Specimites - Spawn to self-destruct.

We're proud to announce 'Specimites'. Take a look at these teaser trailer videos:

Description:
From what we know of their biology thus far, we're able to conclude Specimites are spawned with a predetermined, in-built death wish. Without doubt these are the little creatures evolution forgot. We're currently in the process of harvesting Specimites and bringing them to you in the form of a unique and darkly funny app.

Background:
The idea for Specimites was originally spawned over 6 years ago back in 2005. Only now has it been possible for these critters to become a reality thanks to the app development team over at Fixdit.

"I became fascinated by the concept of a species whose meaning of life was solely that of self-destruction in the most unfortunate way possible. Specimites are inexplicable creatures born with an inherent defect, as if they were the sick incarnation of a creator with an incredibly dark sense of humour. The 'Bombi', with a fuse in the back of it's head; pre-lit at birth is a perfect example." - Faye, Concept creator

You can follow the development process on Twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/Specimites (@Specimites)

We're looking for testers on iOS and Android so please express your interest below in the thread. We've set a date for release summer 2011.

Thanks,
Fixdit Team

I love the art and would like in if it is some sort of randomized survival game and not a series of pre-scripted puzzles.

Not sure what Specimites is all about based on just the teaser videos, but I'd be interested in testing this. I only have time until early June though; after that, I'll be busy on vacation until August.
