Smuggle Truck - Insane physics driving game

Hey Toucharcade,

The guys who created Super Ramen Brothers for the Toucharcade community (in only 24 hours) are back, with our new company Owlchemy Labs. You know our style of absurd, silly gameplay, and we hope not to disappoint with our newest title. We've been building and scheming and working on something big, and it's finally time to show you guys a sneak peek:

Smuggle Truck
The premiere smuggling game for iOS and Web

Info:
Smuggle Truck is an over-the-top physics-based driving game where you smuggle your cargo across the border in the least amount of time. Tilt your truck, catch newborn babies, drive over armadillos, and rocket your way over hills, through caverns, and over quicksand to save the people!

More info:
Looking at the screenshots, you may recognize the art style. That's because legendary artist Bill Tiller is behind the art direction and creation! The name may not ring a bell, but he was the lead background artist from Curse of Monkey Island and many other big titles with LucasArts.

How he came to join the team was actually a funny story. He contacted us directly after seeing a pre-alpha build of the game and said "your game is so ****ing hilarious, I want to do all of the art for the game, because I want to see it succeed". Once we changed our pants, we started full-on production of the game.

So with a seasoned artist and a two-man development team cranking for almost two months of balls-to-the-wall development, we present to you our teaser video and screenshots. Hope you like them!

Here's some more candy for your eyes.



This is an image where we've put together most of the assets we use in the game. Many more interesting and possibly deadly elements will be added to the game as we keep working on it. Keep a look out for them.

I just noticed the "level editor" button in the first screenshot. Does that mean we can make are own levels? If so, Sweet!
