Today I am announcing that an Eskimo Bob game is in development, and the Spoony Bard Productions website is going to be used as the official development blog. The game is an arcade-style 2D side-scrolling shooter and will be developed using Unity. It will initially be published for PC with a possible release on mobile devices. Depending on interest in the project, developing the game in Unity could allow for eventual release on other platforms as well.
This game will be a reimagining of a project that was in development a few years ago that was never completed or released. It is being recreated from scratch using new assets based on the attempted Kickstarter relaunch of Eskimo Bob from last year. If you’d like an idea of what we’re going for, the first two levels of the unfinished Flash version of the game are playable here, right now. Let me know what you think!
