Lublin, Poland– 23 February 2010– Games developer and publisher iFun4all is happy to finally announce (delayed) premiere of“Crap of Defense” on Apple store along with its shocking trailer.
Production team claims that the delay was not caused by them.“We’ve been told that the game have to be submitted to Apple in order to be published. What we weren’t told is that it has to be APPROVED after submission” explains Laszlo Kovács, Hungarian project manager of the game.
Fülöp Mészáros, second best Hungarian game designer (out of two) adds even more details about heroic struggle for game to be published:“As soon as we received the rejection from Apple we went to the nearest Internet café (which is located in Budapest, 100km from our village) and resubmitted the game. We were also wondering why the hell Apple wants us to upload the same binary again?”.
After learning that the game have to be corrected before resubmitted the team went on the third trip to connect to the Internet.“These trips cemented our friendship” comments Boris Czernienko, deaf music composer of the game.“We not only spend wonderful three weeks together traveling on an open horsewagon between our village and Budapest but I also discovered wonderfully cheap alcohol called Methanol” Boris continues his praises.“I can’t see why it is so rarely served in bars?” he wonders.“Well, after drinking whole bottle of methanol Boris went blind– it shall explain not seeing anything” Fülöp answers.“We tried to talk Boris out of drinking it but as always– he weren’t listening” Laszlo complains.“I will never hire deaf composer again, no matter how much he will pay us!” he promises.
Team spent three days trying to solve the error raised by Apple, wondering why Objective C adds a dot at the end of first line code. In the end they were able to solve the problem.“It turned out that we had just dirt on our monitor” Laszlo explains. According to the project manager computer and horsewagon renting along with a whole year of trailer production nearly doubled the budget of the game.
“Since we had no computers we had to do trailer manually– frame by frame” says Zhào Wáng, freelance artist from China.“To avoid sending every frame for approval I traveled on camel from China to Hungary” he adds. Using camels as a mean of transport may sound weird at first but Laszlo brings firm logic into this matter.“Cost efficiency” he comments.“Camels can go farthest on one refilling and they are easily obtainable at any local zoo” he ends. But that didn’t exhaust all the benefits apparently.“It was also time effective as I was able to paint while traveling during whole six months of journey” Zhào explains.
“I hope that everybody will enjoy this movie, which is already considered to be most successful movie ever produced in Hungary. Even if actual production was funded in Poland and done by Chinese artist on the back of the Egyptian camel in distant terrains of post USSR republics”
Crap of Defense is now available on the Apple Store.
