We have been covering the development and upcoming release for Fedeen Games’ upcoming MMORPG called Forsaken World Mobile. However, we have never been able to give any sort of an exact release date, only that it would be coming soon. We did, however, mention that we figured it would be arriving this month and it looks like we were right as Fedeen Games has announced a July 23rd release date.
Back in March of this year we reported on Sony announcing that their Playstation Mobile services would be closing their doors forever in July. Well it is now July and tomorrow marks the day where you won’t be able to buy any more games off of Playstatioin Mobile. Then in September 2015, in-app purchases and the ability to re-download purchased games will also cease, officially closing Playstation Mobile for good.
First-Order Games is a one-man indie game development studio founded by John Sahas who previously spend the past 12 years with Neversoft. He was a designed / programmer on four different Tony Hawk titles as well as 6 Guitar Hero titles. He then went back to the Activision studio family, after a short stint working with different indie studios, to take a role as Multiplayer Designer at Infinity Ward for 2 Call of Duty games. Needless to say, he has some experience. Well he has now branched off to make his own game development studio and now his first release, called Swipey Rogue, will be heading our way soon.
Hools Run is a new runner that has arrived onto Google Play and features a bit of a unique theme. Hools we are guessing is short for Hooligans and you’ll be taking control of one at a football stadium. You will be running from the police for some reason and you obviously don’t want to get caught. It’s more of a hobby running from the police for Hooligans.
About a week ago we reported on Blizzard’s Hearthstone and the fact that the company had begun teasing a rather big announcement that would be happening on July 22nd, 2015. The teasing of this announcement came in the form of a scroll that was sent to PCGamer which also played the Argent Tournament theme song when the box was initially opened.
The big day is almost upon us and even though it is the middle of the Summer, it almost really does feel like Black Friday in a lot of ways. The anticipation of possibly scoring a couple of awesome deals tomorrow, but having to wait a whole day to really check out everything, is a lot like Black Friday. However, when Amazon’s Prime Day starts tomorrow, Amazon will be pumping out more deals than we would see on the actual Black Friday.
Big Shiny Games today announced that they will be releasing their upcoming Sci-Fi themed game Retro Assault onto Android later this Summer. For those of you not familiar with this game, Retro Assault is a top-down action-shooter where players assume control of a futuristic state-of-the-art Starfighter Chassis which also happens to be equipped with interchangeable Combat Wing weapons platforms.
Hardline Studios has announces what will be their second release onto Android soon with a game called metaBall. Hardline Studios is the company behind the rather enjoyable space shooter Alpha Wave, but their new game is a lot different from that particular genre. After sitting and thinking of a proper way to describe this game, the best way to do it is with how the developer describes it: Marble Madness meets Q*Bert in a Tron universe.
