Hello EP Yes, Empty Flask is the developer for the game This was a very short but fun development, obviously, very different to my usual stuff, but diversity is good right

Let me know what you think - intent is to have a cute kid game, featuring the mascot from ThunderWorks.

No trailer at the moment unfortunately, need to get licensor's marketing team to create one.

Hope you all enjoy the game

I decided to pick this one up and I'm sorry to say that I can't recommend it.

+ cute graphics
+ the amount of "coins" (don't know what exactly it is) you earn per run seems pretty fair

- even the usual tap to jump, double tap for double jump controls feel off
- it takes way to long until things get interesting, the game is too easy
- the same obstacles over and over again
- after 2 runs I already completed 9/10 gc-achievements

If you're searching for a new cute game for your kids, this might be worth a look. To everyone else, like I said above, I can't recommend it. Maybe EP has a different and more positive opinion about the game.
