Video Update: Basic Gameplay of Buddy & Me
Hello Buddy & Me fans!
Fresh off of yesterday’s Android Support announcement, we have a cool new video to share with you. In the following video update, Sunbreak’s Creative Director Jason Behr takes you on a straightforward walkthrough of the basic gameplay mechanics and scoring planned for Buddy & Me’s initial release, including updated game footage straight from the iPad:
With more support from Kickstarter fans, we’d like to elaborate on those basics, expanding the number of obstacles, Buddy Assists, and variety of pickups in the environment. We’d also like to create a customization system, where players can exchange the Star Seeds they’ve collected for different outfits, upgrades, and mini-game modes. For example, a "Build a Treehouse" mode where players can over time expand a tree house piece by piece, for Angel Bunnies to live and play in. Or an interactive “Buddy Play” mode where players can pet, pose, feed, play, and take pictures of Buddy to send to friends. We’ve got plenty of ideas to make this game unforgettable!
Stay tuned for more video updates featuring the Buddy's character design, and a more in-depth look at the ways we're trying to re-think the endless runner genre for a wider audience, with fresh mechanics and accessibility.
Thanks for watching,
The Buddy & Me Team
