Smith & Tinker Ditch Toys, Making Social Networking Games

Rate this Entry


Smith & Tinker are a toy/online game company that started up back in 2007, with their main project being a toy-with-online-game called Nanovor. It was sort of failure, and since Smith & Tinker had licensed out various games from Microsoft (including MechWarrior), I'm pretty sure they would need some money to carry out future projects. So they scrapped the toys, went into online gaming with some raised money, and now their into social networking.

Smith & Tinker have recently announced that not only will they be killing the toy part of Nanovor (and relaunching the property as Nanovor Evolutions), but that they will also be making a Facebook/iDevice game. Not only that, but the game is supposed to be based off of Marvel Comics properties. Soon, every one of your Facebook friends will know you have a massive crush on Psylock. Don't even try to deny it.

The game is supposed to be a "digital collectable game", so expect Pokemon-like gameplay, much like their previous game Nanovor. Whether the success will be granted to Smith & Tinker is too be known, but Activision and Marvel seem to believe in these guys, and hey, anything that helps a new MechWarrior come out, aye?
