Hamburg, Germany/ Austin, Texas, USA, 5 October 2010– Today, Fishlabs demos the release candidate of Galaxy on Fire 2™ in co-operation with OpenFeint during the iPhone Game Summit at GDC Online in Austin Texas. The game will be demonstrated in Ballroom B at 12:15 on a PC; however, Galaxy on Fire 2™ will be available for iOS devices with full support of OpenFeint and Game Center functionality. The game utilizes OpenFeint 2.7 that seamlessly connects with both OpenFeint and Apple's Game Center.
"Galaxy on Fire 2 is a beautiful title from one of the best mobile developers we've worked with," said Eros Resmini, VP of Marketing at Aurora Feint. "We've been lucky enough to see this game since its early days; it's a definite must-have for gaming enthusiasts."
Along with detailed online leaderboards, tons of achievements and online save games to play Galaxy on Fire 2™ across multiple devices, the game also comes with a unique screenshot tool: Players can freeze the action at any time, rotate and zoom in or zoom out in 3D to take stunning pictures. Screenshots can be posted directly on Facebook™ from right within the game.
“Although Galaxy on Fire 2 is designed as a single player game, we knew from our experiences with the Java version that our more dedicated players demand social gaming network functionality. It deepens the gaming experience by making it more complex and introducing competition for our players who want to compete amongst each other to see who is the best Keith T. Maxwell in the Galaxy,” said Michael Schade, CEO of Fishlabs Entertainment.“With the integration of OpenFeint, we can reach out to the OpenFeint and Apple Game Center gaming community to maximize the social exposure for what promises to be the best hardcore title on the App Store.”
The release of Galaxy on Fire™ 2 is scheduled for October 27 and it will launch as universal build for iPhone and iPad at $9.99/€7,99/£5.99.
