Description

Karate Dino, first game by the small indie Studio Thinkmojo, is an 80’s inspired arcade video game where you, a Karateka, try to survive in a lost world fill with dinosaurs. React fast, stay focused, and you might become the most valorous Karateka the world has ever known. But be careful, one mistake, and the T-Rex, Triceratops, Velociraptor, Stegosaurus or the many other creatures from the past will provoke your downfall. A simple one-hand / one-touch game filled with retro 16-bit pixel art and smooth animations, perfect for a quick and exciting game session.

History

Thinkmojo is a video animation studio co-founded in 2011 by two brothers Sebastien and Yann Lhomme. In 2014, they decided to leverage Thinkmojo’s animation skills to try to build mobile games with a focus on simple fun, arcade feel. With the help of Clovis Coulon, they worked on their first prototype: Karate Dino. The game was essentially an experiment to learn about the process and skills required to build a game with a focus on well crafted 2D animations. Developed throughout 2014 with GameMaker:Studio, the game was released for free on the appstore and Google Play on April 1st 2015.
