[prMac.com] Brighton, Massachusetts - Game Developer Metaversal Studios today is happy to announce the release of their latest title, "Heal Me!"; A devilishly fun app for iOS devices that includes support for the new iPhone 5 widescreen retina display.
Created as the spiritual successor to "Shave Me!", their enormously popular entertainment app that has been downloaded over 7 million times, the studio is confident that with "Heal Me!" fans will put down the shaving cream and razors and pick up the hydrogen peroxide and bandages.
"With Heal Me!, not only can players turn their photos into hilariously gross first-aid catastrophes, but they'll have a blast doing so." Said Gavin Allen, Metaversal's Producer. "With gameplay that will be familiar to Shave Me! fans but equally entertaining to newcomers, we're very excited to share it with everyone!"
The studio has included the ability to add injuries and ailments to any picture a player chooses. They can take a picture in-app or use one that is already stored on their device. The ability to share pre and post-Heal pictures on Twitter and Facebook is expected to be one of more popular features found in "Heal Me!".
"Exercising your first-aid chops on a screen of skin is one thing, but sharing a comically over-bandaged rendition of your best friend's face for all to see? That's priceless."
With their latest release, Metaversal Studios has focused on delivering a product that is both endlessly entertainingly and comically gross. Player's devices become a landscape of skin that acts as a playing field for healing a variety of nasty user created injuries and ailments.
Players are given a variety of tools to heal the likes of burns, cuts and rashes as they are given the task of choosing the right disinfecting tools and bandages to accurately finish the job. Alternately, players can take a darker path and choose to not sew up cuts, poke bruises and pop blisters to see what the negative results will be.
"Heal Me! really lets the player's creativity run wild with a wide variety of first aid options; will you treat that cut with some peroxide, or roll the dice and see what spray cheese does to it? There's no right answers, but every choice leads to comedy that's so gross you just have to show it off!"
With both healing and harming tools (duct tape and super glue), at the player's disposal, "Heal Me!" is a comical and cringe-worthy sandbox of morality and malpractice that Metaversal Studios is proud to have unleashed onto the Apple App Store.
"Heal Me!" is a free app that the studio plans to update with additional content in the coming months.
