Wall West | George: Scared Of The Dark - coming soon!

Hey guys!

Just a quick post about my upcoming game!

It's taken me 6 months to develop and is due out on iOS on 18th July 2016.

Here are a few screenshots and vids! I've only been making games for just over a year and it was a fairly challenging and big project for me to complete.

Description

"George: Scared Of The Dark is a classic platformer adventure that follows George the ghost as he sets out on his quest to battle his fear of the dark across an uncharted, and at times, eerie world.

A ghost who is afraid of the dark? Yikes! Help George conquer his fear in this charming platform game. Overcome 10 challenges, guided by a mysterious spirit and guide George to safety. Jump into the instantly fun game play and watch the story unravel. Discover the lighthouse and find out who lives in the small cottage.

- 10 procedurally generated levels to play through
- Each level is different every time!
- 3 power-up abilities to master
- 3 additional characters to unlock
- Intuitive touch and swipe controls
- Heartwarming story about conquering fears with a unique ending

Can you help George before his fear gets the best of him?"

History

It all started with a jam! George: Scared Of The Dark evolved from an entry to Procedural Generation Jam 2015. Originally called "Mountains That We Climb", the mini project took one day to create and experimented with generating 2D scenes with simple mountains, clouds and changing weather systems. The jam entry got good feedback on its strong visual aesthetics and Alex decided to start developing the concept further into a game a month later.

Motivation

I wanted to create a game that was more than just a casual mobile game. I wanted it have more depth, mystery and story. In particular, I wanted the game to feel atmospheric, for the player to be temporarily immersed into the magic of the game world. At it's core, I wanted it to have a central theme of overcoming challenges and conquering fears.

And it's a paid game! Looks amazing!

My screen name is misunderstood. I am not some arrogant person who thinks he's so cool. Cool, because I like cold weather and Pepper because I'm hot.

Thanks for your comment! Difficult to get your game noticed and get feedback - so much appreciated!

Yes it's going to be low cost but paid game it will be 1.49 ($1.99). I really didn't want to put adverts in there as I felt it would ruin the experience.
