Freak Factory, the upcoming game from Independent game developer Richard Lord, will be released on the Apple, Google and Amazon stores on 27th July 2015. And, The game will be launched on the Windows Phone Store later in August.
In Freak Factory, the player takes control of a factory where Freaks are made. Their challenge is to make as many Freaks as possible before running out of space. The game combines the physics of a game like pool with the space packing challenge of packing your suitcase to go on holiday, with a bunch of cute critters thrown in for good measure.
Freak Factory is a non-violent game aimed at all age groups. It features the re-playability of old arcade classics, but with a more thoughtful, calmer game mechanic that relies on strategy and planning rather than fast reactions. “As I get older, I am more attracted to games that encourage thought” says Lord. Freak Factory is easy to pick up, and suitable for children and adults of all ages. In beta testing, players progressed steadily towards higher scores as they discovered new strategies.
Freak Factory is free to play with a time restriction and features a single one-off in-app-purchase that removes the time restriction and unlocks some new Freaks.
