Hi everyone,

This is Kira from Taiwan, I would like to introduce you to my upcoming game -- Roll Turtle.
It is an easy to play, but challenging, action driven puzzle platform.

Here is the preview video that will appear on the Appstore (30 seconds)

I was very fortunate and grateful to be part of many big events; Tokyo Game Show, Indie Game Area 2015 and the Casual Connect Asia's Indie Prize 2015. I also had the chance to grab some prizes along the way!
*If you were there, perhaps you have some impression of my game.

What makes Roll Turtle special, is that I tried as much as possible to give you a taste of the past, when it was all about a console, plugged to a TV in the living room, the controller and you!

It was very important for us to share the love for this era within our game and keep it as authentic as possible. This is why there is no IAPS, no Ads, no need for a network connection, and many unlockables and secretes to unlock.

Roll in the snow, in the forest, or even in the sky! Defeat the very mean bunny who stole your eggs at the end of each world! Be sure to put some headphones on to fully appreciate all the little details of the soundtrack!

Roll Turtle is available on the App Store nowRoll Turtle will be released on Thursday, May 19, 2016 on the iTunes AppStore, as a premium title at the price of $2.99.

Available on the App Store now:


Here are game features:
• Casual gameplay combining platformer, puzzles, and challenging with innovative level design.
• 5 different worlds with 100+ truly unique levels and boss level.

• Memorable, fun and unique soundtrack, with a different theme for each world!
• No iap, No ads, with the progress of the game to unlock everything.
• Universal app optimized for iPhones, iPods and iPads.

    @wolala123 謝謝你的支持 :smile:
    @gingagaming not yet, but if iTunes app store Link is available, I'll update it, thank you.

    On the eve Roll Turtle launch, I want to talk about Roll Turtle dev story, It was a long journey, if you are interested in Roll Turtle, you can read it.

    Dev log - 0108 Final Chapter - On the eve Roll Turtle launch

    I have been a full time Indie Developer since 2014. I quit my regular job to create "Roll Turtle". At that time my son was born, he gave me the courage and inspiration to create something for him.

    Since becoming self-employed, I have received no income and have been living off my life savings. I have a home mortgage, a baby and a family to take care of. It is a big risk and difficult journey. But when my baby grows up in 5 or 10 years, I hope that his favorite games are made by his father. Well at least one of his favorite games is made by me.

    I would like share every game development experience, play the game with him and just chat all day :)

    "This game is funny? This game was created by your father when you were 2 years old!"

    I want to tell him this story,
    I want to see him raised his head and eyes to his father,
    I want to him proud of his father.

    This is a difficult decision,
    when you not a young man, when you have a baby,
    when you have home mortgage loans.

    I am grateful to my wife for her encouragement.
    She told me "just do it!"

    「Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results。」
    ~by Einstein

    I know that if I continue to stay with my regular job, this would never have happened. Things would be probably be just fine and secure, but you won't know unless you give it a shot. If you want something, you have to do something about it.

    Special thanks to my wife for her support. I did all the development on Roll Turtle except for the sound design. I never wanted to say that I'm a one man Indie developer, because without my wife and baby, I could never of completed Roll Turtle. (Although my baby frequently climbs on my lap and wants to type on the keyboard... this drives me insane)

    As a family,
    we push Roll Turtle forward,
    we adventure together, travel together, laugh together, cry together,
    we setup the monitor together, carry laptop in the rain,
    we pulled luggage, stroller and equipment in the sun,
    we participated in Causal Connect Asia 2015, Tokyo Game Show 2015, Taipei Game Show 2016...etc,
    we've been through all of this together,
    Roll Turtle filled me, my wife and baby with love and memories of the past 2 years.

    Thanks to God, these memories will be my life's most precious treasures.

    Roll Turtle is another one of my babies.
    If you love action puzzle game,
    if you love stand-alone consoles game,
    if you love adventure stories that have beginning and end,
    if you love cute characters and fairy tales,
    if you love to only pay once for a truly complete game,
    you must try Roll Turtle :)

    Roll Turtle will be release on iTunes App Store May 19, 2016!

    *Roll Turtle development has come to a close. I hope that after the launch Roll Turtle can earn enough to help support the development the next game. This is the hope of most Indie developers : "Use funds from the previous game to support the next game". I understand that achieving this is out of my control even after doing all that I can do to make Roll Turtle great.

    If you like Roll Turtle, please introduce it to your friends to play or share any information about Roll Turtle with others. This would help me tremendously.

    A Big thanks to all my supporters! :smile:
