‘2015 will be the year of smartwatch gaming’

Smartwatch games could be a major force in the industry, as long as developers don’t just port smartphone titles to the platform, says Everywear Games.

Aki Jrvilehto, who is the CEO of the smartwatch developer, told MCV: We expect 2015 to be the year of smartwatch gaming.

He added: Smartwatches and mobile games are quite different markets and the people who buy smartwatches are going to look for entertainment that’s specifically tailored for them. It’s going to be very different from games you’ve seen before and I think a lot of people will be surprised.

We’ll deliver games that you can play in five to 15-second sessions, where the experience builds from short sessions into something you can be passionate about over days, weeks and months.

It’s all about creating games which are more fun on a smartwatch than any other screen.”
