So the Aussie development scene, in regards to PC and consoles and big Triple-A titles is almost non-existent. It's a sad state of affairs, and until our respective state and federal governments step up and come up with some more lucrative solutions, it's going to be that way for a while.
On the other side of the coin, however, is a plethora of great development talent on our shores, and a mobile platform easy enough to develop for, and self-publish through, that the small Aussie indie scene is exploding. We've already seen the likes of Fruit Ninja, Flight Control, Real Racing, Stickman Skater and BMX and more make a massive impact on the mobile market (and some beyond), so we've decided it's time to actively support this bustling scene.
So every Friday, we'll be highlighting a new entry from an Aussie indie developer in the mobile/browser space in an effort to raise awareness and get some momentum behind what has the potential to blossom into a much more robust local industry, beginning this week with Super Lemonade Factory.
Post World War II, a region in political turmoil. Andre’s father offers to give him his lemonade factory – but on one condition; he and his wife, Liselot, must journey through the entire factory, a task that is easier said than done.
Andre and Liselot must combine their unique abilities to make it through each room together. Along the way they’ll meet a cast of characters including the foreman, the chef, a food inspector and a general who wants the factory to supply drinks to the military, now engaged in a new war.
Developed by Sydney-based Initials Video Games, Super Lemonade Factory is a throwback platform puzzle title that will rekindle memories of classic 8-bit gaming for those of us old enough to remember, and provide a decent puzzle-based challenge for all who pick it up. On top of the base game, it also features the option to build your own custom levels to submit to Initials Vide Games to be included in future updates.
To celebrate the launch, the game is currently retailing on the App Store at 50% off the usual AUD$1.99 price-point. Check out our more in-depth game page for more details.
