NimbleBit and Disney to Team Up for 'Star Wars: Tiny Death Star'

Disney is teaming up with NimbleBit, the developer behind free-to-play hits like Tiny Tower, Pocket Planes, and Pocket Trains to release a new title called Star Wars: Tiny Death Star.

As noted by our sister site TouchArcade, the game appears to combine Tiny Tower-style gameplay with the Star Wars universe. In Tiny Tower, the goal was to build up a tower filled with various businesses, collecting and managing resources to continue to expand.

Tiny Tower isn't even a game - it's a "press buttons and wait" freemium app. The art direction and stuff is wonderful, but holy smokes is this thing a waste of time.

I'm a big Star Wars fan and will no doubt get it, but who is the dude on the far right front row supposed to be? Not entirely sure who is behind R2D2 either! Is it a 2nd Ewok?

I'm guessing an Ugnaught since he's on the "bad" side of the image.

How about Star Trek? I'm tired of Angry Birds, but I would be all over a Star Trek version. Same with "Pocket Trek" if NimbleBit would release it.

As an Angry Bird hater, I love that Star Wars is partnering with one of my favorite indie game developers Nimblebit.
