Probe the Humans by GameResort coming to the BlackBerry PlayBook

Probe the Humans
By Bla1ze on 15 Oct 2012 08:35 pm EDT

It's no secret that RIM has been working hard with developers and publishers to ensure there are plenty of games and apps available for the BlackBerry PlayBook and eventually BlackBerry 10. Now, another 'soon-to-be-released' game has appeared, this time from the folks at GameResort. Probe the Humans lets you fly around in a UFO collecting humans and animals:

Have you ever fantasized about piloting a spaceship? Have you ever felt the urge to wreak havoc on a small rural farm town? Have you ever wanted to experience the thrill of kidnapping hundreds of people and farm animals?

Don't be ridiculous, of course you have.

You asked for more zombie games - and we delivered something completely different. Probe the Humans is an intergalactic probe-fest designed to fit inside your pocket.

At this point, there is not ETA for release but having played the game on Android and iOS already, I take satisfaction in just simply knowing it's coming to the PlayBook and BlackBerry 10. Check out the game trailer below and some more screenshots in the CrackBerry Forums. Thanks, XSacha!

Probe the Humans by GameResort coming to the BlackBerry PlayBook


First :-) Games games games, bring it, we need it. This game looks mega cool and I'm gonna get it.
Tablets are incredible

I just hope they don't even think keep the nonsense of charge for another free app on playbook "because of the hard work" is exactly the same hard work to develop for Android and they don't charge for it! So don't think we playbook users are stupid

Honestly, it doesn't bother me if they do charge for a free game on other systems, as long as they don't compare sales numbers and call the PB app a failure because it gets downloaded a ton less. If the choice is to pay for a game or not get the game at all, ill take the option to pay for it.

That being said, I wouldn't pay for this game, but I'd happily play it with ads.

I'll pay up to $1.99 for this game, that's it. Playbook really needs to do like Android and have a paid version, and a free version with ads. It endlessly pisses me off how they have almost no free games on Playbook, and the oposit is true of Android. There's 90,000 apps in app world and only about 10% of them are free.
Tablets are incredible

What are you going to do then? Pirate them? Support the developers, or don't download those "paid" apps at all.

Most of the "free" games that are on other tablets and such are supported by advertisements. Not all mind you. But give it time, and the more money a developer makes from selling games or apps the more likely they are to make more for it. Which eventually means we might get exclusives and higher grade games. Got no problem paying for quality games for the playbook.

What are you talking about guy, this looks awesome. Yes I too would play this with ads, if the gameplay is challenging enough, I would buy, i'm not paying $5 though, and no i'm not paying $4 either!!! But keep it coming, it looks sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!!!!!!!!!!!

Nothing is free.
You either:
Have ads in which case we all pay
Have in game purchase in which case you pay
Or we have a paid app... you pay.
You pay every time.
Pick one and shaddap!

Game looks cool to me. People should stop snivelling and embrace the devs.

Playbook needs to get their s*** together and offer both paid and free versions like Android does. I have a ton of money invested in my Playbook apps and there's no reason Playbook cant have both paid and free versions. Seriously, who cares if you have to look at an ad when you play? not me. I love my Playbook and this (along with lack luster app selections) are the only things about Playbook that piss me off.
Tablets are incredible

Well, PlayBook is a tablet, so I assume you mean RIM... but RIM doesn't make the apps, developers do. Email developers, Tweet them, etc, and let them know how you feel. They are the ones that make that choice, so give them feedback and maybe eventually we'll see more free (ad supported) apps and games. :)

Rootbrian has no experience with a Samsung Galaxy Tab and 100,000 free apps, otherwise he wouldn't be making such a redundant statement. I love my Playbook as much as the next businessman but Rootbrian is one of the die hard Blackberry fanboys who thinks the whole tablet world is Blackberry and Playbook and nothing more. Sad little attitude.
Tablets are incredible

Not all ads are simple and kepts separate(viewed before playing the game). Some stop the action in the middle of gameplay and make you visit the sites. Or potentially take up screen real estate. I prefer a buck or two. Both versions might be nice or perhaps a demo system? So you can know if the app or game is quality or not.

I avoid games with in app purchases. I prefer to buy a game outright, no advertising, no in app purchases. Having said that it's always nice to try the game first (with advertising if necessary, or demo) then buy if it turns out to be a good game.
