Press release: Steel Media launches the Official Pocket Gamer Guide to Galaxy on Fire 2 – out now
October 2, 2012
Interactive publications designed as companion guides for the biggest mobile gaming releases
PRESS RELEASE | For Immediate Release
Bath, UK – 2nd October 2012 – Do you know your Tyrfing Blaster from your 128MJ Railgun? Can you pinpoint the tactical advantages of each ship in the Nivelian fleet? Would you know whether trading in Pan Whiskey is more profitable than sticking with Y’mirr Schnapps?
No? Then you need the Official Pocket Gamer Guide to Galaxy on Fire 2. Published by Pocket Gamer parent company Steel Media, and produced in association with Fishlabs Entertainment, it’s the essential companion to the GOF2 gameworld – including expansion packs Valkyrie and the just-released Supernova, of course – and the first in a new line of delightfully interactive and individually tailored publications designed to help take a player’s your mobile gaming experience to the very limit of human enjoyment.
Each PG Guide aims to deliver a comprehensive package to aid both the newcomer and the seasoned fan: From series backgrounds, mission logs, complete in-game item breakdowns, tactical advice, character rundowns, to gameworld exposés, developer interviews (with expert insider tips, no less), sneak peeks at upcoming updates, and more – it’s all here. And all wrapped up in a layer of interactive deliciousness that only a digital magazine can provide.
“Kicking off the PG Guides with one of the most intricate gameworlds currently available on the App Store presented a considerable but gratifying challenge, and one we’ve been able to meet thanks to Fishlabs’s excellent cooperation throughout the project,” said Pocket Gamer Guides editor-in-chief Joao Diniz Sanches. “There is huge satisfaction in creating an intuitive app that not only complements the overall experience of a particular title but also helps maximise a player’s in-game enjoyment.
“We have a number of other guides currently in the production pipeline and look forward to bringing those to life in a manner that will both delight and – most of all – help fans of these games.”
“Hardly anyone does a better job of writing about mobile games than Pocket Gamer,” said Michael Schade, CEO of Fishlabs Entertainment. “Hence, we knew right away that they were the perfect partner for us in this undertaking. In terms of content and layout, the Official GOF2 Guide HD is absolutely stunning and we’re sure that it will come in more than handy for every Galaxy on Fire 2 fan out there. This is without a doubt the best looking and most complete GOF2 encyclopaedia on the iPad!”
So the next time you’re stuck, remember you don’t have to be. If there’s a Pocket Gamer Guide for your game of choice, then playing nirvana awaits.
The Official Pocket Gamer Guide to Galaxy on Fire 2 – HD Edition is available now on iPad (with an iPhone version coming soon), and can be downloaded from the App Store here.
