Killer Snake - (By Copenhagen Creators) [Universal]

Hey all,

My name is Rune Holm and Iím a programmer at Copenhagen Creators Associated.

Over the next couple of days Iím going to release information and media regarding our upcoming game Killer Snake.
The Game will be released for iOS, including iPhones and iPad, on thursday the 28th of February 2013.

This post will be updated with more media later today, monday, wednesday
and possibly also thursday as the game is being launched.

Hopefully you will find it interesting and will contribute with interesting questions regarding the game and company.
I will then try to answer your questions to the best of my ability.

The Game

Killer Snake is a single-player game for iOS devices that requires fast reactions and nerves of steel.
The game features stunning high quality 3D graphics and impressive sound.

In the game you must travel the world encountering the most dangerous snakes in the attempt to capture the snakes and drain them for venom. This way, the venom may be used to produce antivenom which in turn is used to cure snake bite victims.

At every encounter the player must provoke the snake to obtain more venom, while at the same time avoiding itís deadly strike. This means the player is awarded points for being cool, calm and fearless.

The game is released as freemium with limited in-app advertising, and contains the possibility to purchase additional in-game coins via in-app purchases. Game Center is supported, and there are 31 achievements to be obtained and 6 leaderboards to compete in.

The company

Copenhagen Creators is a start-up game studio formed in 2012.

With Killer Snake we aim to create an engaging game with a high level of graphics that will stand out from many of the other cartoonish app games currently available on mobile devices. We want to generate a scare effect for the users by means of realistic graphics and by playing on oneís emotions towards snakes.

At the same time we seek to contribute to help solve the problem of fatalities from snake bites, through donations to various companies that work to eliminate these fatal situations.

If you have any questions regarding the game or the screenshots, feel free to ask :-)

App Store Icon
  • This is the app store icon as it appears in the App Store and on the Home Screen.
  • We went through two iterations and had three different people work on the icon used.

Additionally I was able to take some screenshots using a collegues iPhone 4 this morning.
No additional effects have been added, so it's the pure in-game visuals you see!

(Click the thumbnails to enlarge)

  1. Main Menu with "Like"-function which awards in-game currency.
  2. Level Selection showing highest scoring friend Skov-Per using Game Center.
  3. Level Unlock for World Tour Game. In this mode you play through all continents in sequence.

  1. In South America (Level 2) Searching for snakes - Found jararacussu!
  2. In South America (Level 2) Releasing the screen too early during encounter
  3. In North America (Level 1) a Western Rattlesnake attacks!

Pics are pretty dark. Any video, so we can see some game play aspects? This seems interesting, so I'll keep an eye on it.

Hey all, glad to hear of your interest in our game. It is much appreciated.
We hope it will be equally well received when we release it on thursday :-)

I will see if I can answer your questions and comments below:

Yes, the goal is, as you may already have found, to find and catch snakes.
- However, finding them is usually the easy part!

Furthermore, there are 6 different levels each offering increased difficulty.
So even hardcore gamers should find some of them challenging :-)

You are quite right, the pictures I've uploaded are pretty dark.
The continents have different time of day and lighting depending on the location.
For example South America has lighting to fit the dense rain forest you are in.

Regarding a gameplay video:

Tomorrow we will release the trailer for the game.
This will show in-game footage, although only a short glimpse.
I don't think it will provide you with enough to satisfy your curiosity, but you are still most welcome to check it out.

I doubt we will have be able to create a gameplay video prior to the release - although we would have liked to...
So for now I will simply suggest you check it out yourself directly on an iOS device, once the game is released. :-)

So is it a midnight release, or a worldwide release? This game looks like fun. But what exactly are the coins used for?
