For anyone who’s familiar with the popular board game Carcassonne, Christmas came early to App Store this year. Last week the long-awaited iPad version of the hit game from The Coding Monkeys was released as a universal download. Based on a strategic board game originally from Europe, Carcassonne for iPhone has been taking the App Store by storm since it’s arrival in June. Voted as one of the platform’s best games of 2010 by Macworld Magazine, the Iconfactory is pleased to have been able to contribute to Carcassonne in the form of interface and character design.
In order to help celebrate Carcassonne’s arrival on the iPad, artist Anthony Piraino has released an all-new icon set you’re sure to love – Carcassonne Meeple & People. Based on the game tokens and AI players from Carcassonne, this icon collection is available today as Mac or Windows desktop icons as well as a handy, searchable Candybar iContainer. We hope you enjoy having a tiny slice of Carcassonne on your desktop and urge you to check out the game this holiday season. Remember, the table is your friend!
