Yesterday, Simogo tweeted that something called The Sensational December Machine was “coming (very) soon.” Now, the developer behind a number of acclaimed iOS games including Kosmo Spin, Bumpy Road, and Beat Sneak Bandit has released that something, which turns out to be a desktop game.
The Sensational December Machine is presented by Simogo as its little holiday thank-you gift to its fans.
As it shares in a new blog post, Simogo did some looking back as the year drew to a close and found that its fans had always given “so much support and kindness.” In return, it spent three weeks to create something it could gift its fans.
The result: The Sensational December Machine, which, true to Simogo’s penchant for multimedia storytelling, is an interactive story told through an engaging mixture of art, text, and music:
A short interactive story about an inventor and her unusual new creation. It features hand-drawn art and text, and dynamic music (which evolves with the story) by Daniel Olsén. We hope you’ll snuggle up with this little seasonal, and very three-dimensional, tale in fullscreen mode. Perhaps with some good headphones, and a warm drink by your side.
