Veteran game designer American McGee has just released his cross-platform turn-based shooter Crazy Fairies onto the web via Kongregate, Facebook and the game’s official website. Soon, however, mobile gamers will be able to battle it out in Crazy Fairies as the game is slated for release onto iOS and Android later this year.
For those of you unfamiliar with who American McGee is, he has been designing games for a fair amount of time. He has worked on titles such as Doom II, Quake, and Quake II while at id Software. He then ended up at Electronic Arts where he helped make Alice and once that was done he left EA to form his own company called The Mauretania Import Export Company. Now his latest release, Crazy Fairies, has gone live online and will soon be on mobile as well.
Crazy Fairies is a cross-platform turn-based shooter where players battle it out on various maps, taking turns shooting at each other with their somewhat deranged looking fairy tale characters. The first player to kill off their opponents characters wins. As you win fights you will be able to earn rewards and upgrade your characters to make them more powerful. If you want to get ahead of the competition faster, Crazy Fairies will have optional in-game purchases for power-ups, boosters and even skills.
One rather interesting feature that will be arriving with the game is that it will have a live auction house in the game where players can buy/sell items and gear. You won’t be able to make real money selling items on the auction house like in Diablo III as it is more of a strictly virtual auction house which you find in a lot of MMO games. Players will also have housing which they can customize to their liking.
If you don’t want to wait to play Crazy Fairies on your Android device, you can hop on over to Facebook, Kongregate or the game’s official website and get a head start on your mobile brethren. No exact date has been revealed yet, only that it will be out later this year. Since it will contain in-game purchases, Crazy Fairies will more than likely be available for download for free when it launches.
