Although there are still small producers, the mobile market is more and more like consoles. The French company Oh BiBi announced yesterday its newest game, FRAG, a shooting game for Android and iOS, whose budget should reach the mark of 21 million dollars.
The game trailer leaves no doubt – the target is Fortnite Mobile – and according to the video below, the game will “destroy” Epic’s success on mobile phones. Really?
Despite the provocation, FRAG is more of a “Hero Shooter” than a “Battle Royale”. So most likely he will not “destroy” Fortnite, even though it is quite a different game.
The look is ultra-colored and the differential looks like it’s going to be accessibility. FRAG looks like a game with simple commands (it has up to automatic mode for shots), and that will work on literally any smartphone.
In gameplay, it’s more for a mix of Team Fortress + Halo, with places to jump and passages to divert from enemies. The game scenario looks like a soccer field, with “5v5” matches.
The 5v5 deceives at first sight. In fact, FRAG is a 1v1 game. The player mounts a 5 character “deck” and takes control of any of the characters until he dies, and then you move on to the next character on your team.
Going back to the business world, we have some more interesting information. The investment fund for the game consists of companies like Supercell, Teatime and Bossa Studios, with Korea participation.
Oh BiBi, whose first arcade racing title SUP ( Android and iOS ) has already attracted more than 30 million downloads so far, is targeting the billion-dollar branch of mobile shooting games. According to the site MMOCulture, the giants of the market have already profited more than 9 billion dollars with mobile shooting games.
Relying on investment, co-founder of Oi BiBi and COO, Martial Valery, said they will challenge Fortnite’s claim for best mobile shooting game. Interestingly, FRAG has been in development for only 6 months. Oh, BiBi has added a social platform within the game that allows you to share, simply, plays on other “real” social networks.
