Republique's Ryan Payton: iOS Gamers Deserve Better

Chris Buffa (Modojo): It takes guts to leave what some would call a sure thing and step into potentially hazardous waters, which is exactly what former Halo 4 Creative Director Ryan Payton did the moment he exited Microsoft Game Studios and 343 Industries in September 2011 to found Camouflaj, a development studio that just revealed Republique, a mysterious adventure game for Apple's iPad. While gorgeous and potentially game changing, there's no guarantee this title will succeed in a highly competitive iOS market that's dominated by more casual-friendly fare. What's more, numerous PC and console players refuse to acknowledge tablets as hardcore gaming devices, largely because of the lack of physical buttons and analog sticks.
