App description: Hi I'm Eric Brill the creator of Fish Have No Souls. Let me tell you a little about it.

Redefines Shooters For Touch
Fish Have No Souls focuses on the feeling we get when we play a great shooter game on console or pc and dismisses the way in which they accomplished it. It creates an experience you can only have on a touch device.

Compelling Story
Fish Have No Souls creates a dark, immersive story. It drives the gameplay, to free fish souls swimming in a realm in which humanity is responsible. I designed the story to inspire you and challenge your current beliefs.

How Fish Have No Souls Works
To interact with the game you place two fingers on the screen and a shot occurs between your two fingers. If you position a fish soul between your fingers, it frees the fish soul. The mechanic is simplistic, accurate, and polished. Ive spent a long time making this mechanic feel good. If youre about to free many fish souls in one shot, the fish souls detect this, and will react in cool ways to free other fish souls.

Sound Sources
The sound used for the slow down and speed up soul effect is from a user on freesounds.org zerolagtime. I reversed the effect to create the speed up sound. http://www.freesound.org/people/zerolagtime/sounds/49246/

The sound used when the you get a 4 fish soul combo and the fish souls fire out like singular fireworks is from a user on freesounds.org Audionautics. http://freesound.org/people/Audionautics/sounds/171655/

The sound used when you miss a fish soul and red splatters across the screen is from a user on freesounds.org Rock Savage. http://freesound.org/people/Rock%20Savage/sounds/81042/

The sound used when the you get a 5 fish soul combo and the fish souls blow up is from a user on freesounds.org escortmarius. http://www.freesound.org/people/escortmarius/sounds/172870/

Thank you for the video Bewi, this is one of those games that could go either way but having watched that gameplay I'm intrigued! Shame it's not Universal though.

Sounds interesting.
Are there goals to accomplish?
It sounds more like a visual playground.
Can you get out and die or lose a fish soul, etc?

Fish Have No Souls stuff and things

WHOA ! I didn't know people started a thread about this?!

I posted a thread yesterday here: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showth...ght=fish+souls

WHICH IS THE REAL THREAD MEOW?!

The video above is old when the game was still in heavyish development don't look at that . Here is the new video.



So yeah...I made this beeeach, so let me answer some questions.

There is a goal. You free fish souls and get points and stuff and don't miss them otherwise points goes bye. I should really change the description to be that haha.

My intention is/was to make it universal. I was under a super tight deadline, because if you haven't submitted your app in 180 days you lose the name. I didn't know that, so it kind of left me scrambling at the end. That said there are a few bugs and I already submitted an update, I think Monday, so that should be out really soon, but it currently work 95% perfectly, so don't worry too much.

The game has been a year or more in thoughts/development and I'm just really interested in talking about it with any/everyone.

You might be able teh get codez here http://forums.toucharcade.com/showth...ght=fish+souls but I'm running out hoping to find reviewers.

Fish Have No Souls ~~~~~~ GET IT!

My impressions from a classified convo:

Quote:
Okay, finally got a chance to download it, and HOLY POOP ITS GOOD.

The sound, the visuals, the feels, the minimalism, the everything is spot on!

My favorite part is how little you tell us.

When I first got wacky walls "wooOoOOOaAh" then I got a 9 combo and all these souls spun around killin all the fish and I was like "wooOoOOOaAh" all over again!

Really can't wait to see what else you've got hidden in there
