Enter the Factory, Beat Down Bosses and Save the World! Watch the Launch Trailer (https://youtu.be/8UU_t-mdMFU) EMERYVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nexon and developer Neople have released Evil Factory, a mobile top-down action game that combines a retro 80's art style and an original electronic soundtrack with challenging modern arcade gameplay. Developed by a team of creative visionaries behind Dungeon Fighter Online, the hit side-scrolling arcade game, Evil Factory is available now as a free download on the App Store for iPhone and iPad and on Google Play for Android devices. Evil Factory skips over the cannon-fodder minions and throws players straight into challenging battles against huge 8-bit bosses. Each massive, screen-filling foe employs a challenging series of attacks that require players to react quickly and cleverly while using their arsenal of weapons and character boosts to survive each fast-paced battle. Evil Factory fuses detailed retro art and classic arcade gameplay with modern gameplay features including weapon upgrades, character progression, leaderboards and weekly events. “Evil Factory is a major passion project for us, showing off our distinct stylistic vision with gameplay that takes inspiration from some of our favorite arcade classics,” said Jaeho Hwang, Producer of Neople Games. “Our team’s creativity and imagination shines through each 8-bit pixel and over-the-top boss fight, and we can’t wait to share it with players around the world.” In the game, players will guide Leo, a short-tempered protagonist with a mind and mouth of his own, through an outrageous suicide mission to destroy the evil factory and its vile operators. Leo must take down monstrous weaponized animals on floor after floor of the evil factory on his journey to defeat the nefarious Kraken. “With Evil Factory, Neople has meshed modern gameplay mechanics with an uncanny retro arcade feeling for one of the most exciting, extraordinary and wild mobile games we’ve had the privilege of publishing,” said Lawrence Koh, General Manager at Nexon M. “It’s a truly unique gameplay experience which adds a brand new genre to Nexon’s expansive portfolio of AAA mobile titles, and players can expect new bosses, events and much more post-launch.” As a modern ode to classic arcade-styled games, Evil Factory features an original retro-themed synthesizer soundtrack by Jukio "Kuabee" Kallio, creator of the soundtracks for the cult hits Luftrausers and Nuclear Throne. If the art, music and intense boss battles aren’t nostalgic enough, Evil Factory harkens back to retro gaming through the miniature game cartridges which players can collect along their journey to unlock a variety of 8-bit arcade mini-games. Evil Factory can be downloaded on the App Store for iPhone and iPad and on Google Play for Android devices. About NEXON NEXON Co., Ltd.
