HOW DID YOU GUYS COME UP WITH THIS GAME?
Joshua: Anthony and I always wanted to create a game together. We gained a lot of inspiration from other Aussie mobile games like Crossy Road and Steppy Pants, but this is the first time we’ve ever developed a game. The idea of the game actually came from a variety show where snacks were placed on a treadmill and people had to eat the snacks as it was coming towards them.
Anthony: Yeah, so much inspiration that most of our projects didn’t work out because we tried too hard to make something original. After scrapping a whole bunch of ideas because they simply didn’t work out, I thought that we should just stick with an idea that many can relate to: eating food. After a few more minutes of brainstorming for originality, we were reminded of this show we both watched where people ate food from a treadmill as a game and I guess we just ran with that.
WHY DOES THE GAME DESIGN LOOK SO RANDOM?
Anthony: I have no idea actually. We agreed on most of the design at first but somewhere along the way I guess Josh had too much fun making models and as a result our game scene is now populated with random scenery and other obscure objects that we ended up implementing in our gameplay so I suppose everything worked out in the end. If I had to summarize it, spontaneous development I guess.
Joshua: Originally we had an arcade theme in mind with voxel graphics but eventually I became better at modelling so we stuck with low poly. The look itself was pretty much a random scene I had imagine with a conveyor belt and a mouth character eating food. But throughout the process of development I’ve added in roads, cars and other miscellaneous objects. Luckily the cars were a great way to collect coins.
