Renown Entertainment Launches Independent Studio To Power Up Game Development


Renown Entertainment’s First Game “Waves: Survivor” is Now Available on the App Store

Vancouver, Canada. – October 5, 2010 – Waves: Survivor, the first game released by independent developer Renown Entertainment, is now available for US $1.99 on the Apple App Store for the iPhone® and iPod touch®, also compatible with the iPad®.

Help our hero Johnny Calm survive the perils of being lost at sea. Armed with only a paddle and bucket in his trusty rowboat, Johnny must fend off deadly sea creatures and overcome huge waves to make it past each day. Not everything is as grim as it seems with mermaids to befriend, deep-sea treasures to collect, big combos to score, and a special power up to extend his life. Stay alert or you’ll find Johnny swimming with the fishes! Can you survive?

With Waves: Survivor, the team at Renown seamlessly combined old school game play with new school technology [water physics] for a truly innovative and unique experience. Whether you play to beat your own score or compete against friends and the rest of the world for bragging rights, it can become very addictive. The team hopes that gamers everywhere have as much fun playing it as they did creating it.

Guest stars Carolina Stephanie and Alicia Meek provide the look and voice acting for the mermaids in addition to a dramatic music score by Hollywood composer Jason Livesay.

Waves: Survivor features leaderboards (via Facebook and Twitter), interactive water physics, continuous survival gameplay, touch and accelerometer controls, collectible items and many more.
