American McGee’s Spicy Horse Games and DeNA Unlock The Gatefor iPhone, iPad and iPod touch

SHANGHAI and SAN FRANCISCO – December 5, 2013 – Spicy Horse Games, the studio spearheaded by American McGee, and DeNA, a global leader in the mobile games space, announced today that The Gate is now available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

The Gate is a free-to-play mobile game that blends action real-time strategy (RTS) and tactical card-battle elements. Combined with the wonderfully dark storytelling of American McGee (Alice, American McGee’s Grimm) and the distinctly detailed art style from the team behind critically acclaimed games like Akaneiro: Demon Hunters and Crazy Fairies, The Gate presents a demonic universe to explore.

Players command a sinister battalion of disciples to train, upgrade and send into battle against the legions of hell. Demons, gothic battle arenas and gruesome enemies in The Gate are presented through bold 3D graphics while carefully handcrafted collectible cards are brought to life with a striking visual style.

“Our team at Spicy Horse has eagerly been awaiting the moment when The Gate could be opened to the outside world,” said American McGee, studio head of Spicy Horse Games. “The day of release is upon us and we can now see if all this awesome artwork, haunting music and fantastic gameplay were really worth selling our souls to the devil.”

The Gate is available for free from the App Store on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or at
