Hi guys!

I've been inactive for a while, but thats because I just finished my brand new game.

Please, keep in mind I'm only 16 years old. Any constructive criticism is wanted!

Introducing.. FAT CHICKS!

This September prepare to live life on the edge of a box in the brand new game, Fat Chicks. Meet the fun and lovable chicks who you will guide through over 30 levels of puzzle solving action with the tap of your finger.

Play as the Fat Chicks.. Zoey, Cessy, Calley, Eliza, Flo, and Harley as you embark on a quest to the save the baby chicks from being turned into a kids meal. The game takes the concept of search and rescue to new heights as you go through a maze of boxes and the only way out is to use you’re head. Playable for all ages!

    hey man this looks crazy fun. i love ur logo for 1, but hated your birds. and it wouldn't be constructive if i just hated it. The reason is they have too much of a stereotype characteristic. and i don't know if that will work for you. It looks like the game or scene doesn't have to do with the persona they are trying to portray. so i'd say remove the stereotypical persona and just let the chicks carry their name/color/"feather style".

    an example would be sonic the hedgehog. it's an ambiguous persona that you wonder where this guy came from so is the rest of the other characters... there's personality traits but not social stereotypes that can offend a certain people or even worst, turn people away from the game because say they never understood why cow boys wear hat or bikers wear skulls.

    just my 2 cents. hope your sales sour. send me a promocode if my crit helps you. thanx.

    p.s. nothing against cowboys or bikers. just against character stereotyping. ;)

    @ultima - I appreciate your feedback. The whole idea behind Fat Chicks is the characters. Not the game itself. I'm going to be using these characters in multiple games. I like the idea they have a personality, unlike games like.. Angry Birds. You refer to red bird as the red bird with no powerups, which I personally find stupid. I'm looking to build the characters, and make them well-known for who they are. I even have on the menu a button where you can learn more about each individual chick.

    @SlickZero - Thanks man! :D

    @UtopianGames - Sure did, credit to you for sure! Thank you, it means a lot.

    looks great mate! the lack of game play images and videos is a bit worrying... but those main characters are sweet as!

  • PhiliePhilie PRO Posts: 240
    @debugdesign - Yeah, I hear you on that. I've actually been working on new screenshots - I sort of uploaded those just so I could get the game reviewed. Now that I'm working on the press items, I'm redoing the screenshots. If you check, I do have a trailer though! Thanks for the kind words, means a lot!
  • PhiliePhilie PRO Posts: 240
    Has anyone had the chance to play the game yet? Any ideas or problems?

    @VentoraStudios - Thanks Max!

    Looks Great! Adding the extra features, moving boxes etc really make it stand out. The characters and art too look pretty smart. Im with Darren on Friday, so were going to download it, and do a full review - looking forwards to it.

    Nice one!

    I've been working really hard to get some press coverage, exposure, and what not for the game. Anyone have some good tips for marketing? Would be helpful!

    I will have new screenshots out soon.. anyone have any good ideas on how to make them really appetizing, making people want to buy the game?

    use the Useful links section for the advertising and reviews.. And if your game isnt free make it free for a day or 2 to get people to download and it will spread from there.
