    Coming to iOS later this month, Starship proudly present Playworld Superheroes!

    Starship is the new studio from Martin Kenwright, founder of Evolution Studios and D.I.D, and creator of MotorStorm. Founded in 2013, the team holds veteran developers from Studio Liverpool, Bizarre Creations and Evolution Studios within its ranks. The team have collectively devised or delivered over 70 console games and platform launch titles, such as WipEout, WRC, and Formula 1. The studio's first game is Playworld, a mobile children's adventure series in which craft and creativity open new worlds of possibility. The first in the series is Playworld Superheroes.


    Touch Arcade have just shared our teaser trailer , which reveals the first snippets of gameplay. The game is released later this month and we'll be unveiling more about the game in the run-up to launch.

    We'd love to hear what you guys think so far, especially from those of you who have kids of your own.

    So whats the gameplay like? Can we get a longer video perhaps ;)
  3. You can indeed, though it won't be finished until next week! We'll spill the beans then!
  4. Wow this looks really promising.
  5. @appunwrapper Thanks! We've been in development for a year, so we're really looking forward to getting it in people's hands. More gameplay revealed soon, hope you like it!

    congrats on the game and no IAP first day purchase for me.
  8. Thanks! It would appear we're going against the current trend, but we couldn't make the game we wanted to if we were trying to sell something to the players the whole time!
  9. Ha, I'll put it to the team. I'm going to need a superb lightning superhero name to sell the idea in though! Any ideas?

    Electro cute
  14. You've thought about this before! Ha, that's ace.
  15. I'll put these on file for the names of future Starship first borns!
  16. We're glad people are liking our stance on in-app purchases, it's really important to us. We just want to be upfront - pay once and play forever.
  17. Electro Cute is outstanding for a kid's game.

    Could you share any info?

    Such as a few simple things. Is combat real time or is it turn based? ( id say real time based on the small snippets). How customizable is our hero? Can we make multiple heroes?

    The game looks awesome so I'm very curious about it.
  19. Thanks! The combat is real-time, you are correct!

    In this installment of Playworld, the player gets to customise the entire superhero suit from the ground up. You even get to design your own logo. Playworld is a series of adventures, and in this one we introduce kids (and young at heart adults!) to a crafting system that will become more complex as more adventures are released. In Playworld Superheroes, the visual identity of the hero is what sets it apart, but everyone has the same powers at their disposal, providing that they work hard enough to level-up. The customisation affects the look and feel of the game.

    You can change how you look in Playworld as often as you'd like, but you play as one hero throughout the adventure.
