Description

Flippin' Phones is a fast-paced, (no-) nonsense action game that's suitable to play in short sessions. Flip as many phones as possible, rescue humanity, and avoid those cops who are too ignorant to see that you're saving the world! BlauwPrint is building a mobile version that's a vast improvement over the game jam prototype, with more stores, more cop types and all-new graphics. While this is still in development, you can play the game jam prototype at at the link on the left.

History

This game was created during the Indie Gameleon 2014 game jam located in Groningen, the Netherlands. The theme was M.C. Escher's work "Relativity". Since it displayed, amongst others, a lot of people that all looked the same and didn't acknowledge each others' presence. This inspired BlauwPrint to take the 'mindless' people aspect, which reminded them of people only paying attention to their phones. In 48 hours, the game was very playable, and based on feedback, very enjoyable. BlauwPrint was convinced that Flippin' Phones was a concept worth expanding. After a couple more days of polishing, Flippin' Phones was released to itch.io as a pay-what-you-want-nothing-counts-too download. After that, the guys at BlauwPrint decided that the game still had more to it, so they started working on a mobile version with more content and all-new visuals, which if all goes right will see the light of day in Q4 of 2014.
