Frutorious

Japanese cartridge art for Frutorious

You know what, we’d really like Frutorious on the Wii-U one day.  That’d be excellent.  Sometimes we play Frutorious on our iPads and bounce it to the telly via airplay so we know it’d work nicely.

Anyway, we’re bored waiting for Frutorious to appear on the AppStore so we made some cartridge art to imagine what it’d be like if it was a Japanese famicom game…

Yep, we’re bored!

Frutorious Press Release!

BOING! Coming September 2012… something refreshingly new on the AppStore. It’s a bit pinball, it’s a bit platformer, it’s a bit ropey! It’s the 100% hand-made arcade puzzle sling-shot platform game FRUTORIOUS!

Infinite State Games have taken some plasticine, some felt and a whole lot of soul and have fashioned together a brand new game to download on the AppStore for iPhone and iPod touch.

An evil skull called Pedro has turned all of Mr Fruts’s friends into FRUITS! Don’t worry though, because Mr Fruts and his best friend Frutorious F.I.G. is off to get them back.

Guide Mr Fruts back to Mrs Fruts using an intuitive slingshot control scheme while turning as many fruits back into fluffs as possible… but be quick! Pedro the skull is always waiting to get up in your grill. And that’s not all, there’s a whole heap of other baddies like owls, blockboys, keith the pumpkin and the FRUT-THIEF!

We think you’ll love our quick fire levels over a four hand-crafted seasons set to a dub and g-funk soundtrack, and the voice of Frutorious F.I.G. provided by UK Hip hop artist ‘ChetMega’.

It’s RECESSION FRIENDLY! On release the game will be free to download and packed to the brim of fun things to do without having to spend any money…

There’ll be 36 levels ranging from wonderfully simple and satisfying to exhilaratingly manic. You’ll also be able to use coins earned through play to buy helpful power ups or enjoy our super-hardcore 80’s arcade style ‘Frutorious Pro’ mode – a timed checkpoint reaching endless ping’em up!

There’s GameCenter leaderboards for Frutorious Pro and the main game, along with a stack of fun, daft and tricky achievements.

You’ll be able to expand on the generous free game later on by unlocking Frutorious Pro on Freeplay to enjoy any time you like, as well as be able to purchase two extra packs of 36 levels each which should satisfy even the most hard-core of Frutorious addicts .

You’ll even be able to purchase the FRUTORIOUS KEY which unlocks all the extra levels (giving you 108 unique levels) AND Frutorious Pro Freeplay for you to enjoy at a discounted price! AAAH YEEAAA!

Frutorious, Music

The Frutorious Official Soundtrack

Music is a very important part of the development process for us at Infinite State games. We always start our games at Infinite State Games by writing the theme tune.

It sounds like a curious place to start, but after we’ve thrown ideas around so that we have a nebulous concept of the game we want to make, we next go off and write the title screen music.

Herbert Spencer said ‘Music must take rank as the highest of fine arts – as the one which, more than any other, ministers to the human spirit’ – and we think that as much as concept art can spark the imagination into concepts and ideas, music is the best medium to get across an initial ‘feel’ for a game.

It’s not all that crazy, Spielberg always likes to start with a poster for his blockbuster movies. Whatever works for you is whatever’s best, and we find music is a great way to impart the proposed vibe of a game.

Today, we put the finishing touches on the Frutorious soundtrack. It’s a whimsical mixture of dub, g-funk, 8-bit cheese and folk music – and here it is presented in glorious stereophonic sound for your listening delectation!

Pop on your headphones or enjoy from any speaker to achieve a sense of mischief and merriment inspired by the music from Frutorious

Announcing the voice of Frutorious FIG – ChetMega!

We’re super excited at Infinite State Games today – Bristol rapper ChetMega has signed up with us to be the voice of Frutorious F.I.G.!

ChetMega – the voice of Frutorious F.I.G.

We’ll be in the studio recording some voice over with him in the coming weeks, and we can’t wait for everyone to hear his fresh hiphop voice gracing our game.

ChetMega is playing is Ibiza this year with DJ Alex Schmitz alongside a host of other music industry luminaries, and we’re very lucky indeed to have someone of his calibre helping us make the best game possible.
