Announcing Puffington - The finest, most adorable old-timey deep sea platformer ever!

Hey all!

Rick from Hojo Studio here - I'm one of two Aussie indie devs on an intrepid mission to tell the world about Puffington - our adorably old-timey sepia-toned underwater platforming white-knuckle adventure rescue quest, and our debut 100% FREE game for iPhone, releasing November 5.



A trailer, you say? Behold!

Also on the Vimeos! https://vimeo.com/69451690

THE STORY:
Puffy's best gal has been fishnapped! Stolen away in a jealous rage by the dastardly Count Eelsworthy.

To get her back, you'll need to journey to his dark abode far across the ocean, collecting enough gizmos along the way to build the dirigible you need to fly to her rescue!

THRILL to an epic deep-sea adventure as you brave an adorable old-timey world of traps and treasures along the ocean floor to save fair wormina!

FEATURES:
- The world's simplest one-touch control scheme. A second to learn, a lifetime to master!
- A panoply of bonuses to collect such as the PROSPECTOR and INVINCIBUBBLE
- Collect shillings to arm yourself with the tools to prevail, such as the BRINE HAMMER, SEA-N-T, deadly POX or revitalizing SEANIX DOWN!
- 24 fiendishly challenging levels beneath the waves
- Spectacular cinematographs of Puffy's heroic story
- A full score of hot, hot rhythms to underscore the action
- Are you puff enough? Make no mistake, Puffington's journey is not for the feint of fin. You will be tested. Only the greatest will prevail.
- There's also a beret. So that's pretty great.

NO FREEMIUM FRIPPERY!
We say Tish Pshaw to such flipsy. Puffington is our gift to you, and won't cost you a penny. All items you purchase in-game must be earned by the sweat of your gills alone!

Puffington has been a labor of love side project for us and the product of over a year and a half of evenings and weekends. Thank you for reading this post - we really hope you enjoy the game!

Puffington is releasing this November 5 for iPhone (5 and above).

Sounds great. Something fishy about your sense of humour though!

Visually looks like the misadventures of p.b. winterbottom. Ain't saying it's a bad thing though
