Midnight Star

We’re pretty fired up over here at Industrial Toys. After putting up a shingle in February, we’ve been building the team, our systems and our first game. And we’re excited to finally share what we’re working on — a reimagining of the sci-fi shooter for touch called Midnight Star! Take a look:

Quick answers from the teaser trailer’s FAQ:

  • No, you don’t die in the first five seconds of the game, but it does get ugly
  • Yes, you can register now at midnightstargame.com to secure your credentials and get early– well– everything

If you get the newsletter, you know we’ve been banging away on R&D with nailing down a satisfying control scheme, developing really cool and interesting gameplay systems and weaving an outrageous story with awesome characters. Now, we can dig into all of this with you, and we’ll be showing an obscene amount of content in the coming weeks and months, starting with an accidental documentary in the next day or two, some posters we made because we couldn’t help ourselves next week and and an ongoing slew of concept artwork from Lead Concept Artist (and comics superstar and slappee) Mike Choi. Here are two to get started: one of our hero and exocommunications specialist Charlie Campbell, who you’ll be hearing a lot about from ECD Hardy LeBel, and a frightening shot of our Dust Ascended bad guy you probably noticed trying to do you wrong from the trailer.

 

Our totally unreasonable goal is to completely change the expectations core gamers have for their mobile games, and with that comes a bunch of dialogue about what we’re doing and whether it’s gonna work or not. If you’re not already, follow us on Twitter for updates/banter and on Facebook for deeper discussion strings (we will answer every good  question/topic or die trying). Soon, we’ll roll out a robust website for Midnight Star with all sorts of the usual community toys, but until then, we’ll be talking about what we’re up to here on the blog and on those channels.

So let us know what you think and come back often– the development of this game is going to be a combination joy/debacle and we’ll share it all along the way …

  41. At this stage in development, do you know if Morning Star will be compatible with a 2nd generation iPod Touch? (I haven’t upgraded in ages) And please tell me there’s multiplayer!

    • Hey there,

      Unfortunately, Midnight* Star will not be compatible with a second gen iPod Touch :( — however, there is going to be TONS of kick ass multiplayer. Stay tuned for more developments!

      Thanks,
      Johnny

      • hey I’m super excited for this game to come out! I must know tho, will this game also be supported on the kindle fire hd, because while I do have an iPhone 4s, I’d prefer to play it on the bigger screen of the tablet and I’m too poor to afford an iPad… Either way I’ll be getting the game, just like to have more options. Anyways goodluck with development guys!

        • Hey G4L,

          We don’t have plans for the Kindle Fire just yet, but we DO plan on making Midnight* Star awesome enough for you to enjoy on any iOS device — including your iPhone 4S :) Stay tuned on our site and we’ll post all updates we have on the matter.

          Thanks,
          Johnny
