DooWaru for iPhone and iPad: Former Disney Animators Launch Word Game App to Fund Animated Film(August 30, 2011)
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) August 30, 2011
Fu Manchu Media LLC, a new independent mobile development company, has released a whole new concept in word games using Unity. Eager to find creative ways to fund their animated short film Combover for Dinner the team created DooWaru, a fast-paced word search game with spinning letters, bombs and a relentless clock. The idea is simple: find as many words as you can in the ever moving letter blocks to score high and progress to increasingly more difficult levels.
Described by one of its creators as participating in a spelling bee while storming the beaches of Normandy, many players are already declaring DooWaru a breath of fresh air in the otherwise mind-numbing genre of word games.
DooWaru has already been well received by the mobile game community. Colette Bennett of Touch Arcade wrote, When I tell you that by the time you pass level ten you're going to have to be quick to spell anything longer than three or four letters, believe it. This is where the challenge and the fun come in. Think fast!
The idea to create DooWaru came when we needed to find new ways to fund our animated film Combover for Dinner. It is our first game and we are, I think rightly, proud of it, said David of Fu Manchu Media LLC.
Combover for Dinner is a new animated short film crewed by animators and artists that brought us such enduring films as Lilo and Stitch, Brother Bear, Mulan and Emperors New Groove. When completed, the short will be submitted to the Academy of Motion Pictures for possible Oscar consideration.
The film follows a funny little man named Harold Combs, who invites the girl of his dreams over for a romantic dinner in an effort to win her heart, without revealing his most terrible secret, his combover.
An animated short can be very costly to produce and submit to the Academy, added Dave. And now with the creation and success of DooWaru, whole new possiblities, never once thought of, have opened up to us to continue our artistic passions.
