Spermania: Palestinian Developer Celebrates Father's Day with Provocative Debut
RAMALLAH, Palestine, June 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Palestine's first venture-backed gaming company, PinchPoint, is excited to announce the launch of "Spermania," an addictive, fun mobile game in which users race a sperm past acid pools, viruses, bacteria and other sperm to try to fertilize an egg. "Spermania" is available for free download on major App Stores - just in time for Father's Day.
"Spermania" is based on the only race that really matters--the journey of a brave little sperm's epic struggle to create life.
In this first pack, players will outsmart the female reproductive system and battle the forces of the immune system--cunning viruses, sneaky white blood cells and sizzling acid pools.
Just as in the real-life race, where a sperm's odds are 300-million-to-one, winning takes stamina and skill. Players will have to master both slow and fast play modes, evade obstacles, collect vital 'sugars' for energy, and beat out competing sperms to reach the finish line.
"Spermania" is not just challenging, it's also fun - with clever caricatures and sound effects and integrated social features. The anticipation of reaching the final goal will keep players coming back for more.
Release Date: June 15, 2014
Part of Palestine's growing startup scene, PinchPoint is the first local gaming company to secure venture funding. A notoriously challenging industry coupled with the difficulties of life under occupation are what drive PinchPoint's international ambitions. "Global gaming markets are already flooded, so if you want to shine, you have to come up with something outside of the norm," says CEO Khaled Abualkheir. "Being Palestinian, even life's daily routine demands innovation," he adds.
Based in Ramallah, PinchPoint's five-person team plans to release two full-scale titles over the next year and six smaller, experimental games developed in weekend marathon sessions.
PinchPoint is backed by Sadara Ventures, Palestine's first venture capital fund. Speaking of the investment, Sadara Founding Partner Saed Nashef said: "With the release of "Spermania," PinchPoint's team is demonstrating its ability to come up with unique and engaging games that can compete in regional and international markets."
PinchPoint Inc. is a Ramallah, Palestine-based game developer whose recent releases include "Spermania", a fun, addictive game in which players race to fertilize an egg, and "Egghead Runaway", a fast-paced endless-runner game. For more information, visit http://www.pinchpoint.me.
