Long time, no post! If you’ve been wondering what we’ve been up to lately, the answer is, predictably, working on a video game! But you want the juicy details, right?
We’re happy to announce that we are partnering with Beau Kittredge, professional Ultimate player and children’s book author, to create a new game for mobile. (To start, at least!) It’s called Jack Nimble Attack of the Boredom Bugs and it’s a new type of strategy, puzzle game that combines elements of tower defense with skill-based mini-games to create a more active experience.
In Jack Nimble Attack of the Boredom Bugs, you play as Jack Nimble, a Lumber-jackrabbit Of All Trades. Summon animal friends to help you defeat the invading Boredom Bugs from a different galaxy. Put on your thinking cap and fight the bad guys in multiple, skill-based mini-games, each with a unique perspective. Bounce on their heads with an armadillo. Bowl down the road with a porcupine. Drop objects as an owl way up in the sky.
You can help unlock the playable demo by visiting http://www.jack-nimble.com and liking, sharing, tweeting, and subscribing to the newsletter. (And then tell your friends to do the same!) New rewards unlock as the combined amount of social media love grows, the goal of which is unlocking the Jack Nimble demo. Until then, you can unlock pages of the story, the preface to the game, with writing by Beau Kittredge and beautiful illustrations by Diego Almazan.
Share, share, share! It’s currently close to unlocking the third reward!
