One of the screenshots from the game.
Hey folks, today I’m bringing with you an update from the game Snap That!
In this blog I’ll be sharing with you the title screen and colour and name picking direct footage from the game.
Though at the end you can catch a glimpse of the first minigame. Although we already have as much as minigames coded, we can’t show you some right now. Some things have been changed though after this got released.
These are not the final designs and it might change so stay tune for that.
Thats about it for todays folks have a good one.

One of the game concepts
Behold a new game from Ratalaika. Hey everyone this is Chris and I am working with Ratalaika Games on this new game called Snap That!
This game is being developed only for HUUGEE Android and iOS tablets.
You notice how some of your friends or relatives on any social occasions play with their phones, sometimes ALONE. Sitting there, by themselves always on their phones and it really sucks that instead of enjoying the occasion, they’re with their phone playing, texting or social networking. They’re getting separated by phones. Well with this game, those people who’re always with their phones, alone, can join in, play with a tablet and at the same time enjoy the social occasion. This game is a party and a very social game. You need two or more people to play and it will not work if you’re alone. Don’t be forever alone like me, just kidding.
The picture you see at the top is one of the concepts from the game. Basically you play with your friend on both end of the screens and compete. This game involves quick finger snapping or swiping of simple yet fast minigames. The main goal of the game is to reach the last spot of the board. Who-ever reaches the last spot on the board first wins and there are variety of board games coming. More updates from this game is coming so stay tuned everyone.

Well, for this week Screenshot Saturday I uploaded the Merchant, it didn’t get to many views, like 35 or so. I think I’ll start making the Screenshot Saturday posts a little bit earlier… Maybe that way we can achieve more views . Who knows…
Anyway, here is the “famous” merchant:
I really like how he looks .
I’m coding the second boss of Pick a Pow! so its release date is getting closer !

WOOOOOHHH, I hope you all spend a great Halloween day ! I did .
For today’s Screenshot Saturday I don’t have too many things… I had a lot of work this week!
What I wanna show you today is the menu of the game . I know, I know… It’s not such a great deal like bosses or secret levels… BUT! You will use the menu to start the game so it should be well done . I’ve two versions the PC / OUYA version and the tablet version:
The tablet menu.
The PC / OUYA menu.
What do you think of them?? Do you like them?? The PC / OUYA menu has a block on the start due to the first time it opens you must complete the 1 minute tutorial the game has .
