Stagehand: A Reverse Platformer for iOS

Hi, this is Matt from Big Bucket. We're the makers of The Incident and Space Age. We're back to announce our new game, Stagehand!

Stagehand is what we call a reverse platformer. It might look like your classic 1980s/90s arcade jumper, but it plays nothing like one. In Stagehand, you don't control the character, you control the stage!



Move the platforms up and down to keep from running into walls, spikes, and immovable blocks; do your best to stay out of bottomless pits and lakes of lava. Along the way, don't forget to pick up some coins, chaining them up for industry-standard combo bonuses. As you get better, you'll unlock new characters who navigate the world faster: trickier to play, more fun for the hardcore platformer-masters.

We wanted to make a game that was fast, fun, and effortlessly challenging—a game that's made for touch screens, quick replay, and high-score chasing. Months in, we still play it ourselves. We think you will, too!

Stagehand will be available for iPhone and iPad on February 8. The minimum requirement is a device running iOS 8. More info at http://stagehandgame.com. Thanks!
