After several years of development, Zynga is finally launching its epic action strategy game Dawn of Titans around the world.
Zynga has struggled in the last few years to regain its glory, but it has had a hard time moving beyond its core casual gaming audience for titles such as Zynga Poker, FarmVille, and Words With Friends.
NaturalMotion, led by Torsten Reil, has been the great hope of Zynga in its pursuit of hardcore gamers on mobile devices.Frank Gibeau, CEO of Zynga, said earlier that Zynga would launch 10 games during the year, and NaturalMotion s Dawn of Titans is the final one on that list.
For instance, he said, NaturalMotion completely remade the user interface, adding shortcuts so that you can quickly move to different buildings or launch an attack.
At NaturalMotion, we always try to make games that make you go wow.'
This is the first Zynga game that will truly wow players with how it looks, starting with the fantasy kingdom in the sky that has high-end 3D graphics such as high-dynamic range, lighting effects for sunlight and shadows, vaporous clouds, waterfall effects, forests that sway in the wind, and even little ambient peasants that walking between the buildings.
