App description: Black Friday reverse sale! Our game is normally free, but this weekend it's $.99 because Knifetank!

Its your lucky day. Sure your bus broke down and you can't find your iPhone, but theres a sinister mansion down the street that will surely have a phone you can use


"Knifetank: The Hauntening Mocks Adventure-Game Conventions, Logic." - 1up.com (remember them?)

"The ending reminded me of [spoiler]." - D__ (r/webgames)

Youll have to solve the puzzles and keep your wits about you to survive this point-and-stab adventure game. Crashfaster provides the eerie chip music soundtrack that fits perfectly with the hand drawn art style. The Hauntening is our short love letter to Monkey Island and the adventure games of yore.

Play it. Love it. Share it. Find out more about the game by following @knifetank on Twitter and Ello ("Ello? Really? Why, was Myspace just too busy?" "Hey, we like Ello.")

If you liked our Knifetank, check out our other game, SquirrelWarz (a real time strategy game for furries) for iPad.

DocPop's comments:

It lives! Just in time for Halloween, Knifetank: The Hauntening is a point and stab adventure for iOS. It's actually a bite size tribute to the adventure games of yore, but we added a speed run and some other goodies to keep it fun. Get it, play it, and let me know what you think about it in the comments here (or in iTunes if you're feeling kid). Does this forum support spoiler code?

Featuring music by Crashfaster (Dragon Fantasy, 8bitSF), art by Mike Hales (SquirrelWarz, Bob's Adventure), and writing by Doc Pop (The Mighty Decider, SquirrelWarz).

We'll be posting an update on Monday (which makes the clicks and transitions way faster and fixes our game center issues)... but the best part is we get to add more cheese puns. Those of you who have played the game might have stumbled upon the cheese in the kitchen. My goal is to get up to 50 cheese puns in the game with this next update.

You can help, leave your cheese puns below and we'll send an embroidered Knifetank patch to our very favorite one.

Our new update is up now. It's whey faster than the original version and runs butter than ever. There's a whole bunch more cheese puns now (63 total!) and at least 2% funnier than before.

That speed improvement is important because: WE GOT GAME CENTER WORKING! For some reason it wasn't working in the original. Now you can finally work on your speed runs!

Sidenote: Apple approved this update within two hours of it being submitted. Two hours! Our first version took 22 days to get approved. A few years ago, our Might Boosh game update was approved in 24 hours... but I've never heard of something getting approved this fast.

Happy Tanksgiving!
Our game is still free, but we'll be raising the price as part of our Black Friday/Cyber Monday blowout. That's right, during the weekend we'll be charging $.99 for a game that we normally would be giving away because... Knifetank!
