Crimson: Steam Pirates is available at midnight in your time zone on 9/1. For now, it's iPad only.
You can grab the first eight voyages and two multiplayer pass and play scenarios for free (which is a fine price). If you like what you see, you can pick up eight more voyages for $1.99 (which is also a fine price).
The game was developed by a small team in Redmond, WA. You can check out their website, and a whole mess of Crimson back story at the link below.
The World of Crimson
The team is led by Jordan Weisman, who you might know through his other games, Crimson: Skies, MechWarrior, and Shadowrun, or through his work in the "Why So Serious?" Batman campaign, NIN's Year Zero, or I Love Bees for Halo 2.
If you have any questions, we have an official FAQ up and running. We'll also drop back in when we can to answer any questions we haven't already covered.
Have fun! It's been really great to work with Harebrained and we hope you enjoy their game!
