Your fate is sealed but how long can you survive? You are the captain of a stricken ship, no weapons, limited controls and heading to an asteroid belt. Like all good captains you are prepared to go down but not without a fight. In this 2D action survival game use your skills to dodge the asteroids and continue as long as you can.
Parachuting Frog was formed in 2012 in Sussex, England.
Talent has little to do with success according to research conducted by Dr. K. Anders Ericsson a theory we first came across through reading Outlier by Malcolm Gladwell. The theory being that elite performers engage in ‘deliberate practice’–an focused activity designed to improve target performance. This principal is behind the 10,000 hour theory.
We furthered our investigation into this by looking into other practitioners of this theory and came across thedanplan, amongst others, who also wanted to prove from novice golfer to PGA tour professional.
That got us thinking what could we apply? Our strengths are in problem solving, as a software developer and have a passion for video games. We therefore formulated this project to give ourselves a five year goal to achieve our dream of owning our own gaming studio, paying off our mortgage and funding private education for our children.
The coming hours, weeks, months and years will be documented as a means of diarising my activity and seeing if the 10,000 hour theory can be applied to such a concept. Also to help and hopefully inspire others to follow such a challenge.
We have a presskit for all our games and background to Parachuting Frog which can be found in our press site at http://press.parachutingfrog.com
