[prMac.com] Montreal, Quebec - Caffeinated indie game studio, Not a Hipster Coffee Shop (NAHCS) has announced the release of its first game, #REALBIRD_REAL for iOS 7 devices. On March 13th, #REALBIRD_REAL became available as a free (and ad free) download, which is considerably less than a cup of coffee. The game had a soft launch in early March, and has now been updated and prepared for a widespread release.
#REALBIRD_REAL is a blend between an artistic statement and an arcade game, inspired by Dong Nguyen and the Flappy Jam. This game explores mechanics and experience design as a medium for artistic statements and social commentary, and is a breath of fresh air in an App Store filled with thoughtless Flappy Bird clones. Below is the iTunes app description:
"#REALBIRD_REAL is our take on one of the most popular caffeine creations out there today," explained Jak Tiano, co-founder of NAHCS. "We took the core idea of the Flappuccino, but used a dark, earthy roast as the base. We then give it a thorough blending with reality, and top it off with a dash of feels. The result is a dark, reflective experience that may cause you to question how you treat your content creators. #REALBIRD_REAL - The real troubles of a real bird in real life."
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 7.0 or later
* 2.5 MB
