Shreveport's Moonbot Studios drops new game

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La. (KTBS) -

The creative minds at Moonbot Studios recently launched a new game app called Lollypop 3 and the Eggs of Doom.

It's a free game on Apple Products where you try to catch eggs before they hit the ground and break.

The idea for the game hatched from a process they think could help other companies be successful.

They call it game jams. Moonbot's game developers lock themselves up for a week at work and come up with new ideas. They leave their other work alone for this time so their focus is strictly on creating.

The team bounces the ideas off of each other, building on the best ones and cutting the not so great ones. The good ones are made into a rough prototype. If the prototype passes the test, then Moonbot goes into production mode.

Lollypop came out of a game jam last year. Developers said it took them about eight months to get it launched.

This process of game jams is common through out the gaming industry but could be helpful in others because it allows those participating to have a fresh look on their work.

Developers thought any industry that creates a product could use this method—chefs or even businesses who are trying to re-brand themselves.

Moonbot Studios was created by Shreveport's own William Joyce. It's a place where talented people create fun and entertainment on all different types of media platforms.
