One thousand day game teased by 'Trials HD' team
Thursday 24 February 2011
New from the makers of Xbox 360 colossus
Trials HD is an iPhone game that's to offer a new adventure every day for 1,000 days, with a new hero to guide and a new relic to gather in each of its thousand levels.
RedLynx is keeping tight-lipped about its secret project, save for a cryptic press release and a teaser video.
The company's co-founder and creative director, Antti Ilvessuo, hinted that the finished game is to involve "a past that guides us" and "ancestors whom time may have forgotten, but whose choices influence us even today."
Other recent games designed to take a long time to complete include Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 title Nier, which saves the conclusion of its story for those that play through at least three times.
ZHP: Unlosing Ranger vs Darkdeath Evilman, another PSP game, puts players in a near-endless (yet peculiarly entertaining) grind to train up their character until they are able to defeat the Evilman himself.
Infinity Blade on the iPhone and iPad takes the concept of unavoidable defeat from Demon's Souls, transplanting it into a pocket-sized epic in which generation after generation of heroes attempt to slay the same mighty beast.
The teaser trailer is hosted at http://www.redlynxmystery.com.
