Game Hungry Fans Help Make First Food Truck Game Possible

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Los Angeles, CAndash; September 18, 2013ndash; Massive Square, a digital company based in Santa Monica, just launched a new campaign on Kickstarter for Food Runner, its newest mobile project in early September ( http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/massivesquare/food-runner). Food Runner is a fast paced mobile game that operates with a low-poly isometric style of game play in a classical arcade format, to emphasize the hunger-rushed world of food trucks.

Massive Squarersquo;s creative team has been working on this project for over a year designing the game, building the architecture, and bringing the programming to a 50% completion. With the support from the fundraising community, the game is set to release November 2013 for iOS and Android operating systems. "I'm quite inspired by the response Food Runner has received, we'd love to surpass the original goal to push some exciting features the gaming community has been feeding us with.", said Aitor Zaldua, Founder of Massive Square.

Food Runner takes place in Gourmet City, where fast food trucks aggressively dominate the streets. What is the ultimate objective of each player? To become The Master Chef, a title not many first time players will be able to achieve right off the bat. To finish first, players have to defeat food truck foes in a timed match that ranks them by their ability to pick up corresponding foods, before their gas tank runs out. The finish line of hungry customers will only accept players that have picked up all of their ingredients. But thatrsquo;s granted they donrsquo;t get caught up in:

bull;?Giant oil spills that spin you out of control

bull;?Red lights that force you to halt

bull;?Crossing pedestrians that cause a swerving panic (Whorsquo;s got the right of way?)

bull;?And road blocks that wisely force you to choose your maneuvers

In addition to these features, Massive Square aims to create a function that will allow players to connect with friends and compete for the highest scores.

Food Runnerrsquo;s Kickstarter month long campaign runs until October 9 th.
