We all know that Zynga isn't in the best shape, with bad games and rip-off lawsuits, plus slumping usage and employees fleeing, the last thing they need is another big-name player in the industry. Well, that is exactly what they got this week with comic book legend Stan Lee announcing that his company, Pow! Entertainment, is joining forces with mobile game studio Moonshark to create a new game.
The game, titled Verticus, is an action-adventure game that will be available later this fall. Stan Lee, founder and CEO, plus all around badass, said,
Working closely with Moonshark to build characters and storylines for a mobile game has been a new, and uniquely satisfying experience for me. Making Verticus is a new way for me to connect with my fans and reach a whole new group of people through their mobile devices.
New and exciting is where Stan Lee lives. This is the man who, according to Kevin Smith (Silent Bob), created our modern mythology through the comic book characters he has created. From Spider-Man to Iron Man, the man has created many characters that will stand thet test of time. This game will simply add to the list of memories for most people.
Want to know what the developer has to say about the game? How about a teaser trailer? Hit the break for both.
Matt Kozlov, CEO of Moonshark, said of working with Lee,
Stan Lee brings an extraordinary level of style and charisma to Verticus, which, combined with the game's addictive gameplay, make Verticus really special. Collaborating with Stan, a true legend and icon to millions, has been an incredibly creative experience, and we are confident fans will fall in love with the game we've made together.
I have personally not gotten into mobile gaming too much, but this is a game that could change that for me. Check out the teaser and let us know your thoughts below.
