This is literally one of the crazier projects I’ve come across in a long time in gaming. Question: What do you get when you combine Flash Player, Unity3D, Google Maps? A browser based wicked looking Flash game that uses real world maps/locations. Throw an Android phone into the mix and now you have portable F1 3D racing in any real city.
I don’t know what it is today with the job posting articles and perhaps I’m going out on a limb here even posting this simply due to the implications and possible hypothetical reasons this would be included in a job listing with Sony Playstation. A job posting over at Sony Playstation for a Senior Sever Engineer is up and skimming through it I found something interesting.
You may or may not remember about a post we made a little over a month ago about Google Ventures investing in the large iOS game publisher ngmoco. We also stated that any investment made by Google, Google Ventures, Google Pancakes or whatever, regardless of how separate they are, has meaning. Well look at this…ngmoco has an Android job posting!
There isn’t a whole lot in the way of RTS games for Android right now and even out of the ones available, even fewer are actually good. Off the top of my head I can only think of 3 good ones.

OpenFeint has be developing their support for Android for awhile now and we have patiently waited for it to be released. Well the wait is over and OpenFeint is now available for developers of Android games.

Dungeon Defenders demoed on an Android Tegra tablet. This game was built using Unreal Engine 3
Well it seems that the Unreal Engine by Epic is all but officially confirmed to be coming to Android. Ever since GDC 2010 when it was mentioned that support for the iPhone (now iOS in general) was coming to the UDK (Unreal Developers Kit), eventual Android support was left in the air for all to speculate on as no official word at GDC 2010 was ever mention.
