Pocket Gems’ has launched their hit title, War Dragons, for our beloved Android devices. The title boasts over 183 million battles fought and 13 million Dragons bred on those iOS devices out there and is pretty huge hit. War Dragons, in a nut shell, is a 3D real-time strategy game that puts you in control of a Dragon army. You will need to breed new Dragons, join forces with friends and build your fortress. I am completely comfortable admitting that the game caught my attention from their promo video, which, to say the least, is nothing short of awesome. Check it out.
The commercial, titled Dragon Days, takes viewers back to a simpler time when dragons and humans co-existed peacefullyâ€¦ and then burns it all to the ground. The tongue-in-cheek spot seamlessly contrasts the cheesy morning cartoon style of the â€˜90s with War Dragonsâ€™ rich 3D graphics. Renowned animator, J.J. Sedelmaier, was chosen as the projectâ€™s creative director due to his sharp sense of humor and visionary comedic work. The commercial will begin airing nationally this month.
“Who wouldn’t jump at the chance to contrast the children’s programming we all grew up watching with the intensity of the gaming realm?! On top of that, this was a wonderful chance to combine two animation techniques that have been fighting each other for decades anyway,” said Sedelmaier.
There is a more, normal, launch video attached to the Play Store listing that gives a little game play action. This one just doesn’t make me smile as much.
