DeNA Flashes Back to '90s Los Angeles and Reveals Arcade Shooter Mobile Game Lawless
SAN FRANCISCO - October 22, 2013 - DeNA unveiled that Lawless, a photorealistic arcade-style shooter game, is in development for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Players can preregister for the free-to-play game now and obtain an exclusive Glock 17 Dual Wield in-game weapon when it's released worldwide on the App Store.
Set in 1990s Los Angeles, Lawless delivers fast paced cover-to-cover gun battles where the player is cast as a high-end professional criminal, climbing the ranks of the underworld. Each mission in Lawless takes the player through levels modeled after real world locations as they aim, shoot and choose their path through dangerous missions such as bank robberies, assassination assignments and gang shootouts using simple touch and gesture controls.
The game is being developed by EightPixelsSquare in cooperation with DeNA's Scattered Entertainment studio in Stockholm, Sweden under the leadership of industry veteran and free-to-play visionary Ben Cousins. EightPixelsSquare was founded by key members of Eurocom who previously developed the critically acclaimed arcade shooter console game Dead Space: Extraction.
"Lawless is an intense, skillful game designed as an ode to classic 'light gun' shooters and filled with the retro Californian feel of '90s bank robber movies," said Ben Cousins, head of DeNA's European studio operations and general manager of the Scattered Entertainment studio. "It's been a great experience collaborating with the talented team involved with Dead Space: Extraction to bring a cinematic arcade shooter experience to mobile."
