Attack on Titan is one of the manga/anime that has marked its industry forever. The plot and the perfectly worked characters, and the horror tones of the production make it a true masterpiece, followed by thousands of people around the world. Without spoilers, the work of Hajime Isayama follows the adventures of young Eren Jaeger, in a world in which the titans (terrifying creatures) reign supreme and give humans a hard time.
In order to defend themselves, humans possess three-dimensional equipment, which allow them to fly in the air (provided they have a point of attachment), thus going to cut the vital point of the titans, their neck. Air travel and the fight against the titans seem like a lot of fun, so it’s a no-brainer that Eren’s adventures are being adapted into a video game. More or less official games of the license exist, but the one that will interest us today is a fan productionwhich has been around the world and has been downloaded not thousands, but millions of times!
Go on a titan hunt!
It all started when Swammy, a developer in his spare time and passionate about the Attack on Titan license, created a game around his favorite anime. Convinced by his girlfriend to post a gameplay snippet of the game, he posted a short video on TikTok, detailing his project. Players and fans of the manga were seduced, and this is how Swammy decided to develop a demo of his project, allowing players to test the three-dimensional equipment in game. The latter was qualified by many “much better than in the official games”noting how perfectly flight and freedom of movement are worked into the fan’s production.
Swammy’s project went around the world, and his videos have been viewed thousands of times. So much so that the free game today accumulates more than 10 million downloads, and its developer wants to work on an improved version of the project. The latter would be developed using Unreal Engine 5, just that!
The game, if we take into account that it was developed by only one person, is already a real video game nugget and the flight between buildings (and titans) is more than pleasant. It is important to note that although versions are available for PCs and Androidsit is the PC version that is the focus of the developer’s efforts, with the Android version now at its “final version”after “the constant harassment and threats” made Swammy stop the project, for his own sanity. The internet can be so cruel…

If our time tends all platforms to want to offer their own gaming service, there is one that is having a hard time doing well, we are obviously talking about Netflix. However, it would seem that from its catalog there are some small nuggets.
