mr. missile

From 2015 – 2017, I worked with a friend to create this mobile game, Mr. Missile.
We co-founded a game development company, Lacuna King Inc.; my friend did all the programming and I created all the graphics.
I learned how to make pixel graphics and pixel animations using Photoshop while also learning how to import and use them within Unity 3d, a (great) free game-making program.
It wasn’t easy, but we definitely learned a lot about game development, as well as about business, marketing, and more through the process (which is still ongoing).

We launched Mr. Missile at the end of February in 2017 for free on iOS and Android.
Try it out!

GAME DESCRIPTION

Bizarre – and arguably cute – slime is falling from the sky, consuming buildings in the cities you love, hate, and have only dreamed about. Unbelievably, only a young mechanic and her robots are doing anything to stop this. Slime-Ball-Istic Mr. Missile is a free-to-play mobile game coming to Android and iOS with simple, intuitive, retro gameplay. Players must shoot slimeballs of varying size, speed, and cuteness as they fall from the sky before they hit buildings, consuming them in disarming, slimeballey ways. The game features actual cities (not actual, but … actual) as players protect and unlock somewhat familiar buildings and landmarks from around the world. Different power-ups can also be obtained to help the eponymous missile turret Mr. Missile as he aims for great heights to save humanity – or at least some buildings they’ve made.
