Thruster, a division of Bottle Rocket, has recently released Pants! an epic mobile game about dressing naked dudes falling out of the sky before they hit the pavement.
The player must use three clotheslines to drag shirts, pants and socks under quickly dropping guys in their birthday suits (don’t worry, everything has been blurred for your protection) . Complete a full outfit, and he lives. Failing to get any piece of clothing results in death by pavement. Bonus points are awarded for creating outfits of all the same color.
Pants! gives a nod to old school games with its nostalgic 16-bit style. The game focuses on humor and quick pick-up-and-play sessions. Don’t be fooled by its simple premise however, it doesn’t take long for the game to ramp up and get very challenging for even for those with fast fingers.
“We set out to create something that would resonate with players looking for a quick fix of challenging entertainment. Pants! combines nostalgic retro graphics, really difficult gameplay plus lots of humor and pop culture to create the perfect pick up and play experience that will have people buzzing,” said Thruster’s GM Matt Johnson.
The team was used several famous quotes as true inspiration for creating this game:
“A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” – Winston Churchill
“If you make a fool of yourself, you can do it with dignity, without taking your pants down. And if you do take your pants down, you can still do it with dignity.” – William Shatner
“I did everything by the seat of my pants. That’s why I got hurt so much.” – Evel Knievel
Look for appearances of pop culture references and popular memes within the game.
