Thanks to the annual App Store freeze that took place over the holidays last week, a new App of the Week missed its normal Thursday announcement date. As the shutdown lifts, however, the App Store team has now named physics platformer Icycle: On Thin Ice from Damp Gnat as this week's App of the Week, temporarily making the app free for all users.
Touted for its visuals and general "bizarreness" in various App Store reviews, the game tasks players with guiding its nude protagonist, Dennis, across eighty levels of various landscapes ranging from frozen tundras to "bizarre creations plucked from Dennis' subconscious."
From its jaw-dropping scenery to bizarre creations plucked from Dennis’s sub-conscious, award-winning studio Damp Gnat draws inspiration from art, film, and comedy to deliver an experience that is beautiful, sad, hilarious, compelling, and fun all at once.
