Button is, Kenyan Australian comedian and developer, Josh Makinda’s second iPhone application, available in the appstore from June 24th, for iPhone and iPod requiring iOS 3.1 or later.
“This immersive and addictive indie physics puzzler takes you into the delightful world of a button, some chalk and a load of strangely obstructive masking tape. Using your finger you must chalk up a guide for the button to travel along, ushering it to reach the goal of each level, though along the way be careful to gain enough momentum else failure will ensue. Marinate yourself in the user experience of Button and free your imagination to expand out far and wide, like peach coloured gum stretched between two school desks.
As you play feel free to think of nice things like: water ripples, cheesecake, fresh plums, half frozen cordial, juicy watermelons, a sideways cap upon an old man’s head, cellar doors, two otters arguing, aqua blue aura’s or the smooth forehead of a fish – of course you could simply just play thoughtlessly instead.”
No stranger to the big end of comedy, Makinda performed at Edinburgh’s premier Fringe comedy venue in 2003 at the tender age of 16, after being hand-picked by a prominent venue manager, and accelerating his career ever since.
Now Josh is taking on the world of iOS development and gaming. And is stoked to be bringing his second application to the iOS appstore as another creative outlet for his talents. With the intention of creating an immersive and engaging user experience for his customer’s Josh is thoroughly excited at the possibilities of being able to create interactive adventures for his nerdy Smartphone gaming clientele.
