As we were told you like to know which games will be trending before they are released, we are determined to zoom in on the most promising developers from all over the world and show what they’re working on. In the end, in these times of mass hipsteria one never knows where the next Angry Birds, Angry Words or Angry Instagram will land. However, we can put our Android nose to work and smell how the next crop of Android games and apps will be. This fortnight we’ve chosen a couple of exquisite games. They are casual games with a lot of effort in design and gameplay, suited for all ages and devices. In short, the kind of games we like most.
So, let’s not waste any time and let’s get previewing Ecofish, by Eclipse Games, a small indie company from Zaragoza, Spain. They got it into their head that they wanted to reinvent the old game of uncovering the greater possible percentage of the screen while graceful yet unpredictable monsters try to eat you or the line you’re drawing. The main metaphor is that instead of claiming pieces of the screen for the sake of doing so, you’ll play the role of a lovely yet upset fish in its continue mission to clean up the seas of garbage and pollution, facing hostile sea creatures who prefer to live in contaminated reefs and marine depths. Here’s a video from Eclipse Games, who shows an advanced beta stage game so you can catch how Ecofish will look like.
