DeNA and Scattered Entertainment's Isolani: Producer David Simard on the Interesting Free-to-Play First-Person Shooter Experiment

via Twitter
Isolani, the latest first-person shooter from DeNA and Scattered Entertainment, creators of The Drowning, is a curious game. It tries to bring a story-based FPS into the structure of games like Candy Crush Saga, particularly with recharging lives and a linear progression, as opposed to the mission-based structure of The Drowning. David Simard, a producer on Isolani with Scattered Entertainment, took some time to answer questions about the game.

Posted by Rob Rich on September 20th, 2013

Madfinger Games has recently announced the official release date for their zombie-blasting sequel, Dead Trigger 2, and it's just a little more than a month away.

The zombie-laden shooter sequel will have a "real time" story that is affected by the interaction and performance of all its players. Each update will shuffle locations around and otherwise change up events based around how everybody performs. Neat!

Deus Ex: The Fall Should be a Reason to Love Mobile Gaming, Not Hate It.

Posted by Carter Dotson on June 12th, 2013

When Deus Ex: The Fall was announced as a mobile title, the reaction could be clearly delineated into two camps: mobile gamers intrigued by this deep franchise making its way to mobile, and by 'core' gamers who were outraged that a new Deus Ex game wouldn't be coming to consoles and PC. As if it had to. As if they had a right to it. As if it was somehow a lesser product for being a mobile game.

Make no mistake, mobile gaming is still not fully accepted by gamers. It's a big deal, and those who have had fun with the countless number of creative titles of various scales from all walks of life will know that a fun game is a fun game no matter what platform it's on. But there's still a mindset that mobile gaming is still a lesser form of gaming, and the reaction to Deus Ex: The Fall exposes this ugly truth.

But what is it about this game that makes people so hostile to the very idea of mobile gamers getting a console-quality title on the go? Was it a presumption that since a new Deus Ex title was announced, it had to be for consoles? Still, the disappointment seemed especially amplified in this circumstance. It wasn't just the garden-variety internet trolls who compalin loudly, though: it was high-profile outlets like IGN and even Penny Arcade Report were disappointed. PAR strives for a higher class of gaming coverage, so this still seems uncharacteristic of them.

What IGN's announcement article said before it was changed.

IGN's staffer who wrote the subheadline disparaging mobile, a particular insult to IGN's own mobile coverage, which has been running since back in the days of flip phones. The mobile editor actually changed the headline a day later. Still, whlie they may have a section dedicated to mobile coverage, there's still clearly a mindset that it's something negative.

Despite all the great experiences on mobile devices, in genres both familiar and new, still there is disrespect. is just unfair. The people that make these games are gamers, often long-time ones. I've spoken to many of them. The App Store has provided new opportunities that just weren't there before. I write about mobile games, but I've been a gamer for almost my whole life. Mobile games are legitimate games. That the games are using new interfaces doesn't make them any less so.

The irony is that a game like Deus Ex: The Fall is exactly what will legitimize the platform: this is a deep game that's being released for touchscreen devices. It's not perfect - it uses the flawed dual virtual stick control method along with touchscreen interface elements, but everything about the game sounds like it will live up to what the series has been known for, just in a smaller, more mobile-friendly package. This promises to be a legitimate Deus Ex experience that can be played while waiting for the bus.

And while this may be coming a bit early, mobile gaming getting the 'legitimacy' of controllers and TV gaming is not far away. Apple just approved a controller standard, and there's million of AirPlay-compatible Apple TV devices. On the Android side, where gamepads are already supported, consoles are already making their way out. There's Ouya, GameStick, GamePop, and a million more.

Apple's reference specification for iOS 7 gamepads. Will this be good enough for games like Deus Ex: The Fall for the skeptical? (via Pocket Gamer)

Because if just the presence of Deus Ex on mobile isn't enough, what will be for those who still disrespect mobile?

So for the gamers who still disparage mobile, I say this: give it a chance. Don't be mad that the new Deus Ex is going to be on mobile. Be glad that a new version is coming out, and that a wider audience will be able to experience it. And give mobile gaming a fair shake. It's not all Candy Crush Saga; there are a lot of fun experiences out there in pretty much every genre under the sun. Games are games. Come enjoy these, and let go of your hate!
