Hi everyone, I'd like to take a moment of your time to tell you about my partner and I's first game, Lunch War!

- Lunch War! is a game of apples. Green ones, red ones, yellow ones, you throw them all at the students invading your cafeteria.

- In it, you play as lunch lady Augusta Gudenov, who just wants to cook healthy food for the children of her school. However, a shipment of super-delicious fudgesicles has arrived and now the entire student body is at your door, eager for their fudgey goodness.

- You are armed with a basket of apples, a slushie machine(the screen-freezing power of the game), and a janitor that you can call in for backup. Facing off against an army of hungry nerds, bullies, jocks, and teachers, it’s up to you to keep them healthy and as far away as possible from those fudgesicles.

- With a retro art style, classic gameplay, and an incredible soundtrack by chiptune artist FantomenK, Lunch War! is a humorous take on the shoot ‘em up formula coined by arcade classics like Space Invaders, Galaga, and Centipede.

Lunch War! is out now on iOS, with an Android version to come soon.

Here's our launch trailer, if you're interested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98xIAEc-rDM

Thanks,

Matt & JP, The Automatic Gentlemen

The level and gameplay design remind me of Centipede. Nothing like throwing back to the classics!

Hey guys, while waiting on Stencyl bugs to get sorted out my partner and I have made some changes to Lunch War, from feedback we've gotten on it from people at PAX East and other conventions. So we made a video showcasing those. I'll also be updating the original posts' screenshots with what it looks like currently some time soon. Here's the video if anyone's interested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nc3ccyHNf_I
