Title – Double Happy Vs The Infinite Sadness
Developer – Monkey Stack
Platform(s) – PC/iOS/Android
Genre – Point and Click Adventure
Mash up the point click adventure games of the 90’s with the retro gaming action of the 80’s; throw in some neo-pop, edgy cute rabbits together with a huge range of contemporary environment art and game design and you have Double Happy Vs. The Infinite Sadness.
Strong comic elements and epic themes create a humorous, quirky and energetic story driven experience. Players control the Double Happy Rabbits, solving puzzles and testing their reflexes as they travel through the Isles of the Ancients in an effort to vanquish The Infinite Sadness. Puzzles and action...Philosophy, physics and flatulence...what more could you want.
Touted as a game for artists by artists, you will find the artwork sometimes purposefully clashing but, at all times, beautiful and fascinating. Double Happy are endearing and draw you in with their indomitable optimism. You will protect them during their adventure and develop an emotional connection to their character.
I had a chat to Shane Bevin, co-founder of Monkey Stack, about the idea behind Double Happy and I can tell you, the story is far from cute and simple. There will be some mindboggling twists, but you may just have to wait until you play it to find out. You can expect puzzles, mini games, completely abstract gameplay, adding up to a game with its own self-contained universe.
Monkey Stack are developing quite a website to accompany their game. Stay up to date on Double Happy developments at www.doublehappyrabbits.com. If you are a budding game developer, you can register to their website for tutorials on game and character design. By entering their competitions, you may even be able to influence their game to come.
