[prMac.com] Dublin, Ireland - Irish indie developers Sneaky Vegetables today is thrilled to announce the launch of their first game 'Round The Block on the App Store. 'Round The Block is a 3D-Drawing game where the player's drawings become part of the game world. The hero, Igor, must escape the robot overlords and needs an artist's help!
Using guides within the game, the player can draw a rocket, a car or even a hot-air balloon to assist Igor's getaway. Players progress through the game by learning to draw basic 3D shapes at first, then use these fundamentals to construct more complex images.
Designed as an educational app for aged 4 , 'Round The Block enables the player to understand the fundamental drawing principles. Known as orthographic 3D, these drawing principles are the foundation skill for budding animators, architects, and designers. 'Round the Block brings together instructional content with compelling gameplay, enabling the player to learn something new that will enhance his/her skill-sets long after the game has ended.
There is a perception that in order to develop your drawing skills you must have natural creative talent. This is not true, anyone can draw. 3D drawing is a technique anybody can learn and one which can be developed through practice. This belief was the primary driver for 'Round The Block'.
