New Hanger game

New Hanger game

Hello! For the last 7 years or so we've been making these ragdoll swinging games called "Hanger". (Last one for iOS was Hanger World released in 2015). And now we're working on a new one! The plan is to use everything we've learned so far, only keep the best stuff, and make the ultimate rope swinging physics game. We're planning to work on it for the next 3 months and release this summer! We will update this thread regularly and if anyone has cool ideas or thoughts please share, we're listening! Later in the development we will also do a testflight for anyone who's interested in helping out.

So the basic idea for the new Hanger Game:
Portrait screen
1 button gameplay
A new endless level is generated daily
Everyone is playing the same level, and you can see where other players are dying etc while playing
Lots of fun obstacles and random events.
And of course - some new tunes by Boy vs Bacteria.

[UPDATE 22 march - latest progress]

We've been working on it for a few weeks now, and this is how it looks at the moment:

I like the Army of Hangers! You could have a Lemmings style, How Many Can You Save? mode.

Thanks! And yea the "army of hangers" turned out pretty cool! Would be fun if we could get that into the game as a special game mode or something.

Here's a little progress update:

Some bushes, buzz sawz and loosing bodyparts!

Playing around with explosions!

And all ideas are welcome.
We would love to get as much stuff in from the TA community as we can for this one!

Last couple of weeks we've been working on generating the levels and trying to get all the objects/events we've done to fit together in a somehwat nice flow. Here's an update with a playthrough of a generated level.

Any ideas for cool stuff/objects we can add?
