De nieuwste sensatie uit Finland! Spectaculaire lancering van mobiele game Swing Game van Kotka Games.

Kotka Games, de Finse producent van mobiele games, heeft haar eerste mobiele game op spectaculaire wijze gepubliceerd. Om de lancering van de Swing Game luister bij te zetten, organiseerde het bedrijf het wereldkampioenschap schommelspringen. Tijdens deze kampioenschappen zette de hoofdpersoon uit de game, Ernest Kymi, het wereldrecord op 17 m.

De game Swing Game, waarin alles draait om schommelspringen, is gebaseerd op Ernest Kymi, een legendarische 94-jaar oude schommelspringer. Zijn leven lang heeft Ernest zich bezig gehouden met de populairste extreme sport ter wereld – schommelspringen. Ernest heeft echter nooit de gelegenheid gehad om te laten zien waartoe hij in staat is, omdat nog nooit officiële kampioenschappen zijn gehouden voor deze sport. Tijdens zijn eerste sprong van de wedstrijd springt Ernest veel te ver en landt hij op een passerend schip. Het doel van de speler in de Swing Game is Ernest door middel van vaardigheden op het gebied van schommelspringen weer terug in de wedstrijd te krijgen. Het oplossen van de meer dan 60 levels van de game vraag om vaardigheid en inzicht. De game kan worden gespeeld op mobiele apparaten met iOS en Android en is online verkrijgbaar in de App Store en Google Play.

Er wordt een documentaire gemaakt over Kotka Games, het bedrijf dat de game heeft geproduceerd. Deze documentaire zal in het voorjaar van 2015 uitkomen.

Hier is meer te zien van de game:
