Lake Effect Applications, a Syracuse, NY based company, launched its newest mobile game this week, Trigger Fist: Global Operations Assault Team (G.O.A.T). Lake Effect’s first game, StickBo, reached number one on the app store in 2010. The follow up, Trigger Fist, which has over 23 million downloads to date, changed people’s minds on what was possible on mobile devices in 2012. Today, with the proliferation of traditional PC and console style games such as Fortnite and PUBG entering the mobile space, Trigger Fist G.O.A.T. demonstrates Lake Effect’s ability to craft a game that is appropriate for mobile devices while still delivering what gamers want.
“This is it. Lake Effect has done it. Finally. THIS is the mobile shooter you’ve been waiting for on your iPhone,” acclaims NaturalHatty in a five star review.
As the only game studio in Central New York that designs, produces, and publishes its own games, Lake Effect Applications offers a unique value to the Syracuse and Central New York community. For students, gaming not only represents a beloved past time but is also a stepping stone to the careers of the future. Game development demands teams with strong engineering and art skills and should act as a catalyst for students to pursue both STEM and art based careers. Video games consistently earn more money than movies and as the largest entertainment market in the world, it should be a focus of economic growth in Syracuse.
Lake Effect Applications was founded in 2010 and has been a member of Center State CEO’s Tech Garden since 2014. John Spatola, CEO and Founder of Lake Effect Applications attests to the value of being part of the local entrepreneurship community, “Being part of the Tech Garden is an asset to us because not only do they provide quality mentorship but also their ability to reach the local community and spread the word about our products is unparalleled. Gaming is so prolific now that everyone either plays video games or knows someone who does.” Despite selling his games worldwide on the iTunes App Store, Spatola still values local connections, “It’s amazing to walk down the street and see someone playing your game on their iPhone”.
Trigger Fist G.O.A.T. is currently available for iOS devices in the iTunes app store. Help put Syracuse on the gaming world’s map. Spread the word or download now: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/trigger-fist-g-o-a-t-/id1039023278?mt=8
