Marvel Comics announced at this year's SD Comic Con (in an interview with Marvel.com) that they're going to be releasing an upcoming game called Contest of Champions. The actual game development is being done by Kabam, who have released other games like The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth, Fast & Furious 6: The Game, Castle Age HD, and more.
If I were to mention animated movies such as The Incredibles, Toy Story, Brave, Ratatouille and Monsters University, what is the first thing that would come to mind? It would probably be Disney-Pixar and the wonderful stories and animation that they have created. If you are a fan of any of those movies you are in luck. Steel Wool Games is a new studio created by five artists that have been working in the animation industry for many years. With the aid of Ripstone Publishing, Steel Wool Games will release their first project, Flyhunter Origins this summer. It will be available for Android and Tegra powered devices in addition to other platforms. The game is prominently displayed as one to play on the new Nvidia Shield tablet.
The team at VooFoo Studios with the help of Ripstone Games their publisher were kind enough to give Droid Gamers an exclusive interview. They are releasing a new environment for their game Pure Chess that will coincide with the availability of the new Nvidia Shield Tablet tomorrow.
Just a little over a year ago we reported on an official Firefly game that would be heading to Android soon called Firefly Online which was slated for release this Summer. As you can tell from the game's name, this will be an online multiplayer title but it isn't necessarily an MMORPG in the traditional sense of running around, completing quests, leveling up and collecting gear.
DIY projects are always cool because you not only get to check out what other people do when feeling particularly creative at any given time, but generally also get to learn how it is done and possibly even do it yourself. Technically we don't really get to learn how to make this custom arcade cabinet for 4-players that also happens to be powered by an Ouya game console from Burd Bros Custom Arcade. But with the right parts and a little planning, you could take on trying to build one of these yourself.
Google Play on occasion promotes apps and games of different stripes for different reasons. Sometimes they are seasonal or have a purpose, like the summer sale that is currently happening, others are arbitrary. Currently, there's a promotion going on for games that can be played offline.
The Walking Dead: No Man's Land is an upcoming mobile game for Android that will be released alongside the mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead Season 5. Set in the TV continuity of The Walking Dead, as opposed to TellTale's game which takes place in the comic book universe, there wasn't really much revealed in the cinematic trailer for the game other than that there will be zombies. Go figure.
Two days before its intended launch, Modern Combat 5 was leaked to gamers everywhere via torrent. Gameloft is understandably livid. In a perhaps futile effort to stem the tide of users illegally acquiring the game because of the lack of an official launch, Gameloft rushed to push the game’s release ahead by one day.
Chess is one of the more popular strategy games that have stood the test of time. It is an amusing sight to see two individuals huddled over a board as the chess pieces are slowly pulled off, one at a time, and set aside as a testament to each individual’s skill and prowess. Pure Chess by developer VooFoo Studios and publisher Ripstone have made it possible to make it even easier to take your game of chess with you wherever you go and you don’t have to worry about losing any of the pieces.
Square Enix, the company that makes all the Final Fantasy games we know and love, has put a few of their highly priced (and prized, if you ask me) games on sale. Normally, these games come in around $15 or $16 dollars, two of their offerings are now being sold for 50% off of their normal price.
