Holy cow, I’m excited about this! Developed in collaboration with Revolutionary Concepts, and published by Konami, Gesundheit! is now available in the Apple App Store (iPhone/iPad)! It’s been getting some great initial reviews, too: 9.5/10 from IGN, 5/5 from TouchArcade, 4.5/5 from TouchGen, 4.5/5 from 148Apps, 8/10 from Eurogamer, and App of the Day on Kotaku.
Gesundheit! tells the story of little green pig with allergies who narrowly escapes when evil snot-eating monsters invade his village. Finding courage he never knew he had, he sets out to rescue his friends armed with nothing but his runny nose. With hand drawn graphics and an original musical score, Gesundheit! features stealthy arcade-puzzle action as you guide our sniffly hero on his quest across 40 unique and increasingly challenging levels, filled with enemies, traps, and a dash of grossness.
What started as a little personal project several years ago (the PC prototype, built with AGS, was showcased back at IGF 2008) has grown into something a lot bigger, and it was really great working with RC on this version. They did the code while I did the art, animation and music, and we collaborated on expanding and reworking the design for iOS. It was super sweet being able to focus 100% on artsy stuff this time–got to “remaster” assets in high res, better animation, etc, plus there’s a bunch of totally new content. I’m so excited to finally release a full version!
