Zits & Giggles

Hey! This is my first post here, so I hope I don't F up or break some rules or something.

First, quick intro, I am half of the team behind "wurdle", I handle all the art and some of the design. My business partner Eric & I have been working really hard at putting together a pretty big update for the game for the last few months, so I hope you'll bear with us as we get the finishing touches put together for that. I'm also working on a new, original Semi Secret game prototype that we'll be showing around discreetly at GDC next week, and less discreetly on the web next month.

HOWEVER

Sometimes I get a hankering to do a little something on the side. Sometimes this is just helping out other developers (Infinite Ammo, Nicalis) with interesting projects. Sometimes it involves making little free Flash games like Gravity Hook.

Sometimes it is...other stuff. Maybe something that is not ummmm necessarily in line with the I guess Semi Secret Software "brand" or whatever. Something like:



Zits & Giggles.

Tommy, Danny and I put some serious time and thought and effort into this thing, and I hope that once we get the ol' Apple seal of approval that it will genuinely hook you with its arcade gameplay even after the novelty of zit-popping wears off

Finally, we have some pretty cool ideas for additions to the game, as far as gameplay and extra features, but it's kind of a risky title, and frankly we're swamped with trying to support our existing apps. So the version that is going to the store is not exactly the...the dream game that we pictured Zits & Giggles might be. The gameplay is rock solid, don't get me wrong!

But there's some extra modes and some online features that we would love to implement. If you are a Semi Secret or Tommunism customer already, you know that we have support the $#!+ out of our apps. If you think this looks fun or just funny, and you can help spread the word, that would be awesome and justify the addition of some pretty cool stuff to the game over the next few months.

FINALLY finally, watch this space for additional screenshots, promo codes, and more!

Thanks very much for your time and for the great forum


UPDATE: promo codes!

Haha, I remember a flash game like this.

The premise is very crude, but I be the gameplay is fun! I'll have to check this out.

Hi Adam_Atomic! Welcome to the forum. You should list your apps in your signature so other posters know you are a dev and what you have worked on.

Zits & Giggles looks gross! Does pus spurt out when you burst a zit? Does it have realistic sound effects too?
