The Countdown is On: In Time – The Mobile Game Goes Free for 24 Hours
Los Angeles, California – With the release of IN TIME only twenty-four hours away, New Regency today announced that the movie’s thrilling 3D action mobile game will be available for free download all day Friday via the iTunes App Store.
Published by Fox Digital Entertainment, in conjunction with New Regency, the IN TIME mobile game puts players in the foreboding, near-future world of IN TIME, where time itself is a finite commodity. In the game, players control hero, Will Salas (Justin Timberlake), as he tries to escape the evil Minutemen. Players score points across sixteen different levels by sprinting, jumping and dodging waves of obstacles and assailants. Players can increase their scores by acquiring “time capsules” and by giving time to those in need – but being too generous, or being caught by the Minutemen, may mean your time is up.
The game is designed as a fun, accessible way to bring the audience closer to the film’s world and action. “We really enjoyed distilling IN TIME’s high-adrenaline action into an exciting gaming experience” said game developer RoboModo’s David Michicich. “We used Epic’s Unreal Engine 3, one of the most powerful graphics engines, to create an experience that captures the film’s urgency, both in the feel of the game play as well as its striking visuals.”
The game deal – the first of its kind for Regency – was put together in collaboration with Union Entertainment, a management/production company specializing in videogames.
For those who don’t want to “waste time” waiting to download the game for free next Friday, it’s available now for $.99 at the iTunes AppStore. The sale will last until 11:59pm on Friday the 28th at which point the free clock will expire… and your time will have run out.
