Since becoming full-time Mac game developers in April 2004, the game-creating team of brothers Aaron and Adam Fothergill has reached its first decade writing games for the Mac, Xbox 360 and iOS devices.
Initially partnering with New York publishers Freeverse, Strange Flavour Ltd’s first game was the Apple Design Award winning ToySight for the Mac. Following that were games on the XBox 360 and then on iOS, including the number one selling games, Flick Fishing and SlotZ Racer. 10 years later they are now self-publishing, with their latest game, Any Landing which has already had over a million downloads!
Strange Flavour have also introduced their fair In-App Payment system, called Play Nice, which allows games using IAP to keep track of a player’s spending and limit them to a fair and reasonable maximum spend, at which point the entire game is permanently unlocked.
"We've got a few things we want to do over the next decade. We want to release more Mac games again as well as new versions of a few favourites, but mostly we want to keep on writing fun games for everyone to enjoy playing. We wouldn’t have got this far without our fans and want to thank them all for their great support so far and come up with more games that’ll keep them playing.” Aaron Fothergill, CEO & Lead Coder, Strange Flavour Ltd.
To celebrate Strange Flavour’s birthday, Any Landing has a pair of very limited edition aircraft liveries that will only be available this week and can be unlocked with any in-game purchase of Wings (and of course are unlocked for any player who’s already bought Wings).

For the physicists…
Strange Flavour is named after a sub-atomic particle called a quark. Quarks come in various flavours, such as up,down and rather interestingly, ‘strange’. As has been pointed out to us by some of the physicists out there, there are more than the 4 original flavours of quark than we first believed (I did my physics a *long* time ago). They’re probably adding new flavours of them to compete with the new ones that the fizzy drinks companies are marketing.
