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.“

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments.

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
