Calgary, AB (PRWEB) April 27, 2011
Staring out the window and daydreaming about that much needed vacation? Turn those dreams into reality with Jet Set Go (OK – play reality, but still). Jet Set Go is a whole new kind of family-friendly time management game for the Mac App Store created by the designer, programmer, and artist behind the #1 PC, Mac, and iPhone game Sally’s Spa. Download Jet Set Go from the App Store today: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/jet-set-go or the PC version at Big Fish Games
Developed by Ph03nix New Media, Jet Set Go is a new style of time management game for the casual player. In the game, players help April to put together dream vacation packages in the agency, fill up your charter flights, and travel with customers to a variety of exotic locations to ensure they experience the time of their lives. Players serve cheesecake in New York, take photographs at the Grand Canyon, dance the Congo on a cruise ship, and experience 15 exotic locales, from Paris to Hong Kong to Montreal.
“After being away from the casual scene for a few years, it was time to do some research to see how much things had changed in the traditional Time Management genre. We were honored to discover that many games had adopted the “Pop Up Micro Game” from the Sally's games! One thing that hadn't really changed was the age old mechanic of having to score X amount of points in X amount of time with a number of target, expert goals etc.” said Dan Kratt, lead designer.
“We really felt like it was time for this to evolve,” said Lead Programmer Craig Rushforth. “Over the years, we've seen countless videos of beta testers and how they react to a Time Management games and a lot of the time it isn't pretty. It's pretty intense - a massive barrier for entry and really not very casual.”
“Obviously Dan and Craig had a lot of success on their previous Time Management game. Sally’s was a fabulous franchise! Jet Set Go is the next evolution of that style – instead of the same old levels over and over again, there are 5 unique gameplay types. This gives players a lot more variety and keeps every minute in the game fresh,” said Jon Lam, founder and CEO of Ph03nix New Media “the other great thing is that you get to travel to all sorts of places around the world – Venice, the Carribbean, Tuscany, and it gives that sense of relaxation and escapism that players will love. Finally - and we got this directly from the fans - we have difficulty settings for kids, new players, and experienced time management pros! That means the whole family can enjoy this game.”
