Will Apple Watch spark a wave of popular Smartwatch games?

With a flurry of Android Wear smartwatches already on sale, and the Apple Watchcoming this spring, some mobile developers are already exploring the potential for wearable games.

One of them is Six to Start, which crowdfunded its smartphone fitness game Zombies, Run! on Kickstarter in 2011, and went on to sell around one million copies across iOS and Android.

Chief executive Adrian Hon was enthusiastic about the creative potential for smartwatch and wearable games in a speech at the PG Connects conference in London, but warned peers off expecting a gold-rush comparable to smartphone and tablet gaming.

“I just want to inject a dose of scepticism here,” said Hon, towards the end of a talk challenging developers to look (and think) hard before they leap into wearable gaming.

He began by talking about Zombies, Run! which puts people in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, and gets them to play by running in the real world.

“When we designed this three years ago, there weren’t really any popular smartwatches or things like Google Glass, but we treated the smartphone as a wearable computer,” he said.

On Tuesday 18th April, Prime Minister Theresa May called a snap general election for 8th June, taking the nation by surprise.
