What is purple, made of 99 percent “Squish” and has the ability to cause evil buildings to erupt in flames based on cuteness alone? I’m horrible at riddles so I’ll cut to the chase. The answer is: the hero of Toy Studio’s next puzzle adventure game, Squishy.
Squishy will star in Squishy’s Revenge for mobile devices. It is a puzzle adventure game based on logic puzzles. Everyone in the Toy Studio office has fallen in love with the purple monster full of adorable mischief and would love for others to fall in love with Squishy too.
If you are wondering more about the game, we actually tested the concept without writing a single line of code. Even the algorithm to shuffle the maps was designed with jellybeans we have around thanks to the candy we have in the office thanks to Candy Dream. A few of us were brought into the “War Room” and told to figure out a logic puzzle based on arrows. Everyone who got to test the odds and ends prototype of Squishy’s Revenge loved the challenge and the way the game flowed.
There is a story tied to why Squishy is out for revenge. An evil city decided to construct skyscrapers in Squishy’s world and Squishy didn’t like that one bit. Instead of going in guns blazing, Squishy uses a secret weapon: being adorable. Squishy is so adorable that it makes evil burst into flames. However, Squishy needs a bit of direction and that is where you, the player, come in. Make a path for Squishy to follow so that he doesn’t fall into a hole or walk off the edge.
The excitement is at an all time high in the studio for Squishy’s Revenge and we can’t wait to share more of the game with you later this week. Next diary, we’ll be discussing how Squishy was born.
