“When he first brought us the drawings we weren’t sure what to expect”, says app developer Aaron Bertsch, “but we’ve always known he’s very creative, and what he brought us was just brilliant in its simplicity. As a game it was easily recognizable and yet completely unique. We thought it was a great idea.”
The finished game has kept the original name, Plantific Ocean, but has a few added features. It’s an obstacle course where you draw the path that the character, Thomas, takes from start to finish. You also craft the objects he needs to counter the various obstacles he encounters along the way. Because the different paths you build also use up resources, it is important to manage your resources and choose the path that allows you to build the road as well as the objects you need to complete the course.
The app will be free to download on release March 22nd 2014, with the option of purchasing additional map packs. A number of free map packs will be released each year, as well as more in-app purchase map packs of various themes. Initially the app will only be available for iPad and iPhone, but is planned to eventually be released for Windows Phone and Android as well.
