Mike Meade (qpawn) and Mike Gaughen (mikeg123) met in the TouchArcade thread for Rocketcat Games' awesome iOS title 'Hook Champ'. The two became bitter rivals, battling it out for global domination!

After beta testing Rocketcat Games' next two adventures, the handsome warriors discussed the possiblitity of creating their own game. At the start of 2011, BeaverTap Games was born. With their upcoming debut title 'Mikey Shorts', the gentlemen hope to show the fun and exciting world of speedrunning to a casual crowd, while still including enough challenge for talented gamers to enjoy.

We're happy to answer any questions!

Does indeed look great. I'm glad to see there's still a good amount of interest for platformers as it's one of my fav genres.

There's a platformer concept I want to work on myself, but I sometimes wonder about saturation in the store. I like to think that if a game is bringing something new (as seen here) in how it plays, there's always a place for it.

Anyway it's a definite buy from me for the fact alone that its development has a cool story behind it.

SWEET! Day one buy for me. qpawn is a legend in the rocketcat community. And I've been dying for another good speedrun game, so this looks right up my alley.

Great story and initial video of the game looks fantastic.

Are you guys developing natively in Objective C or using a game centric development suite like Corona?

Glad to see all of the excitement so far! We've been having a lot of fun making the game, and are looking forward to getting Mikey Shorts out the door!

We are developing in Objective-C. And using Cocos2D as our framework.

Looks nice. Not many games on iOS that can get me excited anymore but this looks great.
