First-Ever D&D Board Game Hits iPad; Developed by Playdeck

lords of waterdeepPlaydek and Wizards of the Coast have announced the release of the highly-anticipated  Lords of Waterdeep on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Available on the App Store, Lords of Waterdeep is a stunning digital adaptation of the award-winning Dungeons & Dragons strategic board game.

In Lords of Waterdeep, two to five players assume the role of masked Lords controlling the intriguing city of Waterdeep, one of the most beautiful yet dangerous port cities in the Forgotten Realms. The Lords’ identity remains secret during gameplay so strengths won’t be visible to opponents. The masked Lords vie to purchase buildings and control the city by recruiting agents, whom they send on quests to gain power. Often employing shady dealings in the underbelly of the city and back alleys, the Lords, through their agents, negotiate and outwit each other to rule the city, its treasures and resources.

A strategic board game with worker placement mechanics, Lords of Waterdeep unfurls in eight rounds of action. At the end, the player with the most victory points wins. Agents must complete quests to score victory points and can expand the city by purchasing new buildings that open up new actions and either hinder or help the other lords by playing Intrigue cards to enact carefully laid plans.

Cards and characters will be familiar to those who know and love the tabletop board game. The characters and stories will immediately intrigue those new to the game. Three different types of quests will keep players trying to outguess each other.

With Lords of Waterdeep for iOS, players can now instantly engage in D&D action and are able to play against the computer, friends or the online community through Playdek’s real-time and asynchronous game servers. The digital game will support between two to five players in pass-and-play and asynchronous online multiplayer, as well as play-versus-computer, giving players the chance to play whenever they want.

Other features of Lords of Waterdeep for mobile include:

  • Universal game application – buy once and play on all your devices
  • Selectable online game clocks
  • Rematch button for online and offline matches
  • “Next Game” button takes you to your next online game
  • Matchmaking
  • Player ratings
  • Multiple player offline profiles (for households)
  • Select your faction to act for you in the town of Waterdeep
  • Game tutorial
  • Rule book and card gallery to review game text and effects
  • Options for music and SFX, animation speed, and confirmation pop-ups
  • Retina support
  • iPhone/iPod 5 screen support

 

G.I. Joe: Battleground Launches Shipwreck’d PvP Event

GIJOE_app store iconDeNA’s G.I. Joe: Battleground action card battle mobile game based on the original G.I. Joe universe is releasing a new in-game player vs. player (PvP) event today called Shipwreck’d that runs through August 29, 2013.

After the Joes successfully decrypted the Cobra data obtained by Snake Eyes, they learned a frightening truth. Cobra-La is still alive, active, and seething with anger and hatred for G.I. Joe. In response to this grave threat, Joe teams from around the world have scrambled to launch various assaults against known Cobra intel centers to obtain information on the whereabouts of Cobra-La. One such perilous mission involves Shipwreck and a team of commandos finding their way onto a Cobra submarine. A close quarter firefight breaks out on the sub that threatens to blow up the nuclear powered titan with all combatants still on board.

Players can take up a side as Joe or Cobra and fight against other Squad Leaders. Will you side with Cobra to protect Cobra-La’s nefarious plans, or will you go with the Joes to unravel and put an end Cobra-La’s comeback?

Two New Stan Lee Narrated Marvel Apps from Disney Publishing

Disney Publishing Worldwide Releases Two New Marvel Avengers Storybook Apps in Celebration of the Upcoming Marvel Studios Blockbuster Film

“Avengers Origins: Hulk” and “Avengers Origins: Assemble!” – Narrated by Comic Book Legend Stan Lee – now available for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch

WHITE PLAINS, NYApril 12, 2011 – Disney Publishing Worldwide (DPW) announced today the launch of two new storybook app titles based on the Marvel Origins series, which were inspired by the original Marvel comics written by Stan Lee.  Only one month prior to the much anticipated theatrical release of “Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Avengers Origins: Hulk” and “Avengers Origins: Assemble!” bring the anticipation for the movie to mobile devices now, allowing fans to read along with Stan Lee as they relive the epic origins of the Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor.

“Because Tony Stark and Bruce Banner are two of my favorite characters, it’s exciting to see their stories as Super Heroes come to life in digital storybook form just a few weeks before the release of ‘Marvel’s The Avengers’ movie,” said Stan Lee.  “They are a great prologue for kids, taking them back to the beginning—revealing how Earth’s Mightiest Heroes assembled to fight foes so powerful that no single Super Hero could defeat them.”

“Avengers Origins: Hulk” is a multifaceted read-along app allowing children ages 4-10 to follow Lee’s story narration of Dr. Bruce Banner’s epic transformation into the Incredible Hulk.  With detailed artwork and cutting-edge animations, comic fans can enjoy this multi-dimensional app through a variety of interactive touch-screen activities, including roaring, transforming into the Hulk, and testing the Hulk’s strength by breaking through walls, stopping tanks, and more.

The “Avengers Origins: Assemble!” app serves as the perfect introduction to exciting Super Heroes like Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, and more.  Children can read along with Lee, match heroic accessories with each Super Hero, use Thor’s powers and the Hulk’s strength to stop the Atlanteans and Namor, and melt the ice to free Captain America from his frozen prison!

