MeowWalker coming soon!

We just submitted our first iPhone game, MeowWalker, to the App Store:



MeowWalker brings an addictive action game to the iPhone and iPod Touch starring a stylish cat who knows all your favorite dance moves. Designed exclusively for the iPhone, tilt and swipe your way to success as you try to impress the crowd. Survive level after level by wowing the crowd with your moves, dancing under spotlights, and deflecting projectiles thrown by hecklers. Compete with your friends AND the world for the highest score as levels progress into a frenzy!

Features:
  • Beautiful hand-drawn cartoon graphics and animation
  • Intuitive controls that combine tilting and swiping into a kinetic experience
  • OpenFeint integration for online leaderboards and achievements. Compete with the world for the highest score and the most "licking"!
  • MeowWalker Radio, an innovative feature that selects songs from your iPod library that complement the game. Make sure you have your favorite Michael Jackson songs ready

We have lots of new features in development and would love to hear what the community would like us to add to the game.

wow! this looks really fun! I'll be getting this!

Does the cat change costumes in the game itself? I want to see the cat dancing in the Smooth Criminal suit!

What if we don't have any MJ songs in our ipod?

In our initial release, you only have the Thriller suit, but we're working on costumes and backdrops for new levels. Here's some concept art for different suits we're considering:



Which do you like the best? Is your favorite MJ look missing?

As for music, we have MJ-like music in the game for those that don't have the real deal on their iPod. I do suggest you load up a few songs if you've got em', because it adds quite a bit to the experience

Awesome robotsymphony! I like those sketches!

It would be cool if you could also have the Billy Jean look from the 1983 Motown 25th anniversary performance...

I think the Bad video costume would also be neat...

suits

Nice suggestions! We'll see what we can do

I'll also note that these future levels will use MeowWalker Radio to seek out the appropriate track for each look we give the main character (of course it picks other ones if you dont have exactly the tracks). So if you want your favorite tracks featured in a level, lets find the right iconic look for them

I was amused by the video. I can see though that all that meowing could get really annoying in no time at all.

Too soon?

Ah who cares. He was a pedophile.

Two guys walked into a bar. You think they would've seen it or something.

you do realize that he was acquitted the first time due to the lack of actual evidence, and that the second time was blatant extortion, right? i don't even like michael jackson and i think it's obvious how messed up people would use their children to pull in millions(22 million on first case) in this sue happy nation. the father in the first case went on record to say that how this situation affected his child was "irrelevant to me" as long as he got what he wanted. nice guy. as for the second case, gee, let's let our kids sleep with michael after that famous case where he allegedly molested another child. that's not fishy at all. but hey, maybe he did do it. we can never say for sure.

that said, this game is missing a cat that turns into a car and beeps for bonus points under the spotlight.
