Machweo - an endless runner [new game] [free]
Hey guys, Vivek Bigelow and I, Zachary Feldcamp, recently shipped our first game, Machweo, to the iOS app store. We're just starting out in the industry and we'd love if you could spread the word about our game.
Machweo is an endless runner for iPhone where the player draws a path for a running character. The object of the game is to have the player run as far as possible while avoiding obstacles in the form of masks of gradually increasing difficulty. The character leaves behind a pile of stones called a “cairn” at the location of her furthest distance which also posted to a leaderboard for friends and competitors to see.
Machweo’s art style describes simple scenes in various natural environments. The time of day progresses from the player’s local time. For instance, if the player starts Machweo at 12 pm, then the sun will be high in the sky, everything will be bright, and birds will be chirping. The game has an upbeat rhythmic track which plays when the game is in action, and ends when the player hits a mask.
Machweo was developed by Vivek Bigelow and Zachary Feldcamp, two students at Indiana University Bloomington.
Vivek Bigelow, 20, drew all of the visuals and edited the sounds for Machweo.
Zachary Feldcamp, 22, programmed Machweo.
Thanks for reading, Zack.
