Critter Escape! [Chillingo]

Hey everyone--

I'm one of the developers at Kiz Studios working on the upcoming Chillingo release of Critter Escape! It's a fun maze chase game, which our sound guy describes as, "like pac-man crossed with old school NES metal gear." The game was built in Unity, and uses a pause-and-play drawing mechanic to help you easily guide your little muck critter to safety. Or you can escape using the arcade-style virtual d-pad, which also works great with iCade products.

We had our official Critter Escape! announcement last week, so we're finally free to talk about the game! We should be on the App Store this summer, with launches on Google Play and Amazon around the same time. The game has over 100 levels with multiple art-styles, hats for both fun and power, bonus levels, secret areas, and super-secret unlockables. For more info check out www.critterescape.com. Here's a couple videos for your viewing pleasure... (maybe mods can make embedding work?)



We can't wait to hear your thoughts-- but mostly can't wait for you to help our little critter escape the nefarious clutches of Welk Industries! Thanks, denton
