Conan the Cimmerian coming to your iPhone

Conan the Cimmerian coming to your iPhone

Paradox Entertainment, through its subsidiary Conan Properties International, has begun internal development of mobile games based on its library of character properties. First out is Conan in ”Tower of the Elephant”, based on the original Robert E. Howard story, for iPhone and iPad. Developing the game with Paradox Entertainment is L.A.-based Moyo Studios. Expected release in fourth quarter 2010.

As Conan, you scale the mysterious Tower of the Elephant, fighting vicious enemies and avoiding deadly traps, to finally reach the captive Yag-Kosha and the evil Yara. The game features stunning graphics and an open, mission-based gameplay where every mission will take you deeper into the world of Conan.

”Conan: Tower of the Elephant” is a new gaming experience for iDevices. The game uses Moyo Studios’ proprietary iPhone 3D engine A2SA and features HD graphics. Using the retina display, iPhone 4 users will experience the best possible gaming experience.

“Our portfolio of character-based properties suits itself very well for interactive media such as mobile gaming. Moyo Studios has produced several successful games and we’re looking forward to this and future games based on Conan and other characters,” said Fredrik Malmberg, President and CEO of Paradox Entertainment Inc.

Leading the production are Paradox Entertainment’s VP of Production Daniel Wagner and Moyo Studios’ Creative Director Mikael Tyrsén. The official game page can be found on www.paradoxmobilegames.com. Read more about the development of the game on Moyo Studios’ development blog: http://www.moyostudios.com/conan/.

While this is Conan’s first step into mobile gaming, the character is widely available in publishing (comic books, novels), collectibles (statues, action figures, model kits), gaming (MMO, strategy boardgame), apparel and other categories. The new Conan movie, featuring Jason Momoa as Conan, as well as Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan, Rachel Nichols, Ron Perlman and Leo Howard, is currently in post-production and slated for a summer/fall 2011 release.

Cool. Conan sucked, but Age of Conan is pretty great. Hopefully the iPhone game and movie will bring more players to the MMORPG Age of Conan.

The first post said the game will be in 3D, so expect it to be more like Conan on consoles than the video posted on the first page.
