Looks interesting but I wish the trailer actually showed more of the gameplay versus the 1/2 second blips you show.

Seeing the gameplay trailer, it uses the Angry Bird control mechanism for a platformer. Can't recall any game doing it like this before, so it's certainly a new take on controlling a touchscreen platformer.

 

The visuals...well they look really good. Great job with that. The realism is in one word, astounding! Keep us posted when you have a release date or something!

 

And I'm embedding the gameplay footage below for everyone's benefit:

Nice. But I guess the Android version will be out in October now?

 

Also, what's the status of IAPs in the game?

This game is beautiful and a blast to play, you guys won't be disappointed! The graphics are some of the best i've seen for a mobile platformer, they use the Oddworld/DonkeyKong prerendered graphics technique to great success.

Wow! :o That's what you call a console challenging title! :lol: I mean that the graphics employed in here are absolutely amazing, seriously unseen till date I’ll say! And talking about the gameplay, addictive and catchy are the only words coming to my mind. I highly recommend the title.  ^_^
