Digital Dreams releases "Cowbeam" intro animation to celebrate launch on App Store (link).
While the Curiosity has made its landing on Mars, Hank has touched down on Earth. Dutch indie development studio Digital Dreams released its first iOS game “Cowbeam” together with an animated short telling the story of Hank the alien.
"Cowbeam" can best be described as a singleplayer “Who is it?” with planets, where you must gather hints that point you towards the right planet where a cow resides. These hints range from the planet’s color to its size, and from the vegetation to the amount of moons orbiting around the planet.
The cows you’ll find resemble the planets they live on. When the planet is red, the cow is red, if the planet is close to the sun, the cow could wear sunglasses or a sombrero, etcetera.
They are stored in canisters and become a colorful collection. There are some very special cows to be found throughout galaxies as well, so try to find them all!
"Cowbeam” is available to download from the App Store as a universal app in HD for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
The game is priced at $1.99 USD/€1.59 EUR. But this week it will go for only $0.99 USD/€0.79 EUR.
About the intro movie
