[prMac.com] Long Beach, New York - Back in Late January 2015, New York based Chunky Apps and TimeDriven Games teamed up to launch the first "Deflate-Gate" game through the iOS and Google Play App stores in response to the accusations that the New England Patriots were involved in deflating footballs during the AFC championship game. Like any fan or casual observer, the developers had no idea what the results of any investigations would deliver.
Three months later, the release of the Wells Report fingers select New England Patriots personnel as "more likely than not" aware of and involved in the infractions. The ruling comes as a reminder that the NFL is a big business with many layers. With the release of the Deflate-Gate game, fans can participate in the simulated football deflating activities from an entertainment perspective, but avoid the complex and pending emotional fallout sure to come from the findings of Wells' report.
"The release of our game sought to provide levity for our close friends and NFL fans after watching this years AFC championship game. At Chunky Apps we transform contentious and sometimes challenging situations into a fun experience where everyone can walk away with a smile and good energy. The gameplay is simple, fun and puts you in the mind and body of an equipment employee trying to outsmart the referee. The result delivers fun no matter which team you root for." said developer Noah Malewicz.
Deflate-Gate is a "speed-of-completion" roleplay game in the Free-to-Play format for iOS and Android devices. Players become an equipment employee responsible for deflating 12 footballs down to 10.5 PSI as fast as one can before the big game without being caught by a constantly peering official. The exhilarating experience of being on the field and in-the game is what sets Deflate-Gate apart from other games. In the animated, cartoon style that Chunky Apps and TimeDriven Games are known for, a football, a visible air pressure-gauge and an ever inquisitive referee are on screen and within the same proximity. Simply stated, "something has to be done". Users must avoid the referee while using a seamless press-and-lift thumbplay motion to decrease the ball air pressure as quickly as possible.
"The initial reception of our Deflate-Gate game has been very good so far," said Malewicz. "People are starting to catch on and enjoy the gameplay. We're confident that with the recent Wells investigation ruling, even more players will download it and enjoy the fun."
* Intuitive user interface
* Unique gameplay
* Excellent cartoon graphics, animation and sounds
Chunky Apps and TimeDriven Games continue to deliver on that rare combination of sweet graphics, intuitive game play, and a gripping storyline that can keep you going for hours. Said Malewicz, "It's always been more than just a game to us. We always want to take pivotal, emotional events and channel them towards the bright side. With Deflate-Gate, we're re-directing that frustrated sports fan towards a smile. The world can stand to have a good laugh. I'm confident people will enjoy playing it as much as we have enjoyed creating it."
