been four months since the world got a peek at Pascal’s Wager at Apple’s biggest event last year. Now the game is finally out on iOS.

The Dark Souls-like mobile RPG was demonstrated at Apple’s iPhone 11 launch event in September to showcase the GPU power of the phone’s new A13 chipset. Pascal’s Wager boasts a gaming experience that’s “extremely close to console games.”

Yang Yang, founder of TipsWorks, told us in an earlier interview that the studio chose to ignore the pay-to-win business model that’s popular among mobile games. He wanted to make a game that “wouldn’t let true gamers down,” he said. Yang put the money he saved for a kidney transplant into developing the game.

Pascal’s Wager, priced at US$6.99 on Apple’s App Store, is now available for download globally. TipsWorks says the Android version will be released in the second quarter.
