[prMac.com] Oslo, Norway - Nor Eagle today announced that Insulting Monk(TM) is now available for purchase. The iPhone/iPod touch application features a hand-animated monk delivering humorous insults whenever he is touched. It is also possible to give the monk a smacking when you've had enough of his venomous tongue.
T. Benjamin Larsen, Nor Eagle CEO, Creative Director and hand-model was unsurprisingly enthusiastic about the release: "We're very happy to see 'Insulting Monk' finally being released to the public. We've probably spent way too much time on a title of this nature, but I think the production values are among the best seen in this genre!"
Asked about what Insulting Monk delivers that other insult-generators doesn't he said this: "Did I mention the production values? Seriously, I think our app offers more of an environment the user will want to spend time with. Our goal is to make sure that over time 'Insulting Monk' won't be just an insult generator, it will be THE insult generator." he replied.
Whether the app manages to live up to its developer's ambitions remains to be seen. At least the amount of attention this independent developed application has attracted seems substantial if the activity on Twitter is anything to go by.
"Of course the number and, even more so quality, of the insults are important. But I think creating an environment that's inviting to the user is of equal importance. But perhaps it all comes down to having the possibility to slap the monk when you've had enough. Who wouldn't enjoy on-the-go-monk-smacking!? Our biggest achievement could be that we've added injury to insult!" Mr. Larsen concluded.
* iPhone or iPod touch 2.2.1 or later

Insulting Monk 1.0 is only $0.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Entertainment category.
