Posted in Releases and Updates on Nov 19, 2013
Revealed today at Google's Glass Hackathon event in San Francisco, Spellista is an interactive word puzzle game that allows players to solve word scrambles in nine environments or make their own puzzle levels to share with friends on Glass. Developed as part of Google's Glass GDK beta program, Spellista also includes exclusive features created by Glu's cross-platform development team such as peer-to-peer messaging and voice tutorial functionality.
"Spellista represents a major shift in interactive digital content and we are proud to support Google as a Glass beta partner," said Niccolo de Masi, CEO of Glu Mobile. "The opportunity to develop for Glass exemplifies Glu's technology strength and commitment to creating original content for innovative platforms."
Spellista highlights the intuitive functionality of the Glass gyroscope, accelerometer, camera, and voice recognition while also providing a sharable experience. Players use head controls for virtually hands-free participation as they explore nine unique levels of native gameplay. Glu also developed Glass-to-Glass sharing, allowing players to create and send new levels to other users through the Glass camera and voice recognition.
