Hello TouchArcader's!


I've been a long time follower, first time poster! My name is Stephen and I'm working on a really exciting game called Bing Bong! I've been working on the character/game for the past year, but now it's finally on the road to being made! Hoorah!

The game is called "Bing Bong" and itís about an Amoeba named Bing Bong who lives in the small town of Microchusetts. One day Evil Zibob and his Evil Minions invade Microchusetts, so itís up to Bing Bong to rescue his town!




^Evil Zibob


Weíre still working on the gameplay, but the main focus is gameplay that actually makes sense for the character.

To give you a quick run down, you'll need to slice Bing Bong in half to either avoid bigger minions, or eat smaller minions. The more minions you eat, the more points you'll earn! If the minions eat you, you lose! My background is in animation, so I figured, why not make a game about a really great character? Combining really great gameplay with a unique and fun character will create something totally awesome! We hope!





I really love this character and I hope you do too! Iím going to be posting lots of drawings and production work as we make it here on TouchArcade, if you like him, of course! Iím gonna post daily! Weíre also going to put all the pre-production work into an eBook and physical book! Iíve always loved seeing those behind the sceneís books and thought itíd be great to show people how we built the game and art!



Come follow us on Twitter @AmoebasRule and you can like our Facebook page www.AmoebasRule.com (donít worry itíll direct u to FB.) Weíre also using #AmoebasRule for Bing Bong, so feel free to tweet away!

Thanks soo much guys! Are you guys into the whole production-of art? Curious to hear what you think! I'll have some more stuff for you tomorrow!

Cheers!
Stephen[/CENTER]

^^ Thanks Jon! In due time, in due time! We're working hard every day and we don't want to reveal the gameplay specifically just yet. But maybe in a week or two we'll have some rough game play to show

In the meantime, here's a picture of Bing Bong, really having to pee!
