ARS: Mark Rein, the vice-president of Epic Games, is having a very good morning. Infinity Blade debuted in the number one slot for highest grossing games in the iTunes App Store, with overwhelmingly positive buzz. The game, developed by Chair, is the first game on iOS devices that uses Epic's Unreal Engine 3. The $5.99 release works both as a standalone game and something of a commercial showing what the engine can do on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
We spoke with Rein earlier this week about iOS devices, Android, and what he learned working with Unreal Engine 3 on phones, tablets, and iPods. Is that a sentence you expected to hear a year ago?
Oh, and we'll also review the game. Let's get started!
