At Oointah Games everything is on the table and this week we’ve been shoveling through ideas for “what next?”
While the world is focused on AR, VR, nuclear war, and equality for all we’ve been looking for the holy grail of concepts.
What is better than a Match-3?
A Match-2. Boom!
You may wonder where our ideas come from, well, do you remember the crazy hitchhiker in There’s Something About Mary?
The scene goes like this…
Hitchhiker: You heard of this thing, the 8-Minute Abs?
Ted: Yeah, sure, 8-Minute Abs. Yeah, the exercise video.
Hitchhiker: Yeah, this is going to blow that right out of the water. Listen to this: 7… Minute… Abs.
Ted: Right. Yes. OK, all right. I see where you’re going.
Hitchhiker: Think about it. You walk into a video store, you see 8-Minute Abs sittin’ there, there’s 7-Minute Abs right beside it. Which one are you gonna pick, man?
Ted: I would go for the 7.
Hitchhiker: Bingo, man, bingo. 7-Minute Abs. And we guarantee just as good a workout as the 8-minute folk.
Ted: You guarantee it? That’s – how do you do that?
Hitchhiker: If you’re not happy with the first 7 minutes, we’re gonna send you the extra minute free. You see? That’s it. That’s our motto. That’s where we’re comin’ from. That’s from “A” to “B”.
That is some wisdom right there.
And like with the 8-Minute Abs, if you don’t like our Match-2 the game will automatically allow for Match-3’s, 4’s, 5’s and more. No quibbles, quarrels or confusion.
It’s the future of casual gaming and pinnacle of simplification as most levels will literally solve themselves.
Gaming world. You’re welcome.
