In October 2012, the night our Art Director, Joe, finally made the move to Boston, our newly formed Tap Lab family sat around with other Boston startup folk to hack together something awesome – all in the name of Vampires.
It was the 2012 Vampire Hackathon, and we decided we’d spend one sleepless night breathing life into a ridiculous idea we couldn’t stop talking about: Yeti Hunter.
Maybe it was the hilarious Bigfoot calls, maybe it was our long-time love affair with the Sasquatch – whatever the reason, as we turned our attention to new projects after the launch of Tiny Tycoons in March 2013, we knew we had to make a game about hunting Sasquatch.
Amy quickly turned our half-baked daydreams into the real life North American Bigfoot, complete with goofy smile and boisterous personality, Yeti Hunter became Bigfoot Hunter, and Ranger Rosie was born. Ara solidified the defining characteristic of the game – the photo taking mechanic that makes the hunt feel so true to real life – and suddenly whole new worlds came alive with critters and Bigfeet, from the Forbidden Rainforest to Sasquatch Shores.
Almost a year later, our obsession with tracking down the legendary beast is official. Join the Hunt as we build the magical world of Bigfoot Hunter!
Thank you for all of your support in the past – you are our inspiration, our motivation, and the reason we love what we do! Now get ready for the adventure of a lifetime…
