Vancouver, Canada (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
Mobile game company Mojaro today announced its inaugural title, KnightScape™, is now available in the App Store for iOS. KnightScape is an epic all-action game that combines fast-paced obstacle course levels with hand-to-hand combat. Set in a stunning medieval 3D world, KnightScape is a sword-smashing adventure where a lowly peasant must fight to become a wealthy prince and rescue his princess. The game takes a chapter from storybook fairytales and immerses players in an action-packed experience featuring an original cast of characters and storyline. KnightScape is free-to-play and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices.
Mojaro is led by CEO and Co-founder Laurent Ancessi, a seasoned veteran with 25 years’ experience in the games industry, including leading development studios at both Electronic Arts and Sony. KnightScape is the first in a series of games created with the company’s proprietary cross-genre mobile gaming platform, also called Mojaro™, which will pioneer a new extended game experience.
“KnightScape is an engaging, HD quality action adventure game that’s truly cinematic in presentation, and most importantly, a blast to play,” said Mojaro CEO Laurent Ancessi. “This the first game developed for our Mojaro mobile platform, which yields sterling performance as well as cross-pollination benefits that will become apparent in future releases.”
The Mojaro platform has been in development for over two years and players of KnightScape will see the technology come into play as they progress through the game with a surprise toward the end.
