This game looks terrific! I can see a little bit of Pitfall and a little bit of Ski Safari influence but combined together with much originality and a unique theme. I am very much looking forward to this title!

Thanks! I'll have a promo code for you as we didn't do the public beta even though you (and sayukalex) asked so nicely

I'll probably hand out a couple of promo codes to other nice supporters in this thread, too. Depends on how many codes I'll have left after launch

Cheers!

Very bold, bold claims to reference Donkey Kong Country for your endless runner I see what you mean, though.

Honestly, this could be the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance of the Donkey Kong Country series! In this game, the greed of Donkey Kong and his bananas has hit a breaking point, and he has to run away from his banana horde (can't imagine how big it is with banana royalties!), and in the end, save the jungle from total destruction.

Very poignant tale of greed, corruption, saving animals, and how bananas can both bring peace, as well as war, to even the kindest of folk.



Okay, so I went a little far there, probably. But from the tutorial video, this game definitely looks nice. Donkey Kong Country is one of my favorite game series, so I was understandably very skeptical of this one at first. But I think I can get behind Donkey Kong Country being an inspiration for it now. The rideable animals, the bananas (obviously), the treetops!, and even the lava area that's very reminiscent of Donkey Kong Country Returns. Oh, and a couple of the objects in the way (mostly the breakable boar blocks) remind me of Donkey Kong Country Returns as well.

It is a little unfortunate that it's an endless runner, but it has some great potential, especially from what we've seen of the shop. I can see it getting quite addicting. Maybe not Jetpack Joyride addicting, but addicting in its own respectable right.

Good luck on the release of the game. I'm sure I'll pick it up as soon as it swings by the App Store.

Wow no idea how i missed this thread, but sure am glad to have found it. I'm not a big fan of runner games nor have i ever been into them, but this game might just do it for me. love the whole Donkey Kong theme mixed in with other stuff, making it something more enjoyable atleast from what i see, anyways am looking forward to playing this & really wish ya'll the best of luck with this & any other future releases!
