“Star Shipping has been a top 10 strategy and puzzle game on the iOS platform in many countries and has garnered great reviews from the media and players,” said Oded Sharon, CEO of Corbomite Games. “Star Shipping Inc. is an addictive space game with simple strategic gameplay and high production values, making it ideal for strategy gamers who want to enjoy a casual game anywhere.”

The goal of Star Shipping is to become the richest captain in the galaxy by trading commodities between new and existing planets, while working for the intergalactic space trading company “Star Shipping Inc.” Since space travel between planets is unpredictable, players encounter multiple types of enemies like space pirates, monsters and other alien life forms. You can choose between flying solo or by hiring defense drones to help protect your cargo. In-game news at the end of each turn dramatically affects the next turn’s outcome as well as random events that occur during travel which make players think twice before taking chances, while increasing the fun as the game progresses.

“Star Shipping reached top 10 best strategy and puzzle game in the iOS App Store in many countries and has gathered great reviews by the members of the media and players,” said Oded Sharon, CEO of Corbomite Games. “I’m looking forward to see Android users engaging in our addictive little space game. Star Shipping has very simple strategic gameplay with high production values, making it ideal for strategy gamers who want to enjoy some ‘no-pressure” casual game time this season.”

About Star Shipping

Star Shipping offers players challenges that don’t rely on their ability to hit stuff on the screen, and doesn’t require them to be completely focused on the game at all times. Instead, they can play at their own pace, and use economy planning skills and intellect to trade various commodities between stars and climb up the score ladder as they accomplish the goal of becoming the richest space captain in the galaxy. Star Shipping includes an in-game store where you can buy upgrades to your ship in order to increase performance and get higher scores, scoring and ranking systems, leaderboards, achievements, challenges and more.

In the high resolution version of the game, there is significantly more content, and players will see even more beautiful space backdrops, planets, aliens, nebulae, space ships, items and characters. The game also includes unique features for each platform, for example, the accelerometer is used on the iPhone and iPad, and the mouse is used on PC and Mac.

The Middle East: GDC Talk Enters New Frontiers in Gaming

Posted by SoundGuy under Events

The Middle East: GDC Talk Enters New Frontiers in Gaming

Game Developer Conference talk will discuss challenges and opportunities in the Middle East.

TEL-AVIV, Israel - Feb 21, 2011 – As part of the GDC Localization Summit, Oded Sharon, CEO of Corbomite Games, will talk about the challenges and opportunities of the Middle East games market along with another speaker from the region. The talk will be held on February 28th, 2011 @ 5:25PM PST, Room 302, South Hall, Moscone Center, San Francisco.

Spanning over 23 countries with more than 75M internet users, and one of the fastest growing markets, the Middle East is mostly overlooked by game developers and publishers, especially since successfully localized titles have seen significant increases in sales over non-localized games.

“We gathered up a bunch of relevant examples, case studies and market data to present at the largest conference for game developers in the world,” said Oded Sharon, CEO of Corbomite Games. “We’re doing this so more publisher and developers see the Middle East as an additional and viable market for their games. We hope GDC will offer the platform for launching an aggressive campaign to draw more attention to the Middle East’s booming game development industry.”

The Middle East game market has grown exponentially year over year for the last 5 years, making it a viable place for localized games. The presentation will provide a brief overview of the Middle East market and its potential, deal with challenges and opportunities, and provide examples of successfully localized titles - both in and outside of the region.

Attendees will be exposed to the opportunities and differentiators of the games market across the Middle East. The presentation will highlight real examples of market experiences and opportunities across the Arabic and Hebrew speaking countries (population of 400+ million); for multiple platforms (Online, PC, Mobile).

The speakers will discuss challenges such as cultural differences, religious implications, language barriers, left-to-right writing, and will compare games to other mediums including TV, movies, books, and the press.
