Buddy & Me: friendly runner with companionship twist

Hi all-

I'm Jason from Sunbreak Games. A couple weeks ago we announced our first project in development, Buddy & Me, upcoming for iOS. It's the story of a young boy running through the treehouse-filled forest of his dreams, aided by his best friend, Buddy, a magical companion that flies by his side and helps overcome obstacles. Every night they go on adventures together, jumping, gliding, swinging, bouncing, flying, and exploring as far as they can before waking.

We wanted to do something fresh with the endless runner genre, to make something special. We didn't want to take it for granted. So we're focusing on unique gameplay mechanics that revolve around childhood companionship, an art style inspired by classic animated films, and platforming environments inspired by outdoor scenes from the Pacific Northwest (where our studio is).

If you're interested in learning more and seeing in-game footage of our prototype, check out our Kickstarter pitch and growing list of behind-the-scenes videos here on Sunbreak's YouTube channel:


There are also more details and development updates on our in-progress Kickstarter page (Link below). Let us know what you think!
