FutureGames plans to start a new mobile game development education late 2014(*). and will therefore be present at the mobile development conference Mobile Future – www.mobilefuture.se, November 7 2013.
Mobile Future – The event combines two conferences, a trade show coupled with two meetups during the day, and the prestigious Swedish Mobile Awards in the evening. Mobile Future brings together the whole mobile community: innovative mobile companies, large and small, operators, large and small corporate users, big brands, manufacturers and of course the developer community.
By combining two conferences and a tradeshow under one roof, and in just one day, Mobile Future covers all corners of what our mobile future entails, from development to product launch, the possibilities it brings to companies and how you can best grasp these.
In cooperation with DreamStage and Atrium Ljungberg FutureGames will be showcasing a mobile Augmented Reality demo along with the FutureGames produced mobile games Unmechanical and When Imps Fly. On top of that will eQidz showcase their upcoming mobile game. A lighthearted visual adventure that cultivates emotional growth, aimed at children. The game is set for release in January 2014.
When Imps Fly
When Imps Fly is a turn based casual game developed by FutureGames students, with Swedish developer Fatshark acting as supervisors. With tons of humour and character, this game lets you battle it out with friends in the battle to become the wealthiest imp lord of them all! Utilizing physics based gameplay, players build towers to defend their treasure while shooting imp minions at their opponents in attempts to claim theirs.
When the project was finished the game managed to capture the hearts of the jury consisting of developers from Fatshark and EA DICE, and was given the highest honors in all categories.
Unmechanical is an award-winning 2.5D side-scroller for PC and iOS which combines tricky puzzle solving, alluring exploration, and an engrossing atmosphere. It focuses on accessible controls that makes it easy to pick up and play, and challenges you with a wide range of challenging puzzles.
The game had humble beginnings as a student project at FutureGames but has since been released as commercial game through the collaboration of Talawa Games and Teotl Studios. The game is available for PC and iOS, and was featured world-wide by Apple.
