IGDA Playtest Winner Splemy Coming to Windows Phone This Month

The winner of the IGDA playtest and BAFTA-nominated (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) game Splemy is bouncing over to Windows Phone devices this March.

Splemy is a bouncy little yellow person “born out of the primordial soup.” In this physics-based puzzle platformer, the player stretches Splemy and then launches him around, collecting little Lills on the way. While evading deadly obstacles and unfriendly creatures, Splemy sling-shoots around using helpful objects in the environment – like fans and portals – to complete around 75 levels.

The game originated as a 48-hour Global Game Jam project called Shplem.  This  is studio Formerdroid Ltd’s first project venture, backed by Microsoft’s “Bizspark” and “App Campus” initiatives.

Splemy is coming out sometime this month for Windows Phone as a timed exclusive, but will become available for other platforms 3 months after. Check out the great graphics and music, along with the zany levels, in the gameplay trailer above.

Luke has wide interests in games, from compelling fighting, action, and RPG titles to deeper interactive, storytelling titles that push today's genres and boundaries - especially awesome if they're related to diversity. Feel free to reach out on Twitter or via email.
