Glu Mobile unveils Spellista word game for Google Glass
Glu Mobile has introduced Spellista, its first game developed exclusively for Google Glass. The word and puzzle game allows players to solve scrambled words or make their own puzzles to share with friends on the Glass platform.
Spellista includes nine environments, and utilizes Glass’s gyroscope, accelerometer, camera and voice recognition technology. The game is hands-free, and includes Glass-to-Glass sharing, so users can create and send new levels to other players using the Glass camera and voice recognition.
“Spellista represents a major shift in interactive digital content and we are proud to support Google as a Glass beta partner,” said Niccolo de Masi, CEO of Glu Mobile, in a company statement. “The opportunity to develop for Glass exemplifies Glu’s technology strength and commitment to creating original content for innovative platforms.”
“Spellista turns gameplay into an instant communication platform by letting anyone make personalized, interactive content for their friends and family,” added Lian Amaris, Executive Producer of Spellista. “When players create unique puzzles for each other, the game becomes communal in a timely and meaningful way. If I’m on a flight or in a waiting room, playing a level made just for me by a loved one keeps us connected in that moment through gameplay.”
Spellista is now available through Google’s Glass website. More developers have started creating games for the Glass platform, including BrickSimple, which unveiled its Battleship-inspired game GlassBattle in July.
