Freesky Online Coming to the Palm Pre!

Posted Jun 19, 2009 by Michael Bitton

Freesky Online Coming to the Palm Pre!

IGG announces today that their game Freesky Online will be coming to the Palm Pre. It looks like IGG was going to develop Freesky Online for the iPhone, but decided instead to switch to the Palm Pre.

So for those of you out there looking to play an MMOG on your phone, keep your eyes out for this one.

The full press release is available below:

Freesky Online Looking to Release Palm Pre App Version

Freesky Online (http://fo.igg.com) is an online strategy game featuring RPG and SLG that will soon have you looking for any excuse to check your cell phone. That’s right, the Freesky development team is planning to bring this great game to a Palm Pre near you!

A few months ago the FO dev team was working on a transplant that would allow Freesky to be played on the Apple iPhone 3G, using their touch screen tech. Controls were being specifically designed for players to be able to build their Empire’s, attack enemies and manage their armies simply by touching the screen of their phone. All this changed when the smart phone company that started it all jumped in the mix with the release of their new handset, the Palm Pre. The Pre featured a Web Operating System that would be ideally suited for the Freesky app, and had the stylish appearance, and performance that would rival the vaunted iPhone. The FO dev team is excited about the prospect of working with Palm and their new phone to develop an app for it.

Although the Apps aren’t near completion yet, both phones offer outstanding platforms to support Freesky, and the dev team will compare the two companies’ SDK and smartphone systems to select the one more suitable for a transplant. Soon you may have your whole empire in the Palm of your hand!

About Freesky Online

Freesky Online is a fantastic Game that is based on battles in the sky between fierce and powerful airships. The official website has released on 14th March. In Freesky Online, you can either create an invincible military empire or become a wealthy commercial empire. The distinct SLG strategies will bring you a unique gaming experience.

Freesky Online brings an all new entertainment experience to players. The boring leveling routine of monster killing does not apply to Freesky Online, as you are not required to stay by your computer during the actual game play. It generally takes players about 10 minutes each day to issue orders to subordinates in their Empire so that their cities, citizens and Army will begin to produce materials, build castles and even fight enemies.
