Default Ninja Pizza Girl - Bullying, Self-esteem, Pizza delivering Ninjas

Hello, I’m Jason Stark from Disparity Games. We’re a tiny family business consisting of me, my wife Nicole and our 17-year-old daughter Raven. We’ve been working on Ninja Pizza Girl for the last two years and we’d love to know what you think. It’s a side-scrolling platform game about bullying, self-esteem and pizza-delivering ninjas!


Official blurb -

Ninja Pizza Girl is a fast-paced platform game about speed and flow, about big jumps and giant drops and yelling out “Woohoo!” It’s a game of freedom and fun for speed runners and platformer newcomers alike. It’s also a game about Gemma,a sixteen-year-old girl trying to keep her dreams alive in face of the most merciless enemies known to any teenage girl – other teenagers.

We’re releasing it on a ton of platforms but the lead platform is iOS. It uses on-screen virtual controls but we’ve kept it to 4 buttons. We were inspired by the control system of Mikey Shorts and designed the gameplay around that. The gameplay is similar to the iOS Mirror’s Edge but with a more platformy vibe and a way greater focus on theme and story.

We’ll be showing off a playable demo at PAXaus if anyone’s going. If you’d like to experience how it plays right now you can grab the PC demo here. Apart from the controls it’s identical to the mobile.

And if there's any other social media places that you think we should be, let me know!

The feedback we've gotten so far has been really helpful so comments are really appreciated. Thanks guys.

The game looks great. It's different with other running game. Hope that I'll be a beta tester of the game if I can.

We're actually in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign. After a really strong start thanks to some favourable press, things have slowed down and the nerves are starting to ramp up.

To our complete surprise Rhianna Pratchett (writer of Mirror's Edge and the latest Tomb Raider) has become involved! She's been looking over our script and offering story advice as well as talking us up on Twitter. Despite this the KS is still pretty sluggish.

If anyone has experience running a Kickstarter (this is our first) we'd love to hear some suggestions for the last week. Any advice / criticism would be much appreciated.

I was just checking your Kickstarter Jason. I hope you guys make it, there is a certainly lot of support already and your game absolutely deserves it - it looks great.

Big thumbs up to you guys too for being able to work as a family on this!

I just wanted to back you but it's all over. Totally missed it, pity.
But you reached your goal and i'm looking forward to buy it next year.

Edit: standing in line for testing
