Donut Pirate is now available to download on iOS AppStore, for free! :)
Donut Pirate is my new take on endless catch & dodge game, designed for casual gamers like myself, I used to play large AAA games on consoles, since I got my iPhone, the way of gaming and my taste of game has changed quite a lot, the convenience of smartphone made me lazier, so lazy I can’t even bother to insert disc into gaming console :P
so this is my first attempt to design a game for the lazies, a very simple game where player tilt the device to control Donut Pirate, catch as many yummy donuts as they can! Look out for bombs & fire falling from the sky. Tilt, swipe and tap to survive the dangerous world of falling donuts!
Craving for some donuts now? feed your iPhone/iPad with Donut Pirate! :-)
Donut Pirate is a casual game I’ve been working on for over 2 months, with some helps from friends and family, it’ll finally see the light in a few days!
It started with a simple donut catching idea involving my Donut Pirate character and a lot of donutsssss! and the first thing came to mind is OLLA BOKU‘s cute donut drawings, so instead of me doing donut designs from scratch(likely end up something similar to OLLA’s), I thought it’d be fun to get her involve in the project, and I talked to OLLA about the game concept, she has been extremely supportive and easy to work with, contributed her large library of delicious donuts, allowed me to mess around with her designs to fit the game’s art style!
OLLA BOKU not only draws donut, she also makes them….in wool! below are her handmade wool-plush donuts – LuLu & her partner, they are my favorite donuts from OLLA, which also appeared in the game! Thank you OLLA!
Donut Pirate game also sees contribution from Jason Liao, a fresh design graduate/game enthusiast/friend, he sketched some fire & explosion animation for the game, and they are something you probably don’t want to see in the game LOL(hints gameplay). Oh BTW…the game voice over was done by my 4 years old nephew Caleb! hope I don’t get sued over child labor… :P
thanks to everyone helped making this game, it’ll be available on App Store from 29 April…..for FREE! ❤
