Ustwo Games, the studio that created the popular Monument Valley and Assemble With Care games for iPhones and iPads, today unveiled a new upcoming title, "Alba: a Wildlife Adventure."


Little has been revealed about the game at this time, but it will feature titular character and activist Alba, with players able to experience a "Mediterranean Summer filled with friendship, family and nature" as Alba visits her grandparents to explore wildlife with her friend Ines.

Based on a description of the game, Alba sees an animal in danger and decides to do something about it, forming a wildlife league to save the animals of the island.

Alba: a Wildlife Adventure is set to be released this winter and it will be available for iOS, macOS, tvOS, PCs, and consoles.

As someone who uses video games to teach biology and zoology I am so excited to see how this game might fit in my curriculum.

Will it be universal purchase app?

Do any apps support ‘universal purchase’ (buy once on iOS or Mac and you have it for both platforms)?

Platform exclusives are a good way to show off a specific feature that your competition doesn't have (Nintendo does this often). They are also a way of getting folks to buy your platform (God of War, The Last of Us, Uncharted).
Totally understand that and I don't disagree from a business perspective (in terms of apple) but think consumer wise and possibly dev wise (more platforms could reach to broader audience )its better not. Don't like it when it happens on other platforms either but it makes business sense. Now if they help fund development and have limited time exclusivity I'd be more cool with that.
