„The Great Jitters: PUDDING PANIC“:  kunst-stoff‘s award-winning iPhone game now available for PC!

BERLIN --  August 11th, 2011.    The German Indie scene joins forces:  Indie developer kunst-stoff from Berlin releases the PC version of their successful iOS Action Puzzle Game on the new Indie gaming platform „Little Indie“.

In June 2011, the quirky action puzzle game about an anxious jelly in a haunted house was released for the iPhone/iPad/iPod touch on the App Store. The game won awards already: the international red dot design award and the Pocketgamer Gold Award. The game received excellent reviews and was on position 1 of the iPhone quality index as well as among the top iPhone games on metacritic.com.

In the PC-Version of „The Great Jitters: PUDDING PANIC”, players also test their courage in 48 suspenseful levels of the haunted house and dive into four “beautiful 3D worlds” (appgefahren.de). The player leads an anxious blob of pudding through a spooky haunted house. The pudding has to find the way to the exit and evade scary monsters waiting in the dark. The only chance of survival is to scare the monsters back before the pudding quivers, shivers and faints from fear: The player fights evil witches, scary skeletons and rusty knights with an arsenal of weapons and traps…

Variations in game play -- including puzzle-solving, playing against the clock, unraveling labyrinths and winning treacherous races -- promise to keep the game fresh and inspiring throughout the whole ride and for players of any level.

The ambitious kunst-stoff team currently develops the next games of the „The Great Jitters“ series. On the Gamescom in Cologne, we will provide an insight into the Racing Edition for iPhone/iPad and the diverting and competitive version for Facebook (Browser).

„It showed that with our jelly, we’ve obviously developed a great little character,“ says Patrick Rau, founder and creative director of kunst-stoff. „Our community loves J. Jitters, and thus he’ll star in a whole game series under the title ‘The Great Jitters’.  We are very pleased that we first present the PC version on a young German Indie platform like Little Indie.“

The PC game costs 6,95 € (9,90 $) on Little Indie. We will distribute Promo Codes for a price reduction of 30% among the Gamescom visitors. Watch out!
