Hungry Helga, eating her way to an iPhone and iPad near you

Hi everyone,

I'd like to announce our first game ever, Hungry Helga! It was created over the past six months by myself and a talented friend who did the artwork. The game was written from scratch using C++ and OpenGLES.

We recently submitted to the App Store so we should be releasing very soon, but as you know it depends on how long Apple takes to review it.

I hope you'll like our work. Below is a little taste.

Some screenshots:

We have a development blog here, which I'll be posting to a lot more in the future now that I don't have my head buried in the game itself.

Also a Facebook fan page:

And Twitter:

If you like what you see, please follow us and spread the word. Let me know if you have any questions!

For a first iPhone game, this looks really nice. I think I might grab it if I have money

Not sure if any reviewers monitor these threads, but in case they are, Helga wrote a personal ad on our blog just for reviewers who maybe interested in checking her out more closely and sharing a meal of fresh fish before we release:

The artwork looks amazing and I really like the basic concept of the game. Just the kind of game that I'm looking for to relax with after a long day. Eager to get it on my iPhone!
