Go For Baroque With Sting’s New iPhone Title


Baroque was originally released as a Sega Saturn game. Later, it was ported to the PlayStation. Then, in 2008, Sting ported the dungeon-crawling RPG to the PlayStation 2 and Wii. Now, they’ve converted it into an FPS on the iPhone.


In Sting’s own words (in English):

“PlayStation 2 BAROQUE has evolved into FPS games.
Gun and sword can be used interchangeably.
The Meta-Being please Kill.
Please go to the bottom of the dungeon.”


Right, then! Baroque FPS (that’s the actual title) was released on December 25th on iTunes, and it’s free, so if you have an iPhone or third-gen iPod Touch, you can grab it here. At least now we know a little about what Sting have been up to lately.


A big thanks to Siliconera reader, Jeff, for the tip!
