A new interesting game has popped up on Google Play. Ghost SEED is a location based game that divides players amongst 3 different corporations. Your phone becomes a device capable of sensing quantum events and placing quantum Selective Entropy Emitting Dualities (SEED). Players will defend the fort seeds with defensive seeds and attack enemy seeds with axe seeds. The area that you can effect is limited, which encourages movement to gain strategic positioning. To gain more money to buy more seeds, players must traverse across the map looking for boson bursts. The particles are collected and sold to the marketplace. Now, due to quantum laws, you won’t see other players on the maps, just their seeds. Currently, as the game is not wide spread yet, the forts I placed give control of a 2.5km area to my corporation which gives an added bonus to particles collected.
I think the game is a great idea. The only thing I wish is some ability to communicate with fellow players. Or perhaps seeing players that are only close to me. Either way, I’m trying to get it spread across the workplace to create, well, a war. Give it a try for yourself, after all it is free. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ctenophore.gsoclient
This summer, FUNimation and Good Game Productions will release a Fullmetal Alchemist turn based RPG. Entitled Fullmetal Battle, players will be able to access the game via iOS, Android, and Facebook. They hope to capture long time fans of the series and newcomers to the world with the game’s fast paced group battles. Players will be able to create their own state licensed alchemist complete with abilities inspired by the Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood series. They can also challenge characters from the series such as the main two, the Elric brothers. Although the press release says you will be given helpful hints from Col. Roy Mustang, any fan knows that Mustang’s hints are generally not very helpful. The most interesting aspect seems to be the group battles. Players have to fight together in 3 vs 3 battles, but the experience and leveling will take place separately through the special abilities each player selected. I can say that I am excited to see this when it arrives.
