[prMac.com] Oslo, Norway - Norwegian iPhone developer Nor Eagle today announced the title of their next iPhone game: "Squid Drop(TM)" The company has decided to ask for the public's help to make the game a success. They are therefore asking people who are interested to sign up as game-testers.
"That's right," said T. Benjamin Larsen, Nor Eagle CEO. "Squid Drop is shaping up and we're now at a stage where it's just starting to resemble a game. We feel this title shows a lot of promise but we need the public's help to make it live up to its potential. That's why we've decided to put out an open call for beta- and play testers. Anyone interested in taking part should check out SquidDrop online."
Nor Eagle have until now been sparse on the details regarding the game. So far the only information revealed is the title, and the image of the titular squid. According to the game's site their aim is: "...to marry a really simple gaming mechanism with enough variety to create a title that lasts... forever!" The company also quote Doodle Jump, Canabalt and Flight Control among their inspirations, actually going as far as to promote these games on their own site. "It might seem like an odd thing to do," said Larsen. "But credit were credit's due. We wouldn't mind mentioning even more of our competitor's products, for instance the brilliant Super QuickHook by Rocketcat. We might come across as a bit naive for doing this but we'd rather be a small and friendly company than a large and cynical one. No I won't mention names!" he laughed. Squid Drop is expected to be available later this summer for the iPhone and iPod touch. Nor Eagle is expected to reveal more information as it becomes available.
