July 2012Nekki Releases Vector on Facebook, iOS and Android in Q3 2012
Nekki, creators of hit titles such as Shadow Fight (24 Million Players), 11×11 Football Manager (11.5Million Players) and Gladiators (3 Million Players) launch their latest game, Vector.Vector is an exciting, arcade-style game featuring the player as the exceptional free runner whowon’t be held down by the system.
The game opens with a view into a totalitarian world wherefreedom and individually is nothing more than a distant dream. But the heart of a free runner isstrong, and you soon break free. Run, vault, slide and climb using extraordinary techniques basedon the urban ninja sport of Parkour all while being chased by “Big Brother” who’s sole purpose is tocapture you and bring you back.
Dmitry Terekhin, Nekki Founder and CEO knows where to look for inspiration. “We really likedynamic arcade games. After the success of Shadow Fight, we wanted to continue work in thisgenre, but with an entirely new spin. We reached out to focus groups chosen from Shadow Fight’splayers to find out where they had interests.
Somewhat unexpectedly, there was a very clearstandout: That community was rabid for a great parkour game. We got pretty excited about thatidea too. Parkour matches nicely with our arcade/sports games preference, so the concept seemeda perfect fit for us and our players. Parkour also offers a great opportunity to demonstrate anotherof Nekki’s competitive advantages — the realistic animation technology we built for Vector’sspiritual forerunner, Shadow Fight.”
