An Epic Adventure

Meet SnailBoy, A cheeky garden mollusc super obsessed with his quest for the perfect shell.

We wanted a captivating and unconventional hero who was fresh, loveable and a little cheeky and spent months racking our brains for the right concept for our game to be centered around. Snails weren’t making
headlines, nor were they saving lives or traveling on epic adventures. They were only believed to be “slow.” So we turned that fallacy on its head and subsequently we had stumbled upon our hero. And the rest fell into place.

Rather than being a regular platformer, we used physics puzzles to let gamers advance through the levels. An Angry Birds-style arc is drawn on screen to help dictate Snailboy’s jump path to the next platform or collectible item.
