From one of the minds that brought you Async Corp. and Glow Artisan, I give you Hexagonal Rochambeau, a local multiplayer iPad game.

Hexagonal Rochambeau is a real time "area control" strategy game. It takes place on a hexagonal board with rock, paper, and scissor units.
I believe that multi touch devices are screaming for a real time strategy game. The iPad has lowered the price of multitouch screens to a consumer level. This allowed a single person, like myself, the ability to explore this idea. My experimentations have lead me to to deconstruct, as a chef would in the culinary arts, what is at the heart of gameplay.
In Rochambeau the units have been boiled down to their skeletal parts, the rock, paper and scissor. The hexagonal board keeps the play area simple and easy to understand. By dragging a unit on the screen anyone can understand how to play. Still present however, are the tactics and spirit of a true strategy game. This is the beauty of marrying the multi touch screen to the real time strategy genre, with a bit of distillation. I truly believe that the pairing of the touch interface will complement the real time strategy game to create a masterpiece. Let us see if my execution gives it justice.
