Crytek takes an interesting mobile approach

Fibble – Flick ‘n’ Roll hardly sounds like the sort of hardcore, grown-up games we’ve come to expect from Crytek but – believe it or not – this is the company’s first foray into the exciting waters of mobile gaming.

Cevat Yerli, CEO & President of Crytek explains:

Going mobile is an incredibly exciting step for us as a game development company. The way that people play games on mobile devices is a real blessing. This allows us to get back to our roots, experiment and focus our energy on creating great gameplay experiences while still keeping Crytek’s high production values.

  • Physics based gameplay.
  • Easy to understand physics based on natural understanding of the player.
  • Instinctive navigation using touch screen controls.
  • Action Puzzler! A puzzle game using brains, timing, and reflexes.
  • Objectives and scoreboards encouraging competition between players worldwide.
  • Achievements for the completionists out there. Do you have the skill to collect all the achievements?

Nick Button-Brown, General Manager Games at Crytek elaborates:

With Fibble – Flick ‘n’ Roll, Crytek is aiming to surprise people with a whole new style of game as well as to make a big impact in the field of mobile entertainment. It will also give us a great opportunity to make a big splash with a whole new generation of players who’ve yet to play a Crytek game. We ourselves love to play games on mobile devices and we very much look forward to bringing our production values and skills to them.

…but what is Fibble all about? Well, Fibble himself is a “cute, but brave and curious” little extraterrestrial being, who’s crashlanded on our planet and become separated from his crew. Fibble must find – and rescue – each of his friends, which means you’ll have to search the mysterious location to help him. (There’s also a bunch of “Mini creatures” that’ll assist you, by the way.)

It’s a significant jump from the Crysis franchise, but Crytek seems up for the challenge. Fibble is due out for both Android and iOS handsets in (Northern hemisphere) Spring 2012.
