Imagine Dragons commented “ChAIR has always been on the cutting edge of mobile gaming. Infinity Blade has been massive and we felt the song fit perfectly with the tone and visuals.  We’re pretty big gamers ourselves, so we couldn’t be more excited.”

“At ChAIR, we’re always looking to partner with talented artists who are masters at what they do – whether they be writers, musicians, directors – and to collaborate in a way that adds an even greater level of entertainment to our games,” said Donald Mustard, creative director at ChAIR. “We’ve been huge fans of Imagine Dragons since their early days and are honored to feature this amazing new song in Infinity Blade III.”

Entertainment Weekly called 2013 the “Year of the Dragons” and Billboard noted, “Imagine Dragons are rock’s 2013 live breakout.” Imagine Dragons —comprising Dan Reynolds (vocals), Wayne Sermon (guitar), Ben McKee (bass), Daniel Platzman (drums)—are currently playing to sold-out crowds worldwide.

Infinity Blade III Coming September 18

 on | infinity blade

Donald and Geremy Mustard stepped onto the stage at Apple today and revealed Infinity Blade III, the first game to utilize Apple’s new 64-bit processor. Infinity Blade III will be available on September 18, just in time for the launch of the new iPhone 5S. The demo wowed the audience, revealing a bigger, deeper, and prettier Infinity Blade universe.

Featured in the demo was an epic battle against the Dragon, a recurring enemy who appears throughout your Infinity Blade III adventure. And all of it was real in-game footage. You can never be certain when the Dragon might show up, so you’ll always need to be on your guard. This new nemesis has persistent health, meaning that whatever damage you deliver in a fight will remain the next time you encounter the Dragon. Eventually, you’ll weaken the Dragon enough for a titanic battle to the death!

Also revealed was The Hideout, your new home base where you’ll launch quests, brew potions, fuse gems, and re-forge mastered items.

Of course, there’s a lot more to Infinity Blade III than just a sweet Hideout and a big bad Dragon. Infinity Blade III sees Siris return to action for a final showdown against the Worker of Secrets, who has gathered an army of Deathless Titans and seeks the destruction of the entire world. But Siris won’t have to fight this battle alone. Isa, Siris’s stealthy female companion from Infinity Blade II, is now a playable character for IB3. She offers a different style of fighting – quick and nimble – and comes equipped with a crossbow she uses to damage enemies before leaping into battle.

To help boost your war chest, the single-player campaign has been fused with an upgraded version of Infinity Blade II’s innovative ClashMob feature. All three of the new ClashMob modes are available from the interactive World Map, right alongside the story quests. Daily Trials test your skills and reward you with Gold or Battle Chips, ClashMobs offer week-long group-based challenges, and competitive Aegis Tournaments task you with posting high scores against other players to move on to further stages.

ChAIR’s ambitions for Infinity Blade III are best summed up by Creative Director Donald Mustard. “It’s been amazing to see the continued success of Infinity Blade and to have the ability to tell a complex story across different mediums, using a single device we take wherever we go,” said Mustard. “We’re so proud of Infinity Blade III and feel it not only offers a powerful finale to the series, but also gives mobile gaming another giant push forward.”

Infinity Blade III hits the App Store September 18. The universal app is priced at $6.99 and is compatible with iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5S, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Mini, iPod touch 4, and iPod touch 5.

“Want to move to Utah?”

Hilary GoldsteinThis is how I was approached about joining ChAIR Entertainment. And, really, that’s pretty much the only consideration when given the chance to work at one of the best game developers in the biz. It says something about the people at ChAIR, the games they make, and the way they view game development that without knowing exactly what I’d be doing the only real choice for me was whether or not I was interested in leaving the West Coast for the desert.

It was an easy decision. Utah is beautiful and ChAIR is amazing. I’m a lucky guy. And it turns out that what ChAIR needs is something that fits what I’ve done my entire career in the games industry. For a long time I worked at IGN.com, writing about games, meeting with fans, helping to make cool videos and podcasts. That might seem like a strange fit for a game developer, but it actually makes sense for everyone at ChAIR.

We have a pretty simple goal here at ChAIR: Make awesome games. But with great designers, artists, and programmers busy developing the latest, greatest thing, ChAIR has always wished for the ability to spend more time connecting with our fans. You know, the folks playing those awesome games. That’s where I come in.

Over the next few months, we’ll introduce new ways we can deliver info, respond to requests, receive feedback, and share more of our process of making games. This includes more activity on our existing Twitter and Facebook pages, editorial features that deliver exclusive content, behind-the-scenes looks, videos, and (yes!) even a regular podcast.

Sure, I made a few mistakes during my job interview...
