POSSIBLE und Fox Digital Entertainment lancieren Mobilspiel DIE HARD für iOS-, Android- und Kindle-Fire-Plattformen

POSSIBLE, ein Unternehmen von WPP Digital, und Fox Digital Entertainment haben heute die Freigabe des neuen Handyspiels DIE HARD auf iOS- und Android-Plattformen sowie auf Kindle von Amazon angekündigt. Das Spiel, das auf dem Actionfilm „STIRB LANGSAM – EIN GUTER TAG ZUM STERBEN“ von Twentieth Century Fox mit Bruce Willis und Jai Courtney in den Hauptrollen beruht, kombiniert die besten Elemente der Endless-Runner- und Ego-Shooter-Genres in einem spannenden neuen Format – dem „Endless Shooter“. Die App kostet 0,99 US-Dollar auf iOS und Amazon und ist auf Android kostenlos zu haben.

Für die App wandte sich Fox Digital Entertainment an das zu POSSIBLE gehörende Unternehmen Goroid, das mit TheEndApp bereits ein Endless-Runner-Spiel entwickelt hat, das sowohl auf iOS als auch auf Android unter die Top 10 gekommen ist. Für DIE HARD lautete die Aufgabe, eine App zu entwickeln, deren Spielmechanik und Einstellung dem unverwechselbaren Charakter der STIRB LANGSAM-Filmreihe mit dem Originalhelden John McClane und dem neuen Protagonisten Jack McClane entspricht. Anders als beim Endless-Runner-Genre, wo der Spieler von gefährlichen Situationen flieht, geht er in DIE HARD frontal und in Ich-Perspektive auf Action- und Kampfszenen zu und nimmt es mit seinen Gegnern auf.

„Die STIRB LANGSAM-Serie ist eine der unverwechselbarsten Unterhaltungsmarken der Welt, und es ist uns eine Ehre, mit der neuen DIE HARD-App die jüngste Fortsetzung davon herausgeben zu dürfen“, sagte Andrew Solmssen, Geschäftsführer von POSSIBLE in Los Angeles. „Unser oberstes Ziel bei der Entwicklung der App war es, ein für sich stehendes, fantastisches Spielerlebnis zu schaffen.“

Die DIE HARD-App, die Fans der STIRB LANGSAM-Filme und Gamer ebenso begeistern wird, nimmt Figuren, Handlungsorte und Waffen aus „STIRB LANGSAM – EIN GUTER TAG ZUM STERBEN“ auf. Fox Digital Entertainment und POSSIBLE werden das Spiel laufend weiterentwickeln und Aktualisierungen, neue Missionen sowie neue Bonusinhalte für die Fans bereitstellen.

„Wir sind froh über unsere Zusammenarbeit mit POSSIBLE bei der Entwicklung des DIE HARD-Spiels“, sagte Rick Phillips, Senior Vice President der Mobilabteilung bei Fox Digital Entertainment. „Es ist unser Ziel, ein innovatives, für sich stehendes Spielerlebnis zu schaffen, das dieselbe berstende Spannung bietet wie der Film – und das DIE HARD-Spiel erfüllt dieses Versprechen.“

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
