Count Crunch’s Candy Curse is being coined as a “bite sized casual-core platformer, what the developers are defining as “a mobile experience that is more traditional, yet still approachable to more of a casual audience, in terms of style, length, and difficulty progression.”

Black Hive has been working overtime for the last few months after leaving their previous game and app development jobs behind to go back indie.

“We literally just recently quit our game industry jobs to go back indie.  With a two month dev cycle and two person team, we hit the ground running.”
