Acclaimed One-Man Debut Game Released June 4th on the App Store
PRESS RELEASE, June 1st, 2015What started out as an after work hobby project has taken Glad Game Studio founder Juho Glad around the world to some of the most esteemed gaming gatherings: Juho’s debut game FALLMAN – Super Ridiculous Trampoline Jumping has been showcased in major events such as PAX East 2015 Indie MEGABOOTH and EGX London 2014 Leftfield Collection. The game was a crowd favorite in Games First Helsinki 2015 hosted by Supercell and placed 2nd in a Pocket Gamer Big Indie Pitch.
FALLMAN is a humorous and visually stunning trampoline jumping sports action game starring a former 80’s trampoline hero. The purpose of the game is to keep the guy jumping while performing insane trick combinations in the air by tapping, swiping and rotating. And not getting hit by a giant boulder while at it!
One Man Starting from ZeroThe story of FALLMAN is nothing like the gaming startup stories we usually hear coming from Helsinki, Finland: No dream team of industry veterans, zero funding. To the contrary, FALLMAN graphics, game design, audio and coding are all done entirely by one person with no previous experience in the games industry or software development.
Being a self-funded one-man operation also has its benefits though: Juho has complete artistic freedom and has been able to execute his vision for FALLMAN uncompromisingly. Mimicking current mobile game trends was not an option for Juho who set out to do something different: “I wanted to make a game I’d love to find on the App Store, a game with tons of personality. I’m really humbled by the reception so far – even though I haven’t sold a single copy yet, I feel I’ve already accomplished more than I ever could’ve hoped for my first game” states Juho.
FALLMAN – Super Ridiculous Trampoline Jumping is available on the App Store on June 4th for $1,99
