June Software announces the launch of the Think Game

San Francisco – 27 Feb 2014 – June Software – the studio behind the number 1 movie trivia game – “Guess the Movie?” launched its latest offering to the public – Think. The game is an audacious attempt to explore new frontiers with word puzzles. “We see symbols and icons around us every minute of our lives. Each and every one of these symbols mean something and tell a story. Our goal was to build a game in which we – the designers – attempt to communicate with the players using only symbols.” – the principal designer of Think said.

Spread over 360 puzzles in 30 levels, the game starts off by familiarizing the player with common symbols that we see around us. The game attempts to ask the user to guess words and phrases from over ten categories which include objects, actions, abstract concepts, films, books, phrases and TV shows.

The game design is very minimal and slick – using only three colors throughout.

The Think game also features an immersive soundtrack by award winning sound designer Jim Guthrie which helps drawing players in.

Fear in the Gorge–Trailer

4 of 8

Fresh Ideas Division, LLC/Spook Night Films just released something “Big”.

“Fear in the Gorge” is the second release in their App & a Movie collection.  It’s an action, adventure, horror film – but the film clips have been scrambled.  You have to use the app to put the movie clips into the proper order, which will then unlock the exciting end of the movie.  If you like multi-dimensional puzzles and enjoy watching movies, then check out this App & a Movie.

If you are successful in unlocking the movie, watching the movie may make you think twice about what you might do if you ever happen to stumble upon Bigfoot in the forest.  Would you snap a few photos, maybe shoot some video – or actually shoot Bigfoot and drag him back into town as ultimate proof??

The 58 minute movie is embedded into the app so that you can play with it offline, without exhausting your data plan.  It’s only $1.29 for an App and a Movie.  A great deal.

Find it in the Windows Phone Store.  A free trial is available.

Who Knew?

Do you know? Choose wisely.

I just recently finished development on a Windows Phone game called Who Knew?.

Now granted, I’m a bit biased, but I really feel like we’ve written the best trivia game on the Windows market. The genre, to me, is tailor made for mobile gaming. You should be able to just drop in and answer a few questions anytime/anywhere and come out of the experience not only having been entertained, but also having learned a fascinating new fact or two. Unfortunately, the current crop of trivia-based offerings in the Windows Phone store seem to be stuck either catering to a specific movie/TV show or have overly complicated interfaces with generic “seriously, who doesn’t know that?” questions. Plus, with the exception of EA’s lackluster Trivial Pursuit port, none of them are even close to the top tier of games listed in the “puzzle+trivia” section of the store, much less in any overall categories.

With Who Knew?, I’m gunning to change that. I truly believe I have a game here that everyone can enjoy. Casual gamers, knowledge junkies, bored people on the toilet – everybody. The whole game is designed around the concept of learning fascinating new things every time you play, rather than just putting up the highest score. Explanations to incorrect answers are provided, written in a way that doesn’t just tell you what the actually fact is, but also (hopefully) elicits a bit of a chuckle too.

There are five categories available in this initial release, each with 100 questions. You can choose from Food, Geography, History, Pop Culture, or Science. Stats are tracked and displayed on the home screen, just in case you’re curious as to which category you’re strongest in or how many times you’ve answered a question wrong. Sometimes you just have to know.

I would really appreciate if you could take the time to check out Who Knew? for yourself. See if it strikes you in the way I’m hoping it does, and then pass it along.
