The gaming scene on Android is becoming better by the day but so far most of the titles are ports of iOS versions. However, this new upcoming game will be released for Android first and will leverage the capabilities of the latest dual-core chipsets as well as the upcoming quad-core solutions.
SHADOWGUN is a third-person tactical combat game developed by MADFINGER Games, the same people who created Samurai II: Vengeance. The game will be optimized for the current dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processors as well as the upcoming quad-core Tegra (Kal-El) processors and there will be a separate version for each.
Here’s a short description of the game straight from the horse’s mouth:
Authored with the Unity development platform, SHADOWGUN combines tactical combat with third person harrowing action, ushering in a new visual standard for handheld gaming. SHADOWGUN puts players into the role of John Slade, a professional bounty hunter in the year 2350. Slade’s mission: hunt down Dr. Edgar Simon, renowned geneticist and former employee of the trans-galactic corporation Toltech Enterprises. Players must lead “shadowgun” John Slade as he infiltrates Dr. Simon’s mountain fortress and fights his personal army of mutants, cyborgs, and genetically-enhanced humanoids. Using state-of-the-art weaponry, ships, and the assistance of S.A.R.A.—Slade’s personal android assistant. The story is written by award winning author Micah Nathan who has joined the MadFinger team as executive creative consultant for SHADOWGUN.
No release date has been mentioned yet. The game will be available for smartphones as well as tablets that run on NVIDIA Tegra platform and will be available on the Tegra Zone and the Android Market.
