A few months ago, I’ve met the founders of a mobile game development studio based in San Francisco, CA (they also have teams in Paris and Argentina): Pixowl (backed by a lot of tech entrepreneurs) Not only are they the nicest people I’ve met in a long time but they’re also extremely talented! A great combo to start a friendship! Adrien is one of the best mobile developer I know and Laurel is a great artist doing all the illustration for their games (and has a very cool blog showcasing her work)
Today, they have a very successful Minecraft type of game which is doing really good on the Apple Store and they’re working on the second version of their other flagship game: Greedy Grub. Some of you might remember Snake from the early 80′s. This new version of Grub is Snake on mobile steroid!
My kids played the first version of the game and you can bet that when they’ve heard that the second version was on the horizon, they wanted to be involved! They’re the perfect beta testers and provide tons of feedback (Pixowl uses HockeyApp to manage the beta of Grub which has a very nifty feature to add feedback directly in the game. Very handy!)
There is today only one playable level but Grub is already very addictive. I had a glimpse of what’s coming and I think I will soon get rid of candy crush!
If you like games and want to be involved in the feedback process, join the Grub beta today!
Note: I have no affiliation with pixowl. I just like games, testing and Adrien makes really good crepes!
