2day & 2morrows Creations, the creator of “the Sneables, has announced that they are looking to bring their brand into the PC game market.
If you’ve never heard of the Sneables, they are characters that Michael Pellegrino created. He describes them as,”The Sneables is an army of cute and hilarious characters on a quest to make you smile! They bring back laughter, fun, and joy in your life with their unique personalities and mimic our thoughts and feelings, providing you a colorful and humorous way to express yourself.” He uses the characters in the form of merchandise such as t-shirts, cups, stationary, and other commodities.
There will be a cash prize awarded for the best game idea; Michael Pellegrino is not expecting large game design documents or extensive game-play: To begin with the challenge is to come up with a great idea and to submit this idea through www.sneables.com where further information about the cash prize and contest details will be available in January, 2010. The game has to be easy to play, intuitive, fun, and cute.
Michael Pellegrino stated:
Everyone is encouraged to come up with the best game idea for a Sneables based PC game! To begin with, the game will be made available as a digital download product, but who knows – some day it might become a retail product too!
While I’m curious to figure out exactly how much they’re offering (as I might take a swing at it), I don’t find the characters much useful for a game. Most of the characters seem to resemble different colored triangles (see their website) that have been given clothes. For a game, this will most likely lead to highly stereotypical (boring) characters.
