I’ve been enjoying the coverage of Mount Your Friends so far, and was shocked when I saw heavy hitter youtuber pewdiepie play my game. That gave me warm fuzzies and so I want to share his video and some others I’ve found so far.
But before that, I want to share a short story about the game’s development. Before I released the game and made my GreenLight, Mount Your Friends was a 2 day jam game called “Over My Dead Bodies”. It was a competitive multiplayer game I had no intention of selling. Halfway through development I added the “feature” that everyone finds so amusing though a physics tool I had made to speed of my game development. Unforunately… there was a small bug. And by “bug”, I mean “OH GOD IT’S SPINNING UNCONTROLLABLY AT 100 MPH” to the point that it would drag the player’s body through its spinning. When that happened I just had a mental breakdown, spending the next 10 minutes laughing into my laptop as a larger and larger crowd of fellow game developers formed around me. It was at that point that I KNEW I had to release this game publicly. It has been a PR flurry today and I’m so happy about that.
Also some quick self pimping! Sorry!
