About Us:
The game is developed by Twice Different, a relatively new studio in Melbourne, Australia.
Primarily myself (artist) and an old mate, Matt (coder), with sound and music by Zander. I've made art for games including CS:GO, DOTA2, Armello and Stanley Parable, but despite being well-versed in the desktop space I've always loved mobile gaming and games that are just really challenging!

Inspiration for this game came from playing backyard trampoline games with a bunch of kids. I pitched a 'game about bouncing children off a bounce house' to Matt and we started prototyping around this concept. We remade this game 3 or 4 times before settling on the endless bouncer structure.

Bounce house

I tried a game and it looks really funny, but I have to improve my bouncing skills to avoid all these obstacles... I think it would be too hard for my 5year girl. At first glance - too colorful.
I'll keep playing & improving my skills

Thanks for your feedback, SunMarina! It is quite a challenging game for sure, and there's a surprising amount of mastery in the controls. It's all designed so you can get into a quick flow of bouncing high and slamming down or jump dodging, but while learning it might be easier to take it slowly and tap more strategically.

I'm currently making a video showing some play strategies so maybe that will help show what I mean!

We pushed another update recently with more visual feedback. A few more features coming soon and full release is scheduled for OCTOBER 11th! :O Next week!
