Long before mobile phones were automatically expected to double as gaming devices, even long before I started making games for mobile phones (which was 2001, in case you were wondering) there was one embedded mobile phone game that ruled supreme - Snake.
|Baby Snakes! Back it on Kickstarter!|
A couple of years ago I was at GDC Europe, and between attending talks, giving a talk and falling asleep while waiting for my boss, I met a guy called Eric Prince. Eric was working on an RPG at the time but he told me about a game of his called Baby Snakes, which was a massive re-imagining of Snake.
Then I was on Kickstarter, and what should I see there amongst the projects but Baby Snakes.
I've actually played a version of this game and will definitely be making a donation so I can get my mitts on the latest, most fancy razzle dazzle version. You should too.
