Sega Announces Heroki Available in North America, Latin America, Europe, Korea, China, and Japan
Jul 2 15
SEGA announced that Heroki™ is now available in North America, Latin America, Europe, Korea, China, and Japan. Developed by independent game developer Picomy™ and published by SEGA, Heroki is available exclusively on the App Store for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch for $7.99. The Picomy team composed the dynamic soundtrack and sound effects that play into the imaginative world of Heroki and change to match the environment. For instance, if Heroki is flying nearby the harbor, a player will hear the pirate whistling a tune to the rhythm of the music, or when he’s near the farm, there will be a different tune with a banjo also on rhythm. Set in a whimsical universe full of flight and fantasy, Heroki challenges and delights players with fun and intuitive touch controls and engaging gameplay. An action-adventure game, players take the role of the propeller-headed hero, Heroki. Using the wind to fly, freefall, dash, and bash across beautiful 3D rendered sky-islands, jungles, seas and deserts, Heroki is on a quest to save the peaceful sky village of Levantia.
