Spellspire

 

10tons Ltd. is preparing to launch their brand new word game, Spellspire, a bit later this month. The game is coming to Steam, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita. You are a tiny wizard questing to reach the top of a 100-floor tower. The gameplay involves a grid containing 10 letters. If you create a valid word, it will shoot out of your wand as a spell blast. Longer words make more powerful magic blasts.

Monsters unfortunate enough to be hit by your magic will drop gold and other loot. This can be used between levels to get wands, hats, and robes that are more potent. Some may feature various special magic effects and abilities, too. The PlayStation 4 and Vita versions of the game will launch on May 23rd (SIEA) / May 24th (SIEE).  The Steam launch is May 23rd, and for Xbox One, the date is May 26th. You can already pre-order the Xbox-One version here. The game also has a lunch discount of -15% from May 5th to June 1st.

Tero Alatalo, CEO of 10tons Ltd. says, “Spellspire is an utterly charming and entertaining game. It’s uniquely thrilling to try to put together words at a feverish pace to blast away a goblins and zombies, and the role playing game aspects of the game work really well as well. It really pays off to figure out the best robes, wands, and items for the toughest levels!”

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
