Brno, Czech Republic - June 29, 2012 - Madfinger Games
today announced that Dead Trigger, an eagerly anticipated
first-person zombie shooter game, is now available on the App
Store. With outstanding next-generation graphics and user-friendly
gameplay on mobile devices, Madfinger Games has again created an
amazing handheld experience.
Madfinger Games has already established a reputation as a game
developer capable of delivering visuals that push the limits of
mobile technology with titles like Shadowgun. Developed using the
Unity game engine, Dead Trigger is raising the bar for mobile game
graphics even higher.
Madfinger Games worked hard on making their game different from
the abundance of other zombie-themed video games out there. "Dead
Trigger stands out visually because of the game making process
itself," said Benysek, lead programmer at Madfinger Games, who
added that the game employs a number of tools and effects
you’d find in big budget console games like advanced shaders,
detailed character and enemy models, and even motion capture for
"both living and undead animations."
The team pointed out that they put a lot of time and energy into
crafting the game’s enemy AI, too. Unlike some undead-themed
games, zombies in Dead Trigger aren’t simply braindead drones
shambling about, hoping to take a bite out of players, but they
actually react adaptively to the player’s movements, and will
do things like climb over obstacles to get to them.
Dead Trigger takes place in an alternate reality version of 2012
where modern civilization is on the brink of collapse and hordes of
undead flesh-eaters now roam the Earth. Even though Dead
Trigger’s storyline is purely fantasy, the team said that its
fiction draws some inspiration from real-life...albeit in a
highly-exaggerated "worst-case-scenario" way.
Madfinger Games said that they aren’t simple going to
release the game and move onto the next project. "We will
ceaselessly be working on it post-release to enhance it as much as
possible," promised Michal Babjár, Vice President of
MADFINGER Games. He explained that like a number of console games,
post-release support for Dead Trigger will include both technical
improvements and brand-new gameplay content. "We hope to continue
to surprise players with the new updates we have planned. Even
after Dead Trigger is out, players can look forward to new
missions, weapons, characters and much more."
Dead Trigger is carving up the App Store, available now for
$0.99, €0.79 or £0.69. This Universal App is compatible
with iPhone 4G, iPhone 4S, iPod 4G and all iPads.
Android version of Dead Trigger will be released in few
