[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom – Ibidex today is proud to announce the release of Petri 0.8 for Mac OS X, a local multi-player shooting game using smartphones as controllers. Suitable for all ages, Petri is available to play with up to 16 players. Petri runs on the Ibidex platform. Using Ibidex’s unique multi-player connectivity, anyone with the free universal Ibidex controller app (iOS or Android) can join the game.
Unlike the video game parties of yore, where friends had to wait their turn to race or battle, Petri allows everyone to join in. Petri and Ibidex combine to provide the most chaotic maelstrom of fun imaginable. Fire away at your opponents, shrink them down to size, and then gobble them up before they get you!
“We wanted to build something that allows large groups of friends to play together. Not strangers,” says Steve Olesansky, CEO of Ibidex. “The solution was simple, once we thought about it. Why not use smartphones – the most accessible controller in the world? Ibidex multi-player technology uses your own device to draw everyone in the room into an inclusive and shared experience.”
