The Hottest Full Scale 3D Action Adventure Role Playing Game to Hit iPad, iPhone and Android Devices

Game Scorpion Inc. enters the App market with their first video game titled Melina’s Conquest, a 3D Role Playing Action Adventure Game that’s not only fun and challenging but also won’t break the bank!

Easy, Fun, Budget Price, Graphics, Music – As prices of mobile devices have been falling, more and more people have been purchasing apps for their new devices. What was not possible on mobile devices just several years ago has now become a reality. 3D graphics and high quality gaming at a budget price for the masses was once a dream on these small pocket gadgets. Many new developers usually did not stand a chance against console style games, but the new app markets have changed that completely to allow for mobile developers to create their games for the masses. Now the mobile app gold rush has been booming and jumping onto that band wagon is newcomer Game Scorpion Inc. with their first offering called Melinas Conquest, a full 3D action adventure role playing game (RPG) for iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Android mobile devices.

“We developed Melinas Conquest with one thing in mind…FUN!”, says Abhinav Gupta, Lead Developer and CEO of Game Scorpion Inc.

“Gameplay was a major item that we looked at with this game. I have personally seen many games out there that have high end 3D graphics and look ‘pretty’ on the screen, but when it came time to play the game, it was either boring or very confusing to play.”

Melinas Conquest features easy to use controls and an easy to manipulate camera. A single button is given for attacking enemies and a simple timer and ranking system.

“The goal of the game is simple, you just need to run from one end of the level to the other side without getting killed by all the various traps and enemies that pop up. At the same time along the way you will have to defeat major bosses and can follow along with an interesting storyline that ties into our future games.”

So what makes this game different from others in the market? “Price, levels and gameplay!”, says Gupta, “Many games that feature 3D graphics in the App Store or the Android Marketplace usually go for around $4.99 for their full versions. We are at a mere $2.99 price and offer 20 levels of gameplay which in most cases is far higher than what others are offering. We also make our game easy for players to play. You get value for your money and a high quality game at the end of the day that will satisfy even the most frugal shopper! Also, no two players will play the game the same way as the levels are auto-generated.”

It took Gupta and his team approximately six months to develop the game from the ground up. “There were times where I even thought we were not going to be able to get the game done…it was 16-20 hour days for myself every day for the past six months, praying daily hoping that our game would release and would be successful.”

A lot of small independent game developers like Gupta do not earn any money during development. This can be quite a challenge to have no income hoping that an app will hit off. In this market, apps can be made over a weekend and make millions or can take months and make nothing at all. “It’s a coin toss”, says Gupta, “but I personally believe that if we focus on quality games, sooner or later our players will pay for that quality and our games will start to increase in popularity.”

As a Computer Science Graduate from Ryerson University Gupta took the leap of faith into the app world at the beginning of 2011 and has finally made that dream come true. “It was a lot of hard work, a lot of faith in God and a great team behind me. Lots of support from my wife and family really helped out.”

Melinas Conquest is now live on the Apple App Store and on the Android Marketplace and can be purchased as of October 15th, 2011, for just $2.99.

Harmony Bay, a novel by Tom Gahan, breaks top six percent in Kindle sales

Long Island NY author Tom Gahan’s novel, Harmony Bay, hit the top six percent in sales on Amazon.com’s Kindle Edition in January 2011.

Riverhead, NY, January 29, 2011 — Long Island NY author Tom Gahan’s novel, Harmony Bay, hit the top six percent in sales on Amazon.com’s Kindle Edition in January 2011.

“I was pleased to see Harmony Bay do so well so soon after its release thanks to Amazon’s Kindle Edition,” Tom Gahan said. Amazon reported that Harmony Bay, published by Outskirts Press in Denver, Colorado, hit the ranking in Amazon Kindle Store’s more than 750,000 titles. “There’s been a shift in the traditional book publishing industry. I’m told that in August 2010, printed hard-copy book sales fell thirty percent while e-reader edition sales grew by 138 percent. This was before the holiday shopping rush that saw e-readers and Kindle readers given as the most popular gift. It will only be a matter of time before traditional publishers and booksellers are a thing of the past.”

Gahan further pointed out the disparity between authors and traditional booksellers. “Self-publishing guru Dan Poynter has said that bookstores are a lousy place to sell books. He’s correct. Historically, many traditional publishers, agents and booksellers have taken advantage of authors. It is still the case, with some booksellers charging local authors a stocking fee to sell their book. Even some POD (Print On Demand) publishers aren’t without criticism. Some charge exorbitant amounts to authors for marketing materials and certain services. The tables are about to turn, led by the introduction of e-readers.”

309 pages in length, Harmony Bay: An Adventurous Slice of Waterfront Life Where Mystery Surrounds History… is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the action and adventure category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Harmony Bay meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $18.95.

About the author:
Tom Gahan has run the gamut from feature writer to newspaper columnist to speechwriter. His freelance writing has helped build the image of various corporate clients. Additionally, many know Gahan as the creator of New York State’s largest outdoor music festival. This accomplishment earned him accolades and numerous awards including the prestigious Gold Key Award from his hometown Chamber of Commerce and two citations from the U.S. Congress. He was also named the 2009 Civic Leader of the Year for his humanitarian work. He is happily married and lives on Long Island’s East End in New York. Visit him at http://www.tomgahan.com.
