Austin, TX - November 8, 2012 – Tiger Style Games, developer of the Game of the Year award winner Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor , is proud to announce an update today for the iOS best seller Waking Mars . New to the game is the inclusion of voice acting from full cast and improved character portraits, mirroring the content in the PC version (available today). The update is free to all current owners. Waking Mars is available for $4.99 on the Apple App Store.

Waking Mars is already a thoughtful adventure that mixes action and exploration with hauntingly beautiful art and sound effects,” says David Kalina, co-founder, Tiger Style. “But the addition of full voice acting, and the improved character portraits, really bring the game to life. Existing customers will find a refreshed, more engaging experience, while new customers will be thrilled at the immersive experience. This is our director’s cut.”

It is 2097. Life is discovered on Mars. And it is your mission to make first contact. But when you become trapped by a thunderous cave-in, you must master the mysterious and increasingly complex interconnected ecosystem of more than a dozen unearthly exotic plants and alien creatures to survive.

“There’s a magnificent sense of wonder in discovering all the bizarre creatures the game serves up,” writes Sean Koch, iFanzine Preview, about the iOS version. “This is what gaming bliss is made of, folks!"
