High Steaks

high steaks

A mobile F2P game for Android and iOS.

High Steaks was our first title. The game was released in 2013 and showcases our ambition and ability to produce games for all ages. Within the game a number of technical competencies are shown, from in-app purchasing and advertising to optimised visuals and social media integration. High Steaks will always be a part of Future Fossil history and marks a point from which the business has grown and matured in the passing years.

The Climb

the climb

A Creative Scotland funded game exploring the concept of 'Passive Gaming'.

The Climb underlines our ability to create and explore new concepts, enjoy what we do and to contribute to the creative landscape of the games industry. This game was created to explore the idea of 'Passive Gaming' - a term coined to describe a method of interaction which allows a player to contribute to a game without needing to subscribe to the traditional relationships on which games rely. The Climb utilises wifi technology to allow users to generate content for a game through their presence alone. An individual with a wifi enabled phone is able to create a random character without ever having to install an app, turn on a service or pick up a controller.

A Year of Change
