    Hey guys -

    I'm back with my 4th game! Which is equally as dodgy as my other 3. In fact more so as you play an Onigiri called Motoki who needs to dodge to stay alive.

    It's a fun FREE casual* game with (only) skippable ads so why not give the pre-order link a tap if you like the trailer. KAIHI is out in 7 days.



    Dodge. Survive. Repeat.

    Thanks for reading and fire away with any questions, like why are you releasing the same week Apple Arcade comes out?

    James


    * I want to write "arcade" but Apple's lawyers won't let me describe it in that way.

    For KAIHI I hired a fantastic Dutch artist called Kay Lousberg who's vector art, bright colours and clean style caught my eye.
    I sketched out the enemies (eye, skull & jaws) loosely (yeah very loosely) to give him something to start from and reduce the amount of dev work from his side.

    The mouth/jaw enemy evolved and the skull became the Game Over graphic but the eye was perfect first time :)

    3 days to go!
