Tug with Friends makes gaming personal with YOU as the main character, battling against your friends. Wager-Compete-Repeat!
Please 'Like' us above - every like is sacred, every like is grand
NOTE - Our actual promotional video is coming soon (this is not the most amazing promo ever, it's just a tribute ;). We're working frantically to get that and the game through beta and released this spring.
Hey - thanks for checking us out. Tug with Friends is a fun, social game played with YOU (and your friends) as the main characters. You take your pics (we call them Tug Mugs) and the game incorporates you into the action. Email us for a chance to get on our TugMug wall of fame.
Whether you're a pirate at sea, trying to concentrate while sexy mermaids chum your screen, or a rockstar avoiding drunken zombie groupies, you'll LOL seeing yourself and friends chummed, groped, and crabbed throughout the game.
We're also addicted to betting (betcha didn't know that - we win!) so TWF lets you bet your friends for fun (and hopefully soon merchandise and prizes). Wager, compete, repeat!
VellaGames is the crew behind TWF. We're a social melting pot of passionate geeks, artists, and start-up junkies that love the potential the mobile gaming environment brings to social, personal, competitive games. Tug is our first release with several additional games in this genre on the design table ready for production. Anyone for Celebrity Tug? Oh yeah.
We're looking to grow VellaGames as virally as possible. Support like yours will aid us in developing additional scenes and characters for TWF, porting to other platforms (launching across iOS first), marketing and initiating development on our next designs.
Where we are at:
TWF is in beta and progressing extremely well through development and testing. We anticipate launching within the next sixty days.
