Clash of Clans has been a massive mobile hit since its release 10 years ago. A decade of millions of engaged gamers is an impressive ride, but developer Supercell decided 10 years wasn’t long enough, so to celebrate the anniversary, it created a strange alternate universe where Clash of Clans has been around for 40 years. . To make up for the 30 years players haven’t been able to enjoy Clash of Clans, Supercell has created a number of videos, images, clothing, breakfast cereals and more to fill the void. .
To kick things off, Supercell has imagined (and developed) a collection of playable mini-games in Clash of Clans that play like old arcade games inspired by different decades. He also created matching artwork to accompany the games along with a series of posters.
Supercell also produced a 20-minute documentary on the creation of Clash of Clans, again imagining what it would have been like if the game had been developed in the 80s. It’s an odd approach to exploring the plot of background of a popular game, that is to say that it is entirely invented. You can watch the full video below.
Other items include the Clash of Clans Garbage Pail Kids cards, which you can actually buy and own. Topps, but they will only be available for one week. Supercell also produced a cereal in partnership with General Mills called Barb’s Choco Boom Booms. Like the Garbage Pail Kids Cards, this is also a product you can actually buy at Walmart.
Supercell was kind enough to send GameSpot a poster, Barb’s Choco Boom Booms cereal box, and ’90s Clash of Clans apparel. We haven’t opened the cereal to taste it yet.
In addition to all the retro but technically non-retro material, Supercell has also added a 10-day Clash boss campaign to Clash of Clans. There will be a new map with 11 levels and every day starting today there will be a new challenge and a special prize all inspired by the best content in the game over the years. Each day will celebrate the characters and winning strategies that have defined a year of Clash gaming.
Everything will end with a big “party of ages”. Players can also unlock the “pixel landscape” by playing the challenge levels and scoring 15 stars. There will also be an in-game cake and the hero Pixel King, which will be available for free.
