One Trick Turtle

Project: Mobile Game    Role: Design Director     Year: 2015


One Trick Turtle was a collaboration between my friends, Phillip Peterson, Danny Nielsen, and myself (Grinder Monkey Games). Inspired by the Flappy Bird craze we decided to give app making a go. We created an endless runner style game where you took control of a turtle and had to jump the gap between floating islands without falling to your death.

I was in charge of all visual direction while they handled all the backend work. Occupied by our full time jobs, in different parts of the country, the completion of this app took us just under a year. The backend programing as well as graphics were 100% authentic.
