My flash game For The Twin
which I made for the recent AGBIC competition has finally been released!
It features seven original chiptunes I composed for the game and countless animating backgrounds and alien creatures.
The basic gameplay is one of finding the identical twin to match the goal but it isn't as easy as it sounds.
Their are six different challenges with highscores and medals to win.
The alien twins dance to the music as you attempt to identify the correct match.
My goal was to make a game that would have appeal to more than just teenage boys flash audience--I wanted women and children to enjoy the game as well--hoping that each would be able to take something different away from it. So far feedback from all demographics has been really good!
The artwork in the game was inspired by this fake Famicase game cover

I kept a complete development diary
for the game here in the competition thread.
After the competition was finished I put my game up over at Flash Game License
to find a primary sponsorship.
I was pleased to secure a nice sponsorship from Spil Games
for their Family Portal Group. I handed a massive translation file over to them and they had my game localized into 13 different languages for distribution across their 50 or so arcade portals worldwide. The exposure potential is huge to say the least. The game has already received almost
500K views since it started being published by them on Oct 7th. VIEW PUBLIC VIEW STATS HERE
You can also play the game at Newgrounds
or over on Kongregate
if you would like leaderboards and achievments.
All told I'm quite pleased with the game. I decided to take a genre I didn't really like (find the match) and make a game that tried to explore it the best I could given the 1 month competition time limit. I am also very thankful that I was then able to successfully monetize the game as well which is critical to my small game studio. Besides the primary sponsorship I have already begun lining up secondary non-exclusive licenses which is quite exciting to see so much interest so soon.
Give For The Twin
a play and I'd love to hear any feedback--thanks so much!
