Brink Devs Moving to F2P, Unveil Strategy Action Game (VID)
Speaking to Gamasutra,
Splash Damage explained its overall goal to offer gamers connected online experiences that are both high-quality and free-to-play.
CEO Paul Wedgwood said:
“You have this market of gamers, whether they’re playing on iPhones or on PCs, who for most part are being exploited by absolute free-to-play crap through compulsion loop mechanics, paywalls and pay-to-win strategies which serve nobody well.”
He went on to explain how the presence of this “crap” on the market has created a unique opportunity:
“So there’s both an opportunity for us to create stuff that is really good quality that we really love making that isn’t exploitative free-to-play crap, but at the same time to produce the types of games that large publishers wouldn’t option – they simply wouldn’t be the kinds of things that they’d want to make. Perhaps because the kind of money that they’d make wouldn’t be enough to turn their lights on.”
Splash Damage also unveiled its first F2P title, RAD Soldiers, a turn-based strategy action game that promises to be “high-quality”, with connected experiences set to be one one of the game’s key aspects. It’ll be coming soon to iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

Does everything on iOS need to be cutesy and cuddly like Angry Birds?
