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.
One game we are looking forward to launching is from Phosphor Games called The Dark Meadow. Built using Unreal Engine 3, this is a horror action game that reminds me of a sort of Silent Hill type of title but for Android instead of PC/console.
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.
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.
Back during CES 2012 we got some hands-on time with Sega's upcoming sports title called Virtua Tennis Challenge which will be coming to Android. During GDC 2012 and our visit with Sega, we managed to get an update so to when we can expect this game to arrive on Google Play.
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.
We had a chance to swing by and meet up with Sega at GDC 2012 to check out what they had on display and for us to play with. One of the big questions we had was whether or not the mobile version of the Total War PC series was actually coming to Android. Well, we now know it is.
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.
