Stockholm, Sweden – 2010-07-27
Ever wondered what iPhone gamers really want?
Cracking gameplay? Well naturally.
Lush graphics and special effects? But of course.
Innovative ideas? Sure!
Obviously all of these things are essential to any great game, but to stand out as truly exceptional you need to package them up in such a way that really captures the zeitgeist.
And that’s precisely what Fabrication Games have done with their latest release, which they are confidently predicting is ‘the most wanted iPhone game ever’.
Taking newly released data from The Game Trail, a unique video-based app-discovery app which allows gamers to watch games in action before they buy, Fabrication games have been able to see exactly what it was that most players were searching for. Based on the most popular search strings Fabrication Games came up with an idea for a game.
The resulting title; Free Zombie Hero – Kill Angry War Ninja is now available on the App Store for free.
President of Fabrication Games, Tommy Palm, explains, “I have always been curious to know what games are most sought after and thanks to The Game Trail we now have that data available and we’ve made use of it.”
Obviously Fabrication haven’t been able to combine all of the search terms, both for practical and licensing issues, as Tommy continues to detail. “Basically we saw a challenge in making a game on the request of the search strings. We would have loved to make a Free Mario Zombie game but I am not convinced Nintendo would have appreciated that so much. So we removed all the trademark words from our new game. That way we still got the world’s most sought after game per definition. The entire team was thrilled by the idea and we squeezed in this production on our spare time in parallel to our normal projects.”
