Independent games publisher Versus Evil in partnership with Breadcrumbs Interactive announced that its darkly funny action role-playing game Yaga is now available on Apple Arcade℠ .
Yaga tells the story of Ivan, a one-handed blacksmith with incredibly bad luck, who must take on the impossible tasks given to him by the tzar. All the while the mysterious witch, Baba Yaga, watches over Ivan’s fate as he Smashes and clobbers a variety of nefarious monsters and legends inspired by Slavic folk tales.
