We’ve quipped Jason Rohrer’s low-res memento mori Passage here a few times, and last week saw the surprise release of the game to the App Store.

While the PC version of the game remains freely available, as with PuzzleQuest, there’s something nice about having the game literally on-hand to introduce it to new people.

Still best left mostly undescribed so as not to over-explain the punchline (though you can cheat via Rohrer’s artist’s statement), there’s good reason Passage has become the de facto art-game champion: its circumspect metaphor is perfectly extended by its interaction and the experimentation of repeat playthroughs.
