Koi - Journey of a Fish Sure Looks Pretty, Doesn't it?

Posted by Rob Rich on July 13th, 2015

Koi - Journey of a Fish is a beautiful looking game that calls to mind Flower after about five seconds of watching it in action. And I'm totally okay with that.

Vector 2 is Officially a Thing and it's Coming Later This Year

Posted by Rob Rich on June 30th, 2015

Vector is a pretty cool parkour-driven runner that's gotten a pretty decent following since it first came out - although personally I think more people could stand to show it some love. Anyway, Nekki has announced that a sequel isofficially on its way and will be coming to the App Store later this year.

Posted by Rob Rich on June 30th, 2015

It looks like NuOxygen is bringing the truck-transforming racer Trucksform (get it?) to iOS in a couple of weeks. Although really it's more of an auto-driver than a racer. But still, transforming trucks!

E3 2015 - Turn-Based MOBA Relics of Gods is Poised to Crush the Western Mobile Market

Posted by Rob LeFebvre on June 19th, 2015

Here’s a fun little game that's coming to iOS and Android sometime this year, called Relics of Gods. Based on characters from a board/card game from China, this upcoming mobile game is an interesting mix of MOBA-style heroes and turn-based battle mechanics, so it will be interesting to see what kind of traction developer Seasun will get on it here in the west.

E3 2015 - Dawn of Titans Brings Massive Battles and Thousands of Enemies to the Palm of Your Hand

Posted by Rob LeFebvre on June 19th, 2015

The quick demo I got of Dawn of Titans at Los Angeles’ Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) on Wednesday showed me a massive battle that my presenter (CEO of Natural Motion, Torsten Reil) controlled with swipes and taps on the iPad. When he brought in the titular Titan to smash its way through the gathering enemy forces, it reminded me quite a bit of the recent Game of Thrones episode where the giant Wildling wades into battle, smashing foes out of the way with powerful swipes of a massive club. How fun is that going to be? So fun, that’s how fun.

These 3Queens Mean Business with the Upcoming Match-3, Creeping with the Crudashians

Posted by Rob LeFebvre on June 18th, 2015

Game developers Maureen Coffey-Edri, Cara Florence, and Nicole Young are here at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) this year to let people know about their new mobile game, Creeping with the Crudashians.

It’s a free-to-play match-three with in-app purchases that let you literally buy fame (the in-game currency).

“But,” co-founder Nicole Young reminded me, “you can’t buy talent!”

Creeping with the Crudashians is mostly a whip-smart parody that takes on fame, fashion, and the reality-show successes of the Kardashian clan. But it’s also a game that shows every other female entrepreneur out there that it is, in fact, possible to be successful in a male-dominated industry like gaming.

The all-female team met via Think Ideally, a mentorship and incubation company that Florence and Young co-founded to help women make their way in industries like this one. Coffey-Edri joined the team as they all formed 3 Queens Media, the development company that just made Creeping with the Crudashians.

“If I didn’t have this support system,” said Coffey-Edri, “I would have crashed and burned.” All three developers agreed that the power of networking is what makes them successful in the gaming industry, one that serves half the population but has seriously low representation in the development community.

The team put this entire concept together in less than a year, including development, marketing, and the extremely engaging expo booth here at E3. All three women were there, handing out free invites to download the game (due in July), as well as working a photo booth where attendees could get their picture taken with a stand up cut-out of the game’s heroine, Miss Crudashian. You could also grab a tank top, T-shirt, or tote bag and get it rubber stamped with the game’s logo. Utter parody of the crud we all buy, and we line up in droves at E3 for.

E3 2015 - Deckbound Brings Ownership, Permanence, and Multi-Game Access to a New CCG System

Posted by Rob LeFebvre on June 18th, 2015

Imagine a digital card game where you can purchase cards, level them up in a typical collectible card game (or CCG - think Hearthstone or Magic), and then keep the leveled-up cards as your own personal items.

Now imagine that you can take that same card from the collectible card game and use it as an asset in a dungeon crawler, leveling it up there, and then being able to take it back to the original game with the new level and experience points.

E3 2015 - We Go Hands-On with Madfinger's Unkilled, Which is Looking Great By the Way

Posted by Rob LeFebvre on June 17th, 2015

Czech Republic-based Madfinger Games (Dead Trigger 2, Shadowgun) is back with another zombie survival first-person shooter that will have you gunning down the undead with a new, prettier Unity5-build engine that will run on your iOS (or Android) devices. That title is Unkilled, and it’s gorgeous, intense, and super accessible - everything you’d expect from the folks that brought you bleeding-edge shooters Dead Trigger 2 and Shadowgun.

The company aims to have the free-to-play Unkilled out this summer, and I got a chance to play it a bit this week at the Electronic Entertainment Exp (E3) at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
