So Much Drama Studios, the trendy new gaming company, launched its first in a series of unique mobile games, Fireflies! This 'sit back and unwind' game is targeted for all ages and is available for free today on the App Store and will later sell for $0.99.
Fireflies! lets users catch fireflies with bursts of light at the tap of a finger. Once a firefly enters a burst of light, it illuminates its own light causing a chain reaction of fireflies lighting up the sky. The hand-drawn forest sceneries and relaxing music put players in a beautiful, one of a kind fantasy world. 'There's an addictive nature to the game when the visual and audio come together so smoothly' says Jeff Meador, founder of So Much Drama Studios. The game is unique in its ability to entertain young toddlers, older children, teenagers and adults alike, bridging the age gap most games can't.
The idea derived from Meador's childhood, catching fireflies at his grandparents' house. 'I wanted to create a game that moved away from a lot of the frantic action that is common out there.' notes Meador. 'For me, playing a game on my phone is a bit of a break and I wanted something that had a more calming tone to it.'
So Much Drama Studios teamed up with visual designer Lee Cosgrove for the remarkable backdrop designs as well as Bay Area Sound for original ambient music and interactive sound. The game offers three playing modes, Story Mode, Arcade and Zen with six different kinds of fireflies. Story Mode offers 60 levels to complete, Arcade Mode for a more challenging session with limited number of bursts to use and Zen Mode, with no score or boundaries, just easy going firefly catching.
This family friendly application rewards its users with wallpapers and avatars when sharing scores on Facebook and Twitter. So Much Drama Studios is already producing their second mobile application, an endless runner game with a new hero, aimed to stir up the gaming field. The game will unveil some daring content and break-through technology.
Fireflies! 1.1 is free for a limited time and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category.
