Fetch (by Big Fish Studios)

We are making a new mobile game, optimized for touch screen devices, called FETCH. Fetch is an adventure game - but for a fun twist, we threw in a variety of arcade mini-games which you have to complete in order to progress through the story.

The arcades are refined variations of classic gaming experiences. They dramatically affect the playability of the game and allow competitive or social players the opportunity to match off against each other for High Scores.

You can watch the trailer here:

Fetch speaks to that deep part of the human condition, of love and loss. It triggers the remembrance of our best friendships. The story is an emotional one for most players. You feel the need to reconnect the boy and Bear (his dog). You take ownership in the outcomes.

The game is riddled with references that add to the nostalgic charm that you come to relate to the game. It becomes an Easter Egg hunt of its own, a game in a game.

What do you think?
