Award winning mobile app studio, Rocksauce Studios, is unleashing the fury of hell onto iPhones and iPads worldwide with their new mobile game, ‘Spinferno’. Tapping into the extraordinarily popular Kickstarter platform, Rocksauce Studios has teamed up with game creator Chris Crane and SCABFARM founder & MTV’s Liquid Television artist Bernard Gumz, to give gamers the chance to work out their anger in a more cathartic way.
Based on Dante’s classic ‘Inferno,’ gamers can choose one of several always annoying archetypes, such as the Ex, the Hipster, the Boss, the Hip-Hopper, and others. ‘Spinferno’ features the exclusive Create-A-Victim feature, allowing gamers to choose a photo from their device, crop the face of someone, and get some personal revenge.
Gameplay consists of pinball style action, as victims work their way through the 9 Circles of Hell, with a goal of inflicting as much damage as possible before the level is through. Spinferno’s Kickstarter follows in the growing trend of game companies turning directly to their target audiences to help in the funding projects directly.
“All of us have someone that’s angered us so much we just wanna kill ‘em. Spinferno gives you that chance, without fear of going to jail,” laughed Rocksauce Studios CEO, Q Manning. “Kickstarter has become the go-to platform for creatives who want to make art without compromise. Audiences want something original, that’s not watered-down because of corporate focus groups. There’s nothing politically correct about Spinferno and we love that!”
Initial plans for the game include iPhone and iPad versions. “If we exceed our fundraising goal, we’ll focus on developing Spinferno for additional platforms,” said Chris Crane, who initially contacted Rocksauce Studios with the idea of a revenge-based iPhone game. “People are already begging us to bring it to Android and XBOX!”
‘Spinferno’ kicks off it’s 45-day fundraising push today and seeks $125,000 in initial funding.
