9 Lives: Casey and Sphynx combines strategic deaths with humor and whimsy

InsideSocialGames had a chance to chat with Ric Williams, Co-Founder and President of Hungry Moose Games, a team comprised of ex-Bioware developers. Williams shed some light on the game’s design, and when users can expect the game to branch out to iOS.

Hungry Moose Games has launched its first app on Android, a side-scrolling platformer called 9 Lives: Casey and Sphynx, which combines puzzles and cooperative play into a whimsical new experience.

The game follows museum guard Casey and a temple cat named Sphynx through a gameplay setup that encourages dying in strategic ways to progress. 9 Lives features four large levels, along with a Jewel system for upgrades to each character’s abilities. Casey can be upgraded with crowbars and flares to reach otherwise inaccessible areas, for instance, while Sphynx can be upgraded to cling to ceilings and walls.

Fun, old school game and a great group in general. It's always nice to find developers that you feel good about supporting. I hope they do well.
