Back in the beginning of GDC 2012 last week, we mentioned that ARM was on site showing off some games and demos featuring their new Mali chip. We later met back up with ARM to talk about the Mali chip and try out some of the demos while figuring out which ones would actually be released as games.
InnoGames have been around for quite awhile having developed and published a lot of browser-based MMORTS games with their flagship title being Tribal Wars. We got a chance to sit down with Dennis Heinert, Head of Public Relations at InnoGames during GDC 2012 where we learned that InnoGames is planning on bringing all of their in-house developed MMO titles to Android.
EA will be bringing some of that Mass Effect love to Android soon in a game called Mass Effect Infiltrator. Based on the Mass Effect lore, this will be a third-person shooter with some pretty impressive graphics. This will be a full featured game with voice over acting and the works.
Another game we got to get some serious face time with was Sega’s upcoming Sonic 4 Episode II title for quad-core Android devices. Aside from being able to get a good idea of how the game looks and plays, there is also a rumored release date floating around right now as well although no official confirmation of this date has been given.
We had plenty of hands-on time with a lot of games during GDC 2012 which just ended on Friday and one game on display over at the nVidia booth was the MMOFPS we have been talking about for quite some time that is being developed by Bridea called Renaissance THD.
We met up with ngmoco at GDC 2012 where we talked about the upcoming improvements heading to DragonCraft and Skyfall, which we will be covering in a separate article. The other topic of conversation was a new game that will be making its way to Android soon called Dreamtopia.
Spacetime Studios were on hand at GDC 2012 showing off their upcoming MMORPG for Android called Dark Legends. Let it be known right now this is not the Twilight type of vampire in this game with the whole sparkly drama filled emotional wreck the movies are. Instead, this game contains more of the True Blood type of vampire.
All the chip manufacturers are out in full force this GDC and even though the show floor doesn’t open till tomorrow, a couple of companies had a few demos rolling at tables during the current Smartphone and Tablet Gaming Summit at GDC 2012.
