So this early morning (and I do mean early… 4:45am!) some of us from GameDevLou had the pleasure of hanging out with Nathan & Amy Fouts of Mommy’s Best Games to be on a morning TV spot for their new game Finger Derpy! We all met at Zanzabar (where the #ChompTheBit event will be friday!) with Keith Kaiser and Eric from WDRB Fox 41 news. The shooting process for a live morning show was an interesting experience, it took place in small spurts that were sprinkled into the morning show live.
I (Alex) had the awesome opportunity to show off Stanley Squeaks and the Emerald Burrito, which is the Two Scoop Games entry for #ChompTheBit. I had no idea what to say, and nothing was rehearsed, but I think everyone did well and got across what we were trying to convey.
There are two videos up on the WDRB website now, so check them out here:
Our next game is Pig Eat Ball.
“Help Bow win back her freedom! King Cake has decreed whomever can win his contest will marry his daughter! –But SHE has other ideas!
As Princess Bow, take back your fate by winning the contest yourself!”
The contest involves solving puzzlish-action levels like eating all the balls in a given level. It’s tricky though because as you eat in this game, you get bigger! Eat too much and you’ll get stuck. Now it’s time to barf to squeeze through!
There will be hundreds of levels in the final game, with lots of level goals besides just eating balls. Things like dodging asteroids, breaking crates, building sammiches, racing, eating ice cream, and more!
There’s also a 4-player party mode, and a robust level editor for building your own levels.
