Blitz 1UP signs Spyn Doctor Games’ indie puzzler Your Doodles Are Bugged!

03 AUG 2010 LEAMINGTON SPA, UK Blitz 1UP, an initiative from Blitz Games Studios, has announced the signing of Your Doodles Are Bugged! and its upcoming PC release. Previously released in February this year on Xbox Live Indie Games, Your Doodles are Bugged! is being brought to life for the PC with a host of new features. Other possible platforms for release are also being looked in to.

Your Doodles Are Bugged! is a game with a lovingly hand-doodled art style and unique gameplay. Follow the story of Doodleus, the Master Doodler, who has accidentally hexed his pet bugs into his doodles during a magic explosion in his studio. Your job is to grab the magic pen and draw new lines into the doodle, changing the layout, building roads, bridges and stairs that allow the squeaky-voiced bugs to reach the honey pot and their route to freedom.

Find out if you’ve got what it takes to become a master doodler with the following features:

    <*>The Doodle Studio allows you to create your own doodles, play through them and share with your friends <*>Improved controls for the PC version with full mouse play support <*>Four completely new levels <*>Record lists, including five new music tracks <*>Unlockable free-play arena <*>Unlockable bonus doodles

New additional features TBA for other platforms– stay tuned!

Chris Swan, Blitz 1UP’s Business Development Director, says:“We are extremely excited to be working with Spyn Doctor to help bring the expanded version of their fantastic game Your Doodles Are Bugged! to PC and other platforms later this year.”

Adds Spyn Doctor Games’ Johannes Hubert: "I am very happy that I can finally introduce my little crawling, jumping and squeaking bugs to the wide world of PC players out there. It has been really difficult to keep them bottled up in the Xbox all this time! The partnership with Blitz 1UP allows me to do this while staying focused on the actual game development and still remaining an independent game developer."
