WayForward Celebrates 25 Years of Games
Valencia, Calif. – 04/01/2015— WayForward is pleased to announce its next original game: "You Are The Winner! Go You!"
The game puts players in the boots of Gunster Megaboom, a mercenary from the 37th century sent back in time to stop time-travelers from preventing the apocalypse. Gunster is a danger-loving weapons expert, with a soft spot for latte foam art, who plays by NO ONE'S rules!
"The rules you play by are something new for us," explains WayForward's founder, Voldi Way. "People love our original characters and animation, but let's be honest - WayForward games aren't for babies. And we need to tap into that lucrative baby market if we're going to thrive another 25 years."
Creative Director Matt Bozon agrees. "With this project, we wanted a game that EVERYONE could appreciate. So we did extensive focus testing, with participants ranging from age 2 to 104. The results were surprising. Some players couldn't beat the bosses. Some couldn't defeat enemies. Others couldn't shoot. Or jump. Or move at all, really. One guy just hated pressing buttons. We've solved ALL of that."
The game was developed using WayForward's innovative new 'PlayForMe' technology, which enables gamers of literally any age and skill level to succeed. PlayForMe automatically collects coins, avoids obstacles, and defeats enemies and bosses before they ever get close.
"You Are The Winner! Go You!" comes out this Fall on PC and all major consoles. For more information on this title and all WayForward games, head to www.WayForward.com.
