FOURFIRE ANNOUNCES STICKY BEES: UNLEASHED KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN

Lawrence, Kan. – March 5th, 2013 – Fourfire, the studio started by industry veteran Matt Cox (Scribblenauts, Destroy All Humans) is giving the community the chance to support the new title  Sticky Bees: Unleashed for iOS and Android.

Out now in the April issue of Game Informer, the third largest magazine in the U.S., Sticky Bees and Cox’s journey into and out of the video game industry is told in a six-page feature.  To coincide with the story, Fourfire is raising money to resurrect acclaimed “slide-smash” gameplay with deeper content. The Kickstarter campaign is officially up and running with a goal of $29,000 to support a full-time development effort to get Sticky Bees: Unleashed in the public’s hands.

The original  Sticky Bees followed The King Bee as he “slide-smashed” through waves of bugs and eight gorgeous environments to eliminate the dastardly Hummingbird King.

In Sticky Bees: Unleashed, Fourfire promises over 10 times the content of the first game but now using the popular 'endless runner' format where all enemies and obstacles come from the right side of the screen while the level gets faster and faster the longer you last. The runner format combined with the unique slide-smash input will provide a truly original handheld experience.

The public has the opportunity to get rewards for different pledge levels. The rewards range from in-game credits, music, art books, a plush Sticky Bee toy, getting your likeness or ideas in the game, and custom commercial quality music videos!

"To make Sticky Bees all that it can be, we know we need a focused, full-time effort," says Cox. "With Unleashed, we hope to put the version we always wanted to play into the public’s hands."

The original  Sticky Bees is available in free versions and for purchase in the iTunes App Store for $0.99 on iPhone and iPod Touch devices and $1.99 for the HD iPad version.
