What is stair dismount touch

I was Looking At the zen bound developers signature and it said he was working on an Ngmoco project called ( Stair Dismount Touch). Does anyone know anything about this?

I think it is an idea that the IOC is floating about to have the iDevice in the Olympics and they are planning some of the finishing moves...

If there were such a thing I don't think it would exist....

And if it did I would be suprised to see it later this year in the app store...

It would be interesting though to see if arn & crew didn't hear anything about it at GDC 09....

I wouul assume it is an iDevice version of Stair Dismount (also known as Porrasturvat) a computer game made by Jetro Lauha of tAAt. It is a puzzle game where the goal is maximising the 'damage' done to a 3D stickman figure; the player causes damage by applying a force to the figure to make it fall down a staircase.

The stick figure's falls are accompanied by various sound effects cracks, wails and groans as it makes its way to the bottom. Stair Dismount uses ragdoll physics, so the figure is very floppy as it falls, like a ragdoll.

The game was first published in Assembly 2002, where it won the first prize in the game development competition.



You can still download the original free game Here

Is it just me, or is Star Dismount kind of pointless? I guess I just don't "get" how its fun.

If it's pre-set levels then maybe boring, but if there is any type of level editing then I'm all for it!

I don't know about this game - but my kids love the acheivements in the game "Skate" and "Skate 2" to see how many bones you can break.. Seems like the same thing... One more thing that kids (and I guess adults too) are becoming inured to...
