LEGO Friends: Ranch Game

LEGO Friends Ranch

LEGO Friends Ranch

LEGO Ranch is a new HTML5 casual game for desktop and tablet. It was created to promote a Ranch toy in the LEGO Friends product line. We worked with Mind Orchard to create the game, who supplied some really great assets to work with. The game was built using ImpactJS, and LEGO: Friends runs really well on iPad’s and Android tablets, running at 60FPS across devices.

Within the game, users are presented with requests from the 4 animals on the Ranch: a Bunny, Pony, Lamb and Chicken. To complete the tasks, the player must drag the item from a characters basket onto the correct animal. The game features an achievement system with 12 achievements to progress through.

We also want to say a special thank you to Luke Wilde for his assistance on the project.

Bud Light Hotel: Bud Cruise

Bud Light Hotel Auto Pilot

Bud Light Hotel Auto Pilot

We recently worked on a project to produce a game for a Bud Light Super Bowl promotion. The game involves an endurance race where the user is required to complete a race which takes a minimum of 24 hours to finish. By avoiding obstacles including the legendary Kraken and Whirlpool’s of doom, the user can progress through the race and reach the end. Power Ups also are spawned throughout the level to help the player. There are 3 types of power ups available to the player, Speed Boost, Auto Pilot, and Invincibility. Each power up lasts a different amount of time, and provides a different perk to aid the completion of the journey. By collecting as many power ups as possible, and avoiding the obstacles, the player can record a record time and win a great prize from the folks over at Bud Light!

The game was deployed on the Bleacher Report website, but unfortunately is no longer live to play.

Little Fishes Indiegogo

Little Fishes Promotional from Little Fishes on Vimeo.

We are proud to support the Little Fishes Indiegogo, a indie film from Sunderland. Here is a break down from the guys and girls themselves:

Little Fishes is a story about Ben and Rosie, a brother and sister who leave home to search for adventure. They meet a mysterious fisherman named John, who takes them under his wing and teaches them how to survive on the open ocean. As Ben recognises a father figure in John, Rosie notices something otherworldly about the man. And she soon realises she’ll have to face her fears to save her brother.

Little Fishes was developed from an original story called Enigma by Aaron O’Sullivan. Over the past few months, along with the director of the project Garry Frost, the screenplay has been honed and perfected through workshops, writing seminars and advice from industry professionals.

Little Fishes is a University project, but even so we intend to ignore the learning curve and go straight for professional industry standard!

Cowlorful 2 is coming!

Cowlorful2

Cowlorful2

We have begun work on creating a sequel to our colourful platformer Cowlorful, currently simply known as Cowlorful 2! Hopefully we will create a better name before launch, but at the minute, that’s all we got! Jimp is once again on board to create all the fantastic artwork for the title, so you can be sure it will look fantastic.

A new feature which sets it apart from the original Cowlorful is a new underwater zone. Being underwater poses different problems for Cow, so designing and developing these levels will be extra interesting and we hope the player appreciates them too.

Cowlorful2 Underwater

The game is being developed in HTML5, and will be available on mobile, tablet and desktop. Things are pretty early in development, but we have some screenshots taken by Jimp of his work on the game so far. We are also planning on recording a few development diary videos while creating this game, to share the process with other indie developers and gamers so keep your eyes and ears peeled for those.

If you missed the first Cowlorful, you can head still over to ArmorGames to give it a play.
