Miniclip launched Ovar.io, a new, online, multiplayer, PvP arena populated by a variety of colourful, bad-ass sperm. Take on hordes of wriggly competitors to be the ultimate sperminator!
Developed by Argentinean OKAM Studio, Ovar.io is the latest and most unique browser-based game to spearhead the next generation of multiplayer ‘2.io’ browser games and follows in the steps of Miniclip’s hugely successful Agar.io, Diep.io and recently released, Squadd.io.
Ovar.io is a game of sperm, yes sperm, that’s all about getting to the eggs, called Ovarios, first. The aim of the game is to win as many Ovarios as possible before you die. Battle other players and race your little swimmers to be the first to reach the Ovarios and fertilise them. Once you’ve made them yours then an Ovario will become a turret emitting bullets deadly to alien sperms, therefore damaging your opponents and giving you ultimate baby-making bragging rights.
Players can choose from a range of funky sperm characters such as the Cluster, a group of flocking little spermatozoa; the Tank, a slow-moving heavy attacker; the Soldier, a balance between strength and speed; the Scout, a far-sighted, fast but weak sperm or the Ghost, a spooky guy with the power to dematerialise.
Ovar.io is the latest in a series of new .io titles from mobile and web game publisher, Miniclip. Jamie Cason, Miniclip’s Executive Producer said “Ovar.io represents everything that’s great about the .io genre. It is cheeky, irreverent, easy to play, but tricky to dominate. We’re actively looking to move things on with “2.io” games like Ovar.io, where professional studios like OKAM get to bring all their experience making characterful, beautifully animated and nicely-crafted titles to an area which has hitherto been the reserve of brilliant new talent like Agario’s Matheus Valadares who are making very punky, home-made-feeling products. If Agar.io was the Sex Pistols, then our 2.io games are Blondie! We think there is a market for web-based super-fun, casual, multiplayer games like Ovar.io that look and feel as gorgeous as a mobile or console game.”
Martina Santoro, CEO of OKAM Studio said “We’re proud to be the development studio of Ovar.io for Miniclip. When they came to us with this crazy idea of a game of sperm we couldn’t believe our luck. For us, Ovar.io is a chance for us to demonstrate our teams’ talent for realising distinctive new game IP in the .io genre. Miniclip are the perfect creative partner for independent studios such as ours, giving us the chance to express ourselves to make a magical, funny, exciting world in which players can have maximum fun!”
