The Amazing Bernard (by Kumkwat Entertainment)

Hey Toucharcade, just wanted to announce our (Kumkwat Entertainment) biggest game to date, the epic action/adventure/platformer/runner
The Amazing Bernard.



The Amazing Bernard tells the story of how exactly a scrawny, meek Bernard grew to become one of the most legendary military heroes of his generation, Bernie O'Tag. This is an origin story unlike any before it as you will dive into the mind of the man himself and unveil the secrets that make Bernie amazing...and the ones that don't.



As I mentioned, The Amazing Bernard is a game that covers many genres. You will soar through the air to just barely pull off a massive jump...you'll slide right under a falling spikeball feeling the air across your face as it whizzes by and you'll swing from rope to rope, feet dangling above certain doom.



Bernie can also manipulate the world to help his cause with special powers. As Bernie you'll be able to create platforms to run on and drop in springs to jump from all with the touch of a finger. With full energy you can fuel Bernie with the power of an angel, sparing him from a mistake with wings that will bring him gently to the ground after seemingly sure death.



On top of the thrilling story mode, players will also get to enjoy an endless runner mode where they can play as Bernie and other characters from the campaign, all with their own unique abilities to help players reach the top of the leaderboard.

All of this through beautifully hand-drawn 2D environments and to the sweet sounds of an epic original soundtrack.
We'll be posting updates on new features and new story all the way until the release so you can check out our website and/or follow us on twitter.
Let me know what you think!

With that we have a new trailer showing off some of the different twists on the gameplay and some small hints at the story. I'll put some more updates for the game here as we get closer to the release and if anyone has anyone has any questions about the game I'll be happy to answer, thanks!

Wanted to give everyone an update as February 25 happens to be tomorrow which is the current listed release date for The Amazing Bernard. Unfortunately we pushed perfecting the game a little too close to said release date and didn't get the App Store approval in enough time before to properly promote and distribute it for reviews, etc. So sadly the 25th will not be the release date.

The good news is after a long road, the game is totally finished and it's just a matter of putting it out on the right date, it will be March 3 or March 10 and I'll officially announce it in the next day or so.

I'll see if I can do some promo codes for the forums, thanks for the patience, I think it will be worth the wait!

We have a date and it's not too far at all! The Amazing Bernard will be coming out March 3! Whipped up a small and moderately menacing teaser to announce the change for you as the villain of this story comes to the forefront a little more.

I hope everything is ok too, but there may be a slight problem I thought for sure was fixed. The reason for our initial delay was a bug on the ropes in Level 1-3 that caused them to not move properly on occasion. I tested a fix thoroughly on several iOS devices till I was comfortable the bug was gone. Unfortunately I'm essentially one guy making a game so I'm a little limited on how many devices I can test with.

Long story short, we got word from someone we sent a promo code to that the bug somehow reappeared on an older iPad so I wanted to call on your help just to make sure this release version is truly good to go before we actually release it.

So anyone that would like to help me out and test to see if they get the bug I'll send over a promo code. I'd like to see how it reacts on different devices so maybe just post what device you have and I'll PM you a promo code. Then if everything is running well on your device you'll own the game before it's out, like $3.99 in your pocket!

So thanks in advance for the help, hopefully everything works fine and I don't have to delay this another week again cause that would suck. The woes of the small indie developer working in a basement!
