Meet Middle Manager of Justice, First Mobile Game By Double Fine

By   /   3 years ago


The incredible minds over at Double Fine Productions have always kept to the console and PC platforms when developing new games.  So it was a bit of a shock today when, head of Double Fine, Tim Schaffer announced their first mobile entry would be coming to iDevices soon.

Titled Middle Manager of Justice it will be a member of the Free-to-Play simulation genre along the same lines as Farmville or Jurassic Park: Park Builder.  You’ll be placed in charge of running the front desk of a regional branch of The Justice Corporation; a company that hires, trains, and outfits up and coming super heroes.  Along with managing your super hero clientell, you’ll also be growing the business by building new facilities for your heroes to train and upgrading them along the way.

As you set up missions and send your hired heroes on their way, they’ll earn cash which you can then pour into upgrades, or defensive gear, or even ice cream.  As with all games of this genre you’ll also be earning a second currency, which in this game is called “Superium”.  You’ll earn this at regular intervals as you progress, but can also be purchased with real life money through the app.

Don’t grab those pitchforks yet, though! The in app purchase balance is weighed heavily in the player’s favor. As you send your heroes out to fight random bad dudes, you’ll eventually bring on a boss fight. These bosses dish out a ton of Superium for your hero-hiring and training needs.

Project lead Kee Chi tells us that nailing this balance has been a big deal.

It’s been really important to me throughout this project that we allow all players to play the game as much as they want.  The core experience of the game should be fun for the non paying player as well as the paying player. The game needs to be fun for everyone.

He continues by saying:

You can always earn coins and Superium through many avenues in the game, but if you do choose to pay for IAP, you can power up your heroes quicker, get new super heroes earlier and experience the content at a faster pace.

On top of all that, the usual Double Fine humor is all over the game and will definitely keep you chuckling as you play.  There isn’t a release date as of yet but keep an eye on Segment Next for more info as it arrives!
