ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — This Saturday, Albuquerque-based entertainment media company, SP Entertainment will release its first video game, “Katastrogon 3D: the Aeolian Order,” on Apple, Amazon and Android devices.
The block breaker-style game is the 15-year-old company’s first foray into the gaming world.
The company has previously worked on various projects with Hoffmantown Church, the University of New Mexico, Central New Mexico Community College and the New Mexico College Awareness Coalition.
Katastrogon 3D will involve game play along the lines of classic games like Atari’s Breakout, but it will also include a touch of ancient Greek flair, along with in-game elements like Power-Ups, which allow players to throw fireballs at blocks. Players will destroy shapes by bouncing a ball off of a virtual paddle, similar to video game classic, Pong.
Katastrogon had a rocky start, with SP Entertainment forced to change graphics engines in the middle of production, but it was ready for beta testing last year.
