Captain Bubblenaut Rolls to iOS Later This Month
There's something about a fun, offbeat mobile game that makes us all happy inside. That's what Dean Tate, a veteran designer behind Bioshock and Dance Central, intends to deliver this month with the upcoming Captain Bubblenaut.
The game, made in conjunction with Owen Macindoe at MIT Gamelab, has you rolling an alien sphere on Earth, running over humans while using hills to keep your momentum. Be careful, though. One wrong bounce could end your run. Humans also pose a threat, whether you accidentally bump into clown hair or come across one carrying a shield. What a jerk.
With 8-bit style graphics and a unique soundtrack, Captain Bubblenaut should have no trouble finding an audience. You can watch the trailer below.
