February 25, 2021, San Mateo, California and Seoul, South Korea - Today, Devsisters, creator of the popular Cookie Run RPG series, reveals details on 2 new games that will introduce the brand to new audiences in 2 new game genres later this year. The first game, codenamed Project Mars, will be a 3D graphics city-builder game where players create and design their own virtual cities using bricks. The second game, codenamed Project Safe House, is a high-octane shooter game that will be Devsisters’ first Steam launch. 
 

Launching in Q3 of 2021, Project Mars is a free-to-play mobile construction simulation game where players use bricks to create their own virtual cities and explore their creations using a dynamic camera feature. For this highly-varied builder game, the developers plan to give players the freedom to create without limitations. Once players get past the tutorial, they’ll be able to start building in a safe space environment, regardless of their levels, for free. With strong social hooks, players use the ‘world map’ to find and explore other players’ cities and share ‘blueprints’ to re-create similar structures. The cute townspeople, called “Pipo” can be shared amongst friends to go to work for players to complete building jobs. As with all Devsisters games, visual elements are given a high-attention-to-detail, including a dramatic lighting shift from day into night.

 

More information about “Project Mars” will be provided on a landing page, available in mid-March, 2021.

 

Later this year, Devisisters will globally launch its first Steam game, codenamed Project Safe House. This will be the company’s first hardcore shooter game and platform expansion onto Steam. Inevitably, it will be darker than other Devsisters games as the violence won’t be limited to Cookie characters. In true Devsisters’ design style, the visuals will take center stage with monumental buildings and unique structures, taking full advantage of the PC platform. Fierce combat will force players into concealment, defense, and surprise attacks as they tap into the geographical features and spatial structures of buildings located in the middle of the city. Adding to the layers of game complexity and competition, the game will allow players to create their own game maps and hold competitions.
