Luca Redwood, the creator of the super-addictive sliding tile game 10,000,000, has been working on a sequel to that game called You Must Build A Boat for the last year, but that’s not the only app he has up his sleeves.

Yesterday, Redwood announced that he had another game in the pipeline. Called Smarter Than You, it’s a modern take on rock, paper, scissors, but with subterfuge and a malevolent A.I. named M.E.T.I.S. mixed in.

The developer of 10000000–pronounced “ten million”–is working on a sequel, and to celebrate that fact, he’s dropped the price on the Mac and iOS versions of the first game (still pronounced the same way).

For $1.50 on Mac or $0.99 on iOS, you can get one of the coolest mashups I’ve played in recent memory. 10000000 is a delightful and engaging mix of endless runner, match-three, and RPG, and it’s super fun to play.

The new game, called You Must Build A Boat, has a pretty interesting story behind it, as well.
