This weekend is here, and if you have some car travel or down time ahead, I have the perfect new app for you and your family. Boston-based, Emmy-nominated studio CloudKid has officially launched their first game for the iOS platform,Negative Nimbus. Those familiar with the work of CloudKid (“Fizzy’s Lunch Lab”) should expect the same candy-colored, bold and innovative design – priced at only $.99.
Already awarded “best visual and design” at the Boston Festival of Indie Games, “Negative Nimbus” focuses on a lovable and grouchy rain-cloud as he makes his way through the brightly colored Sunnyland. Players tap, swipe and pinch their way through different levels, trying to water flowers while avoiding the quirky characters that populate the sunshiny land CloudKid has created. The game includes unlockable achievements to keep players engaged, including comics, accessories and badges.
The visuals in this app truly speak for themselves, with a few samples below.
Negative Nimbus is available for the iPad and will hit the iPhone in November 2012.
