    We have a new game coming out soon titled "Don't Be A Fatty!"

    It's a $0.99 game that has a fairly simple concept. Fatty, the main character, needs to control his weight. As food drops from the sky, catch it in his mouth. His weight will go up or down based on the type of food he eats (pizza vs. carrots, for example). As you get more points and your level goes higher, the food falls faster and gets worse for Fatty to eat. Later in the game, a random treadmill will drop and if you catch it, you can drop a quick 20 pounds. If Fatty goes below 100 or above 300 in weight, you loose. There are sound effects and nice background music. Updates will come out regularly based on user feedback.

    It's in review now with Apple and will be released in about a week. Watch for it on the App Store. I'll be posting some screenshots and promo codes for this app shortly.

    EDIT: Here's a YouTube video for a preview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2pkW5Ddr-0

    I'll be posting a YouTube video in the next few days to show some quick gameplay (maybe the first two levels or so).

    Promo codes will be coming on the day of release. They will be very limited as most will go to legitimate review sites. I may have a few left over for the members here and I will post details then.

    Just keep an eye out on this post over the next week as details come out.

    It's actually much easier to die from getting fat than die from getting skinny in this game.

    So you can die either way? Interesting twist.

    Edit: Maybe I should read the entire post next time :p

    Yep, the point of the game is to maintain a healthy weight. It gets extremely hard as the levels get higher.

    Is there a way to embed a YouTube video within a forum post? Here's the link to the video:

    Expect some major updates to this game after it's released. You'll be able to find the game by searching "Ethan Productions" or "Fatty" on the App Store.
