People Bucket

Quote:
People Bucket – Games like No, Human have proven that you can take a simple physics gameplay mechanic and turn it in to an incredibly elegant game. I'm not sure if that's going to be the case with People Bucket or not, but the trailer has definitely piqued my interest.

Popular flash game being ported soon to the iPhone. News came first straight from the touchArcade homepage.

Oh hey, thanks for the post! I'm the developer behind People Bucket. I was planning on doing one of these in the near future but hadn't got around to it yet, so much appreciation.

The game will be entering testing in the next few weeks, with a likely November release date following that. If you'd like to help test, feel free to send me a PM with a few details about your device — there's still a fair amount of slots I'd like to fill.

Other than that, I'm glad you guys liked the trailer! I'll be releasing some more videos or screens this weekend, so I'll follow up in this thread when that happens. Until then, if you're super interested you can follow the Twitter account I set up for the game at @peoplebucket.

Once again, thanks so much for posting. I'll catch up with everyone soon.

P.S. The video link looks malformed for me. Not sure if you could possibly fix it in the OP? Might be my browser, though. Here's the original link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSeCFs8Cvlo

This looks pretty interesting. May take a look at it when it comes out. Do you plan to support it in future updates?

Yep, 70-ish levels across 7 episodes to start. Subsequent updates will include around 10-15 levels a piece. Creating the levels is really quite fun, which will be reflected by very generous updates.

I'll also be watching people's reactions to the game and periodically including other gameplay modes to keep things interesting.

Wow that sounds fantastic! I always love games that update their game. It's what keeps it on my front page.

Also do plan to support Game Center or something like it (Openfeint, ect.)?

Totally. I'm still gauging the available options to see which one will be the best fit for People Bucket, but you'll definitely see a leaderboard and achievement capacity in the game.

Hey guys, sorry about the delay! Great things have happened in the past couple of days of People bucket development. The game is coming along swell and is definitely on track for release this November. I think you're all going to really enjoy this game.

Here's a tasty new video showing off one of the primary game mechanics. Hope you all enjoy!

P.S. The game actually runs 60FPS, so don't fret about the framerate in the video. It's just a bottleneck from the recording software.

Great stuff. The original game isn't bad but it was way to short. Can't wait for this.
