Steel Penny Game's Puzzling Paws
Last year, I worked freelance for Steel Penny Games and got to do a lot of character animation and art for their now released game Puzzling Paws. It is one of the best jobs I have ever got. I got so much creative freedom to do character designs, animations, and even a watercolor painting for their office space! They're a really great group of people to work with.
The game itself is awesome. Great brain exercise. When you solve a puzzle, you really get the feeling of being smart and clever. (some of the puzzles get REALLY hard.) When's the last time a game made you think? Problem solve? They don't make games like this anymore! The game is download-able for only 5 bucks. A real bargain. Please check it out! :) Another plus is the game is very casual, Pick it up, play a puzzle or two, and come back later. It doesn't have to eat up your time. OR, you can get addicted and play it for hours like I did.
PS. If you're playing the game, remember from the tutorial that the level wraps around itself, if you push a block off screen, it will come around the other side. Make sure you remember this! It's a key to solving a lot of the puzzles!!!
