We know Stan Lee as the creator of mega popular characters such as the X-Men, The Avengers, Spiderman, The Incredible Hulk and many more. What we don’t know him as is a game creator…until now. Over the weekend, a new trailer emerged on Youtube showing us a hero defending Earth from an invading army of aliens. The trailer showed off Stan Lee narrating the ordeal and some gameplay and the title Verticus.
Today, Stan Lee decided to lift the curtain on this mysterious project at his very own Comickaze Expo. Verticus is a brand new game for IOS that centers us around a brand new hero known as Verticus. Verticus’s name comes from makes him unique. He falls, literally. Stan Lee was interviewed at the expo and revealed that Verticus’s mission is to stop this invading alien race from blowing up the Earth and only he can do it with the aid of his mission commander voiced by none other than Stan Lee himself.
Now at first glance Verticus seems like your average freefall game but Stan Lee assures us that this is not the case as the game will be including phases that will “go on and on”.”After this does as well as we’re sure it will, we will launch Phase 2, where our hero has to do other things to save the Earth that will be even tougher. But by then, those who bought Phase 1 will have developed their skills and they’ll be ready to save the Earth in a more complex way. By the time we’re up to Phase 5 or 6, you’ll have to be an atomic scientist to even handle this game!”
Stan Lee was also asked what drew him into the mobile gaming market to which he said “Mobile platforms are going to become the biggest things of all for entertainment. It’s so all-encompassing, and everyone’s getting into it. Everybody wants to play mobile games, and that’s why we think that ours is just the perfect game.” Could this mean that Verticus is the first of many Stan Lee games? Stay tuned to Analog Addiction find out more in the coming months.
