Mac Developers Discuss Plans For iPhone
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Macworld has published a new article exploring developer plans for entering the new iPhone gaming market. The article includes comments from Aspyr's Glenda Adams, Pangea's Brian Greenstone, and Freeverse's Bruce Morrison.

Freeverse producer Bruce Morrison thinks that planting a stake early is going to be vital to Freeverse’s success on the iPhone.

Freeverse, which develops and publishes games and other software for the Mac, is starting out its iPhone efforts in an area it’s already comfortable with: games. First up is a 3-D racing game called Wingnuts Moto Racer. A series of sports games, branded under the Flick Sports moniker, will follow.

Morrison feels that Freeverse’s efforts stand out from some other iPhone software developers, many of whom are repurposing existing products for the iPhone.

“There doesn’t seem to be as much truly original game development for the iPhone as I had hoped for,” Morrison said.

Freeverse understands the risks involved in developing an unproven property for a new platform, however, so the company hopes that by being one of the first publishers in the market, they’ll be able to claim some mindshare among iPhone users looking for fun and innovative games for their handhelds.
