Hamlet: The Game coming to iPad, iPhone and Mac

Deins Galanin's independently-developed adventure game based on the greatest play of all time (other than High School Musical: The Musical, of course), Hamlet, caught our eye when it launched on PC earlier this year. And not just because of its preposterously lengthy title -- Hamlet: Or the last game without MMORPG features, shaders and product placement -- but also because of its unique take on Shakespeare's epic tragedy. Soon, you'll be able to see what's rotten in the state of Denmark whilst on the go -- the game's coming to iOS platforms and Mac sometime before the end of January 2011.

We'll let you know when the game gets a firm release date and price. For now, you can check out a trailer after the break to get a glimpse of the game's style ... or, you could just go read the play, dummy. It's pretty much the same thing, except it doesn't have quite so many logic puzzles. Or lightbulb hats. Or sea monsters.
