Crazy Platformer Sir! I’d Like To Report a Bug! Jumps Onto Google Play
The small 3 member indie developer Lord Puggington Games has just released their debut game Sir! I’d Like To Report A Bug! This game is a comical 2D platformer that has been influenced by retro games of the past. The game sports amazing pixel art visuals, a fantastic chip tune soundtrack, and a challenging level of difficulty akin to classic platformers.
A new prototype technology has just gone screwy and has caused bugs to escape out into the world. Luckily there is one man that can save the world from it’s demise, and his name is Reggie. Reggie is an average, couch potato QA Tester that has none of the attributes you’d expect to see in your average video game protaganist. You don’t have a blaster arm, super strength, or high tech armor, but somehow Reggie is still able to overcome a multitude of deadly obstacles that get in his way. Avoid killer cars, lava floors and even men in bodysuits! This certainly isn’t your average daily commute to the office.
Sir! I’d Like To Report A Bug! has implemented a unique form of monetization that the developers have dubbed “Post-Crowdfunding”. The game is a free download on Google Play but the developers have added an option where the gamer can donate to the developers if they so choose. If these accumulated donations hit a specified dollar amount the devs will release new content that will be made available to all players. Post-Crowdfunding is certainly an interesting concept and I look forward to seeing how it turns out for the developers. (Click HERE if you want to see what some possible content may be unlocked).
