Everywear Games wants to be the first, and maybe only, game studio dedicated to creating mobile titles optimized for smartwatches. The Finnish company was created by a team of executives who have worked on Angry Birds and other popular mobile titles.
So far there have only been a handful of games announced for the upcoming Apple Watch. NimbleBit, the developer behind Tiny Tower, has announced that they're developing a word game called Letterpad, and Monkube plans to release a smartphone version of its game BlastBall MAX. Besides the obvious quiz games and virtual pets making a come back, there doesn't seem much else you can create for a 38mm device. With a powerful list of top gaming investors in the world behind them, Everywear Games hopes to change that notion and prove that the Apple Watch and other wearable devices are viable gaming platforms.
“We see wearable tech as the most exciting new platform of 2015,” said Aki Järvilehto, CEO and co-founder of Everywear Games. “As developers, this year presents an unrivaled opportunity to craft completely original gaming experiences for a global audience.”
