Chamber Member Launches New Online Game and Figure Range
Nottingham-based Chamber member Legendary Games, which develops multi-player online platform games for mobile devices, has released has released its latest title - and a range of miniature figures featuring characters from the world it is set in.
The game is a multi-player tactical combat game for Android devices called Year 0 Tactics, which sees players lead a vicious band of marauders in a post-apocalyptic tactical battle game.
As play unfolds, players build their base, upgrade their troops and then raid and pillage other players for precious resources. All raids are real time, against real people in a turn-based war game.
Its launch came after a soft launch in the UK and followed four months of high organic user growth on Facebook, which gave the company the time to respond to users' feedback and prepare the game for global release.
"Year 0 Tactics is the perfect mobile game." said Ewan Lamont, CEO of Legendary Games. "The UI, game play and performance has been optimised for mobile devices since the beginning of development, over a year ago. It's the ideal game for mobile gamers who want a long running campaign of story with intense player versus player action."
The company, meanwhile, has also announced a partnership with Finnish manufacturer Launzer to produce a range of post-apocalyptic soldier figurines from the Year 0 universe. Players will be able to transform their in-game army into a real life 3D-printed figure display.
There are eight unique models which showcase the range of units available in the game. The models come fully textured to match their in-game appearance and are printed using high quality multi-grain powder.
Launzer also has the capability to produce the figures in 15 different materials, including solid silver, brass or even 14 carat gold model they are more than welcome to, as the Launzer website accommodates 15 different materials to print in.
“We see a great future ahead in combining 3D printing and gaming figurines. It’s really great to see the dawn of the project we have been working on for a while with Legendary Games,” said Kari Voutila, CEO of Launzer.
Ewan Lamont added: “Legendary Games are at the forefront of technological advancements once again with this collaboration with Launzer.”Back