“Avengers Origins: Hulk” and “Avengers Origins: Assemble!” apps are available for $1.99 each from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore.  “The Amazing Spider-Man: An Origin Story” is available on the App Store for $3.99 in English, Spanish, Italian, German, French, and Danish.

Cut the Rope Digital Comic Series Now Available for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

ZeptoLab and Ape Entertainment Partner to Tell the Mysterious Story of Om Nom

SAN FRANCISCO – December 20, 2011 – Shazaam! Om Nom™, the loveable character from the award winning mobile game Cut the Rope™, is now a comic book hero! Millions of fans that play Cut the Rope have fallen in love with the adorable green monster. Now, through the new comic series released today in the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, they will start to learn more about Om Nom and his fascination for candy!

According to Misha Lyalin, CEO of ZeptoLab, creators of the award winning Cut the Rope game, “The comic book is just the first step in broadening the reach of the Cut the Rope brand. Plush toys, apparel and accessories were recently released in the US. We are expanding all over the world and new items will be rolling out over the next several months.  On the licensing and merchandising side, we see tremendous opportunities to bring Om Nom into homes around the world.”

Based on one of the most downloaded mobile games of all-time, the Cut the Rope No. 1 digital comic series begins in a quaint little town where opportunity sometimes knocks, but in thirteen-year-old Evan Coulton’s case, opportunity leaves a plain and uninteresting box on his doorstep. Of course, the surprise contents inside are anything but plain and uninteresting.

Before Evan realizes what’s going on, both his kitchen and his life have been turned upside down by a little green monster with an endless appetite for sweets. Om Nom’s sugar levels leave him either high on energy or lazily collecting more candy, as he and Evan discover just how much they have in common. Fans can follow the adventures of Evan and Om Nom as trouble unfolds in one of the most anticipated new comic series today.

ZeptoLab developed the digital comic series in conjunction with Ape Entertainment, who has a proven track record with comic book apps as demonstrated by the company’s success with the hugely popular Pocket God digital comic series.

“With millions of fans around the world playing Cut the Rope, the new comic series provides the first glimpse into the story of Om Nom,” said Semyon Voinov co-founder, ZeptoLab.

“Ape Entertainment immediately shared our vision for extending the brand into the comic world. The result of their efforts is one of the most interesting examples of how to bring a video game to a new medium.”

“The Cut the Rope digital comic series is much more than a pages to pixels app – it’s an experience that taps into the power of iOS and unleashes the world of Om Nom to fans across the globe,” said David Hedgecock, CEO of Ape Entertainment. “We believe this is the exact direction that will satiate comic book fans’ appetite in the digital age, as well as offer a reason to continue coming back to the App Store and local comic shops.”

The first three issues of the on-going series are currently available on the iTunes App Store at www.apple.com/appstore/ – the first issue is free and additional issues are available for $1.99 through in-app purchase.

New Spider-Man app feat. Stan Lee from Disney Publishing

Official Press Release

Stan Lee Narrates New Spider-Man Storybook App from Disney Publishing’s Marvel Origins Series

“The Amazing Spider-Man: An Origin Story” app introduces young readers to legendary Super Hero on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y— Disney Publishing Worldwide (DPW) has launched today a new, interactive storybook app for young readers featuring the voice of comic book legend and Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee. “The Amazing Spider-Man: An Origin Story” app provides a new way for DPW’s hundreds of thousands of readers worldwide to experience comic stories. Complementing the original book from the Marvel Origins storybook series, the app retells the story of Peter Parker’s transition from teen to Super Hero with music, activities, and more.

“The Amazing Spider-Man app is a terrific first introduction to the Spider-Man story for young readers,” said Stan Lee. “It’s exciting to be a part of the creation of this authentic, interactive reading experience for children.”

“The Amazing Spider-Man: An Origin Story” storybook app features interactive, action-packed artwork, sound effects, music, and story-based activities that allow readers to test their strength, swing through the city, and use web-shooters to stop burglars – all with the touch of a finger. Lee lends his voice and bravado to the app in “Read to Me” mode for an extra “POW!”, along with three other reading modes that cater to a variety of reading levels.

Children also have the chance to help Spider-Man suit up in his gear through drawing exercises and hunt for secret “No-Prizes” within the app, which were originally implemented in 1964 by Lee when a Spider-Man fan found a continuity error in a comic and wrote a letter to the publisher.

“The Amazing Spider-Man: An Origin Story” is available in English for $6.99 from the App Store on the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore. Following the initial release, additional languages will be added for localization across Europe and Asia.

INFESTATION is the hit comic series that infects the TRANSFORMERS, G.I. JOE, Ghostbusters, and Star Trek universes with legions of undead. This dimension-spanning storyline begins with a specially priced 40-page story by writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning (The Thanos Imperative), and artist David Messina (True Blood).

IDW’s INFESTATION app includes free digital-only versions of the preview edition, an issue checklist, a cover gallery and character designs.
