Learning Mixology via the iPhone

Posted by at 11:50 pm on July 24, 2010

Just in time for this weekend’s Mad Men premiere, comes an iPhone app that will help make you the best party host on the block.   Developed over two years by a team of video game and mixology veterans, Nimble Strong: Bartender in Training combines a full 101 drink mixing course with game play designed to be fun and a mature storyline.

“Whereas nearly every video game aimed at children has an underlying educational component, there is little available for adults who are interested in learning life useful skills,” said Adam Ghahramani, the game’s director. “With Nimble Strong we spent as much time on creating a progressive and authentic educational experience as we did on the game play and storyline.”

To underscore the game’s educational mission, players who complete Nimble Strong can fill out a form online and receive a printable bartending certificate.Additional features include multiple endings, dialogue branches, a vibrant art style that blends Japanese anime with Eastern European edge, 15 unique characters, practice and survival modes, and accelerometer support, so you can shake drinks by shaking your iPhone.   Players will also be surprised to learn that Nimble Strong was narrated by legendary anime and video game voice actor Kyle Hebert, who plays Gohan in the classic show DragonBall Z, Kamina in Gurren Lagaan, and Ryu in the hit game Street Fighter 4.
