Copenhagen, Denmark - March 4, 2010
Tactile Entertainment, a leading iPhone game developer founded by a former lead member of Crytek, today unveiled their first title, an open-world pet sim called, Pocket Creatures. A Pocket Creature is an interactive creature that inhabits an exotic island in your iPhone or iPod Touch. On this island you’ll find a variety of plants and animals to interact with and explore. As you discover new things to do, you will notice how it affects your creature’s unique abilities and its relationship with its surroundings. Pocket Creatures is about experimentation, exploration and discovery.
“Our philosophy in founding Tactile Entertainment was to bring a new kind of game to the iPhone platform,” said Asbjoern Soendergaard, Founder and CEO of Tactile Entertainment.“With Pocket Creatures we feel that we will set a new benchmark for visual fidelity and deliver weeks of open ended gameplay that will change the way everyone thinks about gaming on the iPhone.”
Start your Pocket Creature adventure by choosing its color and hatching it from its egg. After that, it’s up to you to guide your Creature through its new island habitat. What it eats, when it eats, when it sleeps, what you teach it to love or hate; all can influence its behavior and appearance. Make friends with nearby animals and use them as fun tools to explore the surrounding environment. You can even plant a garden with mysterious seeds that produce magical fruit, providing your Creature with special abilities it can use to change its environment, and discover new objects and surprising abilities.
Pocket Creatures contains the following key features:
• Teach your Creature which objects are good or bad with positive/negative feedback
• Create your own magical garden where you and your creature can thrive
• Watch your Creature develop powerful moods and abilities that can be used to manipulate its surroundings
• Earn achievements and change the look of your creature; get horns, wings, flowers, ancient jewelry and many others
