Developers from WIT Entertainment and Decane have come together to bring several new games to the iPhone platform under an as-yet-undecided brand name.

From the WIT Entertainment folks comes a 3D air hockey game called Balls of Steel for the iPhone.  The title is based on the Unity game engine, and is set to debut at the launch of the iTunes App Store in June.

According to the developer,

Balls of Steel is an air hockey like game where the aim is to shoot steel balls on the puck to direct him into the opponents goal. Different computer difficulty levels are available combined with superb graphics and sound fx.

This title seems particularly well suited to control by way of the iPhone's integrated accelerometer.  Let's hope that the development team takes full use of this feature.

Decane is readying Bubble Space,

...an ultra addictive bubble popper game with five different games modes, internet high scores and real physics. Aim is to click two or more balls of the same color that touch each other to let them explode. For each explosion new balls fall down into the container until it's full. Simple game concept, but highly addictive to play.

The team reports that the games are, at present, fully developed and tested and will be ready as iPhone apps once the Unity game engine's iPhone export feature arrives.  There is currently no information regarding the pricing of these titles.  Stay tuned for more on these titles.

    I find this stuff hilarious and completely non-credible because it is very clear according to anyone that's been accepted by apple into the development program that there is a STRICT NDA, and NO DEVELOPER OR COMPANY IS ALLOWED TO RELEASE SPECS, SCREENSHOTS, DESCRIPTIONS, or any such thing to anyone outside the company, or any press, or any "news" website. If this company actually was accepted by Apple they would have their acceptance revoked immediately if this story were true.

    @Katy, If you check the two company websites mentioned, you can find screenshots of the games in question running on platforms other than the iPhone. The article mentions that the developers are waiting for the Unity export-to-iPhone function to arrive before the games exist as true iPhone apps. All that said, I believe the two provided screenshots shown are, in fact, mock-ups based on existing work.

    @Katy ... I'm a game developer and I use the Unity game engine. These games are real and really will be available on the iPhone/Touch once Unity is capable of targeting/compiling for the iPhone (which will happen after the iPhone SDK is officially released by Apple in June).

    Also, downloading the iPhone SDK is a simple thing and doesn't require any strict NDA aggreements. The entire iPhone SDK and all of it capabilities are public information, nothing is being kept secret.

    Also, here is another "indie" game developer that is developing games for the iPhone.... http://www.cocoatouchgames.com/

    The developer (David Janik-Jones, founder of Widget Monkeys) isn't using Unity for these games, but he is a big Unity guy and will be using Unity for future games.
