Run your horse with your derpy fingers!
Finger Derpy, Run With Your Fingers. Finger Derpy has been nominated for both Best Multiplayer Game and Guilty Pleasure in the 12th IMGA. To play this game, players steer based on tapping their left and right fingers to control the left and right hooves. So the horse goes all crazy if players are not careful and laughter ensues.
What makes your game unique?
Finger Derpy is unique in that you can play with 4-players all on one tablet and everyone is on the same level of ability because the game makes the whole group feel derpy and silly. It’s like drunken horse-racing or bumper-animals. All of this leads to laughs and lots of good times which is probably unique to our game as well 🙂
Honestly, the two-finger tapping method of controlling your speed *and* your direction is pretty original. It’s like a derpy version of “Track and Field” but for 4-players.
Why do you think you will win the Grand Prix this year?
All people, young and old, know about horse-racing, but it’s generally considered a bit of stuffy, up-tight sport. With Finger Derpy absolutely everyone can play the game together, and experience horse-racing with a new perspective. No one is put off by sci-fi themes or hard-core platforming. This game is very simple, but original, and it has the power to unify different generations together in play, which for me is the light we all head towards in game development.
