To stand out in the large crowd of mobile video games on the Apple App Store and Google Play, you need to test your ideas with a good prototype. To help you find out what that might look like, here are three mobile video game prototypes we developed over the past few years.
As much as we love building prototypes for game developers, there’s something special about helping out passionate professionals that have no ties to the games industry at all. Read on for a detailled breakdown on how we helped come alive one man’s vision to aid children build test confidence.
Prototype developers rarely find themselves in the spotlight, so it’s great to see a prototype we’ve worked on take on promising form. The card strategy game Incarnate is looking better than ever, so there’s really no reason at all to not help fund it on Kickstarter.
Videogames are an excellent way to expand on existing universes of movies or books. When a Belgian writer asked us to come up with a fun and accessible game concept to complement the fiction of his thriller book series, we heartily accepted the challenge.
The games industry is doing fine and we’ve got the numbers to prove it! By whipping up a couple of statistical graphs we come to an interesting conclusion that may or may not be already spoiled in the title of the post. Hint: don’t stash away those smartphones and tablets yet.
What happens at PreviewLabs is pure sorcery and it’s not often we let our readers in on the magic we concoct behind closed doors. But since we’re feeling generous, we just released all documentation on the Siegebreaker prototype. There’s even a playable build!
Following the logic that a picture tells more than a thousand words, a video must tell more than a couple of books. And seeing as we’ve got no less than five prototype videos for your viewing pleasure, that means we just have saved you a LOT of reading.
Panic!, a game by Thumbs Up has been announced by Ripstone as one of the launch titles for Sony’s forthcoming PlayStation Mobile platform, and we’re proud to announce we have developed the prototype for the game!
Siegebreaker, the tower defense game by Crazy Monkey Studios we prototyped for, has been out for a couple of weeks now and the fine gentlemen at CMS are cool with us talking about the different steps we took and problems we faced while building their prototype.
It’s impossible to estimate how useful a certain technology will be to us without first exploring the technological boundaries. We spent the last few weeks stretching augmented reality to its limit in order to assess the possibilities the tech offers. Here’s some things we found out.
What to do when you want to play a quick game of darts but there’s no dartboard in sight? You whip out your smartphone and use the digital dartboard prototype that’s brought to you by the combined power of PreviewLabs and augmented reality of course. Video inside!
We’re convinced that spicing up your game pitch with a playable prototype radically increases your chances of successfully landing a publisher deal. But you don’t have to take our word for it: our client Thumbs Up Games explains in detail how they found an interested publishing party at gamescom.
When we just started out as a company and our name wasn’t as renowned as it is today, we made a prototype for a game we largely finished ourselves. It’s been sitting on the shelf for far too long but now it’s finally been released. So there you have it: our very first own game!
We’re opening our doors once again to give you a unique look into the inner workings of our company. This time we take a look at the prototyping process of Color Collider, the colorful puzzle game by our client Crazy Monkey Studios that’s published by Capcom.
We’re honored to add another published game to our list of projects we prototyped for. The credit goes to Crazy Monkey Studios that have just released their colorful puzzle game Color Collider on the App Store. We know it’s great fun, because we helped think up the concept.
