NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ, January 15, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- These days, technology moves at modern speed, especially on mobile platforms. But for recently launched SWDTech Games, every new video game is old again. That is, retro-style Role-Playing Games (RPGs) are cool, and they're not just for hardcore gamers. SWDTech intends to mesmerize those casual gamers virtually attached to their iPhone, iPad, or Android devices.
Kunal Majmudar (Co-Owner and Audio Lead/Marketing Manager) and Len Stuart (Co-Owner and Creative Director) started SWDTech Games because, well, they love to play. They also see a business opportunity for RPGs that emphasize storytelling and atmosphere without shying away from more mature content. And no one writes the stories like Jennifer Moore Keating, Lead Writer. According to Mr. Majmudar, "We also seek to create a smartphone RPG with intuitive controls - something that, unfortunately, we don't see very often in mobile role-playing games."
What truly distinguishes SWDTech is the lineup of retro-style games they plan to release, which will hook both old-school and casual players. Hardcore gamers will revel in the nostalgia of playing new RPGs that remind them of classics from their more youthful days. "The updated pace, gameplay, controls, and user interface of SWDTech's revamped RPG library will also earn casual gamer love, or at least a whole lot of like," claims Mr. Stuart.
The company's initial gaming title, Pixel Noir, is a retro, 16-bit era RPG with a strong emphasis on story, and a gritty feel that suggests classic film noir. Old-school gamers who played Earthbound, Chrono Trigger, or Final Fantasy in a decrepit family basement (or cramped teenage bedroom) will find Pixel Noir an immersive, satisfying experience. SWDTech will release this game initially for iOS and Android devices, but will later release it for consoles and PCs/Macs. Another RPG currently under development is a "super-secret" project with the working title 'PlayerOne'.
SWDTech Games is a boutique indie game developer gleefully crafting code, pixels, audio, and dialogue in the New York tri-state area. Reinventing retro Role-Playing Games (RPGs) and developing related apps are what the SWDTech team does best. The company was founded in 2012 with a focus on compelling storytelling and atmosphere, simplified controls/user interface architecture, and retro-style graphics. Targeted playing platforms include the latest generation of mobile devices as well as "old-school" consoles and PC/Mac technology.
