Verticus Preview

Outside of a collection of Marvel-based video game releases, it’s not very often that you see the legendary comic evangelist, Stan Lee, take on an active role within the creation of a video game experience. Stan Lee, the God behind Marvel, has stepped out of this comfort zone and has teamed up with Moonshark, a mobile entertainment publisher, to deliver a unique iOS experience with the upcoming release, Verticus. I recently had the opportunity to speak with the CEO of Moonshark, Matt Kozlov, on the premise behind Moonshark and what gamers can expect with the release of Verticus. Read more!

Founded early last year, Moonshark was co-founded and has investors within Qualcomm, world leader in next-generation mobile technologies, and Creative Artists Agency (CAA), one of Hollywood's top talent agencies. Many may ask what form of involvement CAA has with Moonshark with their primary focus on managing celebrities, and while this is true, CAA also invests and puts businesses together in new media to introduce value utilizing their vast lineup of talent.

Matt spoke on the massive scale presented with the mobile gaming space as today’s devices are almost always attached to us and the user base is dramatically higher than any other form of gaming. This allows for more interaction with users and for an easier introduction to characters and new gameplay experiences for the market. When Stan Lee was approached about the idea of partnering on a project that would be delivered with a mobile focus, Stan Lee took immediate interest as an iPhone and iPad owner and one who likes to introduce his craft to new formats.

Together with Stan, Moonshark began development on Verticus at the beginning of the year and collaboratively developed a story, hero, background, and even created Stan’s very own character as the mission commander featuring his very own voice. The story behind Verticus is embraced with an evil alien race known as the Obliterators, who have infiltrated our planet who are tunneling towards the center of Earth where they are planning to implant a doomsday device called the Cosmicfuse intended to blow up our planet. The only way to prevent such disaster is for the hero, Verticus, to free fall through the atmosphere, skyscraper cities, and center of the Earth to the core of the planet with a high-tech heat-resistant, strong, flexible suit that acquires power-ups over time to eventually reach and defuse the device. As you free fall with Verticus, your focus will be avoiding obstacles, enemy attacks, and other forms of harm that may get in the way on your path to saving Earth.

Verticus supports integration of social elements such as GameCenter where your distance fallen and points earned within each run will be recorded and instantly compared to those scores of your GameCenter friends. Verticus will also allow for instant posting of scores to both Twitter and Facebook to prove your free falling skills to all of your friends linked to you via the two most popular social networks.

Classified as an “infinite faller”, Verticus, developed using the Unity Engine, will launch exclusively on the iOS platform, but the idea of introducing the experience to other platforms such as Android was not shot down, nor confirmed.

Set to release this fall, Verticus will not take advantage of the new iPhone 5’s larger display and improved hardware due to the strong focus on launching during their intended release time frame, but Matt believes there will be relatively minimal adjustments to be made, but these changes were once again neither confirmed nor denied. Pricing has yet to be made official, but Matt did state that users should expect a price of under $5 with a universal business model meaning once you purchase it on any iOS platform, you will have access to all iOS versions (iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad) optimized for their platforms. While the success of Verticus relies heavily within the hands of the consumers, Matt stated that their goal is for Verticus to expand greatly into dedicated action figures, t-shirts, and more, so keep your eyes out for Verticus on iOS this fall!

To celebrate the announcement of Verticus, Moonshark will gift a few lucky fans of their Verticus Facebook page with a signed piece of Verticus artwork from the game signed by Stan Lee.

    Jonathan Toews watched the end of the fifth game of the MBT Shoes from the Blackhawks bench, unable to play after a hit to his head.Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron was in a Chicago hospital after leaving the United Center by ambulance.As the Stanley Cup Final approaches a sixth and potential clinching game on Monday night, the attention shifted from the players on the ice to the ones who might not make it there, including two of the top forwards and biggest stars in the series.It's not the best situation for either team, Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask said Sunday after both teams flew back to Boston. But it's a tough sport, and injuries happen. When you leave it all out there to help your team win, that's all part of the game.Bergeron was injured in the second period of Game 5 on Saturday night, which the Blackhawks won 3-1 to take a 3-2 lead in the series. He made two brief appearances on the ice in the third period but something was obviously wrong and he was unable to complete either shift.Toews, who won the Selke Award as the NHL's top defensive forward - Bergeron was a finalist - missed the entire third period after a shot to the head from MBT Sandals shop.They're both great players, Chicago winger Patrick Sharp said. I think any coach in the league, any player in the league would like to have those guys on their team. They take pride in taking faceoffs, playing well away from the puck, making their linemates better, (they're) both big parts of the locker room.I can't speak for what Boston is dealing with, with Bergeron. I know I don't need to say much about Jonathan. I think everyone knows what we think of him in our locker room. Hopefully we can have him back for (Monday).Bergeron, who was taken to the hospital for observation, was released later Saturday night and rejoined his teammates for a team meal.He was crushing some food, Bruins forward Brad Marchand said Sunday.Bergeron was on the team flight back from Chicago. After the Bruins' bus arrived at the TD Garden in the afternoon, he walked without crutches or assistance to a car and was driven away.He's good. He came back with us and everything so hopefully he can play, Marchand said. He looked really good today. He had a nice suit on, very dashing. Obviously, he's a big part of the team and hopefully he can play.The Blackhawks lost Toews after Boychuk knocked him down in the slot, making contact with his head. Boychuk wasn't penalized, and Michael Kors Handbags spokesman John Dellapina said on Sunday that the league reviewed the hit and there will be no supplemental discipline.I think they said it was clean, wasn't it? Then I agree with them, Bruins coach Claude Julien said. I'm not going to hide from that. If it wasn't a clean hit - I've been a guy that supported those kind of things that we need to get out of the game. But it was a clean hit.Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville alluded to the contact with the head but then said, I'm not going to go there.Toews was tied with Patrick Kane for the Blackhawks team lead with 23 goals during the regular season. Since being reunited with Kane on Chicago's top line in Game 4, Chicago has rallied to take the lead in the best-of-seven series. Before he was knocked out of the Game 5, Toews assisted on both of Kane's goals.He's our leader, Chicago defenseman Michael Kors Bags online sale. You know, he's one of those guys, and when he's full-speed he gives everything he's got every game. That's something that is tough to replace.Quenneville said Toews was doing much better and the team is optimistic he will be able to play in Game 6.We'll see how he is. I think the progress today, he's doing real good, Quenneville said. We'll visit in the morning, and he seemed fine. So nothing has changed. Nothing is different. We'll keep an eye on him, and we'll go from there.With or without Toews and Bergeron, the Blackhawks have a chance to clinch their second Stanley Cup title in four seasons on Monday night in Boston. If they lose, the series returns to Chicago for a decisive seventh game on Wednesday.And that, Julien said, is why he wasn't worried about whether Toews will play or not.I think I should be looking in my backyard and make sure I've got my guys playing tomorrow before I start worrying about the game plan with them, he said. Right now we know it's up to us to ... bring our 'A' game if we want a chance to win. That part of it should be more important than who they have and don't have in their lineup.
