The Hunger Games: Girl On Fire Headed To iOS
The developer behind Canabalt teams with Lionsgate to create a game that'll launch alongside the upcoming film.
First, everyone we knew read the Harry Potter books. Then, they moved on to the A Song of Ice and Fire series. Now they're all about The Hunger Games, and so is Hollywood, with a movie from Lionsgate debuting March 23.
Now comes word there will be a video game...not on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, but iOS.
The news comes from Adam Saltsman, the guy behind the hit iPhone game, Canabalt. He joined forces with Lionsgate while creating an indie dream team to design The Hunger Games: Girl on Fire.
Little is known about the title, other than it involves running, but it's far from a Canabalt clone. Both marksmanship and strategy come into play.
Thus far, we've been too busy to read books (sad, we know), but perhaps we'll give The Hunger Games a go before the film (and game) arrive next month.
Meanwhile, we'll post updates for Girl on Fire as they become available.
