Whoa, hey, stop the presses even though nobody reads newspapers or magazines or uses paper anymore! Adult Swim Digital, the publishing wing of Adult Swim, has just announced a much broader original content initiative that'll see the release of several App Store exclusive games in 2011 and 2012. In 2011 specifically, we'll see a total of five originals from Adult Swim. Its first original, Monsters Ate My Condo [$.99], is on the 'Store right now, actually.
We're pretty sure we don't need to remind you, but just in case you're not hip with Adult Swim, this is the publisher responsible for sharing Robot Unicorn Attack [$.99 / HD] and other delectables like the flash-tastic Cream Wolf, with the world.
Monsters Ate My Condo is a fast-flowing, almost Jenga-esque puzzle game developed by PikPok, the New Zealand-based studio who handles the Flick Kick franchise. In the stupidly vibrant Monsters, you match up colored floors in towering condos in order to feed monsters. If you suck, the tower falls.
One of the coolest things about it is its look, which riffs on Japanese anime, pop-culture, and monster flicks. You can grab the game right now because it's good, but just so you know, we'll have a proper review-y write-up shortly.
The second game in this initiative has been revealed, too. Adult Swim is getting together with the studio that brought us Wispin [$1.99 / HD], Grumpyface Studios, for Bring Me Sandwiches. Slated to hit a little later this month, this is another title revolving around feeding a monstrosity. Specifically, you’ll be tasked with making sandwiches out of whatever an alien wants, including people and junk.
Overall, we’re totally stoked about Adult Swim’s push for original content. As much as we’ve loved the flash game ports in the past, it’ll be refreshing to see the publisher’s creativity and moneybags dropped into games catered specifically for iOS. Adult Swim is stoked, too.
This afternoon you’re in for a treat if you’re a fan of our weekly podcast. Adult Swim producer and all-around awesome dude Chris Johnston joined Eli and I for a regular episode. At the top, we have a good discussion revolving around Monsters and this initiative. Also, we do the regular podcast thing and because we’re all so pro, it turned out pretty well.
