Pretentious Game 12.05.13

I posted months ago that I will be porting Pretentious Game to mobile. Thanks to toucharcade, big publisher Bulkypix found it here and offered their expertise in publishing. So we made some updates to the game including localization to 11 languages!



A lovely journey with Pretentious Game on smartphones and tablets

The game is a charming platformer full of poetry. First chapter will be available for free and the rest of the game at $0.99 via in-app purchase.

Clever, intriguing, touching, Pretentious Game surprises by the depth of its narrative. Powerful story about love, the title explores the sense of loss and (re)discovery of the other. Between each platform and each riddles, many levels of understanding are possible. Pretentious game features many satisfying aspects that should delight the fans of indie games.

The game is already awarded or nominated for a lot of prizes, including the Director’s Choice Award at the San Francisco's Casual Connect. Pretentious Game is also nominated at the Independant Game Festival (IGF) 2014 and now awaits you.

Let the words and your feelings guide you. Read between the lines to progress through the story in this enigmatic platformer enhanced by the enchanting music of Erik Satie.

The pursuit of happiness starts now!

This looks pretty sweet. Minimalist platformer layered with a good narrative. Cant say no to that.

I've seen various posts here and there about this being released on Android. I'm presuming the release date's the same as the iOS release?

Fantastic. You've made your first Android sale. I know people are sick to death of me and my Android posts all over the place, but it's awesome that Bulkypix is one of the few developers that seems to embrace it just as much as iOS.
