Eggggg - The Platform Puker is a ridiculous two-touch platform runner about vomit. It's an action packed and crazy experience. Gilbert has an extreme allergy to eggs. Eating them will literally make him vomit like a fountain. He escapes from his mean aunt Doris in order to get to a birthday party, and needs to use his vomiting superpower to survive a world of angry cyborg chickens... of course. The game is inspired by platforming adventures like the Super Mario-series, where the world is full of secrets and nooks and crannies to explore. Eggggg has lots of hand-crafted levels in several different worlds, each with their own mechanics and visuals. We try to respect the players' time and want to have fewer levels that all feel unique and interesting, rather than 100s of levels that feel like more of the same. Each level has several collectables and a super secret item to collect. The control scheme of the mobile version of Eggggg has been one of the main challenges - as mobile platformers are infamous for bad controls. We really wanted to avoid on-screen buttons and virtual joysticks, and this was the reason we ended up with two-button controls. Although the controls can be a bit confusing at first - it offers really good control once you get through a couple of levels, and we are very happy with it! For PC and consoles the game has the same control scheme, but with actual buttons in stead. When making a game about vomiting, we found it very important to get a visual style that is cute as candy - to make it all a bit less nauseating. We got in touch with the amazing Spanish illustrators Brosmind (www.brosmind.com) to do the overall Art Direction, and the Academy Award winning animators Mikrofilm to make it all come to life.
The game is made in collaboration with the Norwegian movie producer Maipo Film who were working on the movie "Gilbert's Cruel Revenge". The movie is about a boy with severe egg allergy, and they asked us to do a tie-in game. There are several scenes in the movie where the main character vomits, but the game takes the vomiting to another level. In Eggggg puking is ALL you do.
