Grande novità per la Finlandia! Kotka Games ha organizzato un lancio spettacolare per il gioco mobile Swing Game.

La società finlandese di giochi mobili Kotka Games ha presentato il suo primo gioco mobile in modo spettacolare. Per lanciare lo Swing Game la società ha organizzato il Campionato mondiale di salto dall'altalena. Il protagonista del gioco, Ernest Kymi, ha realizzato il record mondiale di 17 m saltando da un'altalena durante il campionato.

Il gioco del salto dall'altalena, Swing Game, ha come protagonista Ernest Kymi, un 94enne che ha fatto leggenda nel salto dall'altalena. Per tutta la vita Ernest ha avuto a che fare con lo sport estremo più popolare al mondo: il salto dall'altalena. Però Ernest non è riuscito a dimostrare di cosa è davvero capace, poiché non si sono mai tenute delle gare per questo sport. Nel suo primissimo salto durante la gara Ernest salta troppo lontano e finisce su una nave di passaggio. L'obiettivo dei giocatori nello Swing Game è aiutare Ernest a rientrare in gara utilizzando la sua abilità nel salto dall'altalena. Per risolvere gli oltre 60 livelli del gioco sono necessarie capacità e intuizione. Il gioco funziona su dispositivi mobili con sistemi operativi iOS e Android e può essere scaricato dai negozi online App Store e Google Play.

È in corso di realizzazione anche un documentario sulla società che ha prodotto il gioco, Kotka Games, che sarà pronto nella primavera del 2015.
