I’m beginning to get a bit of a Chicken Little complex on the subject of mobile games. I thought Pokemon GO! was going to lead to the death of civilization, and that Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp would finish off whatever roving bands of mutants that managed to survive the earlier game. Society is resilient, though, so maybe it can handle the upcoming Neopets mobile game Neopets Legends and Letters.
For those who don’t remember Neopets, it was a highly addictive internet game that let you raise pets or something, I dunno, I never got into it — but I know it was pretty serious among some of my friends in middle school. According to Neopets (?) CEO David Lord, Neopets Legends and Letters will combine “Neopets lore, a puzzle game mechanic, and battles.”
Neopets Legends and Letters is reportedly being prepped for release sometime in October, for both iOS and Android mobile devices.
