London-based developer The Secret Police has a curious proposition for mobile gamers. What they’re doing with Dragon’s Watch is to try and make a social RPG, the kind that’s been mega-popular in Asian markets but hasn’t necessarily ruled the charts in the west, but aim for a western audience. With a western development team targeting western gamers, they want to try and appeal to an audience that hasn’t necessarily spent a lot of money on social RPGs. Yet, their early work looks pretty solid, with some quality animations, and promising one-handed gameplay. Oh, and Dragon’s Watch will not require an internet connection:
You’ll roll out a squad of 6 heroes from a selection of hundreds that you can collect. There’s potions to craft, and myraid bosses to defeat as well. You can pre-regsiter for the game right now. The Secret Police is chaired by Ian Livingstone of Fighting Fantasy fame, and features Ric Moore, who won a BAFTA for Facebook game Monstermind with Mike Bithell and Henrique Olifiers. Keep an eye out for this one in the coming months.
