GDC Austin: Official ‘Skee-ball’ Game Coming from Freeverse

If you’re like me, you may not have even known that “Skee-Ball" was an actual brand. A fact that I’m sure Skee-Ball Amusement Games is none too happy about. Regardless, Freeverse has acquired an actual license to produce an official Skee-ball game for the iPhone.

Celebrating its 100th anniversary, Skee-Ball has been enjoyed by generations of players from boardwalks to arcades, and now Freeverse brings the fun to your iPhone! Developed by Graveck, the game’s excellent physics and 3D graphics make rolling the signature Skee-Ball an extremely fun and exciting experience.

Freeverse has implemented a ticket-prize system allowing you to buy prizes and even different ball skins. But given the number of unofficial (and high quality) skee ball variants in the App Store, it’s hard to predict how much demand there will be for an officially branded version.

Update: The developer of this official Skee-Ball game is the same developer as 10 balls 7 Cups [$0.99] which may have been the single best iPhone game trailer ever.
