American McGee and Spicy Horse launch "Crazy Fairies" today.
Crazy Fairies, a free-to-play cross-platform battler featuring deranged versions of fairytale characters, releases today from American McGee's Spicy Horse Games on various browser platforms.
Crazy Fairies, rendered on the Unity 3D engine, launched on Facebook, indie games portal Kongregate.com, and the Spicy Horse official website. The game will also come to iOS and Android devices in one month. The game uses a single code across all operating systems as well as the company's own server to allow players on different platforms to play together in real time. Players can also purchase virtual goods on one platform for use on another.
In Crazy Fairies, players pit crazed fairytale characters against each other in turn-based battles similar to Team 17's Worms.
"We see this as the next step. We captured all of the pieces - multiplayer, cross-platform, tablets, and phones – in one title," McGee told VentureBeat. "The economy all blends together."
