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.
The Nutty Escape
We helped GlueIsobar create a game as part of a promotion for Kelloggs Crunchy Nut that spanned TV and the web. Called The Nutty Escape, the game used the webcam to check if the user looked at a box of Kelloggs Crunchy Nut contained in a video.

We had to experiment a lot with different webcams and libraries, eventually modding an existing library to get as much speed as possible from it, from the widest possible combinations of hardware. It was quite a technical challenge!

Davey Jones: Tower Defence - Title Screen
Another year, another indie game! We have been hard at work on a new indie game, and are proud to announce: Davey Jones: Tower Defence. As the name suggests, this is a tower defence game!
Davey Jones: Tower Defence will initially be released worldwide on web portals such as Kongregate as a free to play game. We will then port the game to Android and iOS devices, including more content and additional DLC (Downloadable Content Content). This content will also be available to players that play online but won’t be available until the launch of the mobile versions.
We’re lucky to be working with Letsbrock on the project, he is a brilliant illustrator and designer and has done a great job directing an old school, 8bit style. We are very happy to have him on board and have created some screenshots of the game to show you:

LetsBrock has also enlisted the help of LittleBrock who has created some 8-bit shanty music to serenade you as you build up your defences. We have uploaded the main theme to SoundCloud for you to preview – have a listen and let us know what you think in the comments!
We are big fans of other games in this genre, such as Fieldrunners, the Bloons series, Kingdom Rush and of course, Onslaught!

Tower Heist Wheel
Craig Beswetherick made this project at Substance001 for the theatrical release of the film Tower Heist starring Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller. The game featured a locked safe wheel and users had to discover the combination by rotating it and listening for a distinctive ‘click’ sound.
