Owie Owie is out! You can get it for free right now on Android and iOS. You can also check out our launch trailer:
We’ve also received a few mentions around the web, like in Android Community and onToronto Game Devs. Owie Owie has also made the rounds on mobile gaming YouTube, which is pretty cool.
The reviews are in: we’re sitting at a cool 5 stars on Android and we’re all positive on iOS. None of us are surprised, because we know the game is perfect. :) Seriously though, thanks to everyone for their feedback!
We’ve also pushed out two updates since launch to address some of the what we’ve been hearing. Let’s take a “behind the scenes” look at the patch notes!
Some players had trouble understanding certain platforms without dying a bunch of times. By taking them through a consistent sequence that introduced (almost) everything, we hope to make the new player experience a bit smoother.
George’s power-ups make the game more fun and are key if you want to get a really high score. To let everyone try them out, we’ve scattered free samples randomly throughout each level.
We were seeing that ads played way too often, so we decreased their frequency significantly. To rebalance the no-ads in-app purchase, we souped it up by doubling the value of every bug collected!
Although a lot of George’s world is procedural, we’ve included pre-made sequences to spice things up. In v1.0.1 we added at least 50 more.

A look at the intro tutorial.
Because we wanted George do crash into things realistically, we made sure each body part collided with equal force. Sometimes, however, his limbs would decide to, uhh, separate. This should happen much less often now. Sorry George. :)
Sometimes when Ape would save George, George would start flipping in the air on each jump. Although it looked cool occasionally, it usually just looked broken. Now it’s fixed!
