Soft Freak Fiesta off to a Great Start

December 15, 2009

Finally, our second iPhone title is out! We were delighted to find that our neighbors, the Brits, consider our new multiplayer game, Soft Freak Fiesta new and noteworthy.

We would like to share with you what our players are saying about the game:

…stop whatever you are doing RIGHT NOW and get this game. I am not kidding, it is friggin cool as hell. I just played a match and it is one of the best experiences I have seen on iPhone. — Flickitty

…love the various game modes and the different critter things — sebasterbator

“…nice game ^ ^ nice idea, great minigames, multiplayer, and even for free, Top!” — Player, German App Store

“This game is very fun to play. The graphics are great, the gameplay is solid, and there is a suprising amount of strategy that comes into play when facing real players. There is a diverse selection of online maps as well. Get this app.” — Player, US App Store

As Soft Freak Fiesta is off to a great start, we noticed that our App Store debut Symbol6 is getting some attention as well. The guys over at the US App Store put the acclaimed puzzler in their pile of staff favorites. We’re very pleased about that.

Soft Freak Fiesta is free for the first 24 hours, so go, go, go!
Get it here!

Gogogic Receives Grant for “Rupture: A Collectable Card Game”

December 14, 2009

On December 10th 2009, Gogogic was formally awarded a grant for 400.000 DKK (just shy of $80.000) from the Nordic Game Program.

This is the second time in a row that Gogogic receives this grant so we feel extremely proud and happy. Like with Vikings of Thule, we think the grant will allow us to create yet another innovative gaming experience.

The grant is specifically tied to the development of a collectable card game for both the iPhone and Facebook, which currently goes by the working title of “Rupture”. The game is set to launch in the summer of 2010. It won’t be long until we leak more information, shiny teasers and some wild concept art.

The Soft Freaks are Coming!

December 1, 2009

The soft freaks are on a roll! It won’t be long until gamers all over can get their hands on our next iPhone adventure.

Soft Freak Fiesta is our new multiplayer iPhone game where you take control of crazy critters called soft freaks. It’s all about turn-based multiplayer rivalries in various game modes, squashing bugs for power-ups, waking up a few, silly zombies, earning tons of awards and a whole lot of bumping.

This release includes 3 types of soft freaks to choose from, 3 different game modes and 5 beautiful levels. We also crammed some fun extras in there as well. We’re already planning a bulging upgrade with new exciting game modes, even freakier soft freaks, new levels and a bundle of extra features.

We’ve been hard at work over the last few months so we could bring you a fun and engaging multiplayer experience. The guys over at 148Apps have already taken it for a spin and we were delighted to hear that they think our little adventure could be a huge hit. You can read all about 148Apps’ first thoughts here.

The game is currently awaiting Apple’s approval and it shouldn’t be long until you can immerse yourselves in some bumpy cartoony action.

We’ll let you know when Soft Freak Fiesta hits the App Store. Hopefully you’re all as excited as we are.

Check out the gameplay video!

After a successful release of our critically acclaimed App Store debut Symbol6, it’s time to bark upon a new adventure. This one is a bit bigger and revolves around cuddly ill-tempered critters and their fiesta gone wrong.

Soft Freak Fiesta is a multiplayer game for the iPhone and iPod Touch where players can play head-to-head via Bluetooth or WiFi and immerse themselves in bumpy cartoony action for hours on end.

You won’t have to wait long for sneak peeks and more about the game, but all we can tell you at this point is that the game features a unique gameplay for the device, multiple races, multiple game modes, sleek graphics and fast-asleep zombies for extra fun.

Soft Freak Fiesta to be out this fall.
