The Story behind the Game:
I had initially started this as a part-time initiative to expand some of my AI experiments for which I was already using mini-games as a test bed. While we worked towards the completion of our first experimental game, I realized that it would take more research and development time for us to create games which could be marketed and gain a sizable audience and I’ve now taken on this roll full-time.
Being a long time fan of racing games, I could see the edge that a more faithful physics simulation could bring to a game and more than compensate for a lack of elaborate controls, fancy weapons and over-the-top, gravity defying stunts. The idea for Mean Machines was conceived with the broad goal of offering a grungy, action-racing game that will hopefully be successful in bringing the thrills of bigger titles from previous generations’ platforms by adapting the concept for the modern mobile systems– compact, simple and easy to pick up and play while relying on a carefully balanced physics system to keep it challenging and fun at the same time. We have focused particularly hard on the art direction of this game and were quite pleased to have received appreciation from Chillingo and other respectable developers and publishers for the art style- we drew inspiration from bumper cars, kart racing, RC racing, demolition derby etc. to create a unique vibe and atmosphere for the game.
