Kirkland-based UIEvolution is known for developing cross-platform applications for companies like Toyota and Samsung. Now, they’re taking what they’ve learned and delving into the gaming world.
‘Dr. Dinkle’s Defense,’ is the company’s new tablet-based tower defense game, the first in a series of similar style titles UIEvolution plans to develop. The game features 50 levels across five different environments with the ability to purchase add-ons and utilize user-generated content. For now, the game is available only on the iPad and costs $1.99.
“Much like our product and application work, we started by placing the user experience at the center of the game’s development, creating an easy-to-learn and simple-to-control game that is both easy to learn and challenging to complete,” UIEvolution COO Travis Beaven said in a press release. “UIEvolution has always provided cutting-edge mobile solutions focusing on generating the best user experience possible, whether developing applications for Fortune 100 companies or mobile app games like ‘Dr. Dinkle’s Defense’.”
Profitable and growing, UIEvolution was sold in March 2004 to Japanese gaming company Square Enix, and three years later was spun off as an independent company in a management-led buyout that included Ruff, Intel Capital and others. The company is headquartered in Kirkland with offices in Honolulu and Tokyo.
