OUT TODAY FOR iOS AND ANDROID!
Rock Paper Shotgun’s Pick of the Week!
An entirely different kind of basketball game.
A narrative-driven journey told in four quarters.
JULY 12, 2018 – Award-winning writer Jeremy Gable has blended the worlds of gaming and theatre by creating the video game adaptation of his play Watch Me Jump. A unique digital story about the triumphs and struggles of a WNBA all-star, the critically-acclaimed computer game was released today for iOS and Android.
Rock Paper Shotgun named Watch Me Jump their Pick of the Week, saying, “Swears and saints, that was a ride ... I don’t get anywhere close to finishing even the great interactive fiction I play/read for this. But I’d be damned if I was going to quit out of Watch Me Jump before it ended."
Watch Me Jump is a story of scandal and betrayal, played out in four quarters. The player takes the role of Audra Bee Mills, who is about to become the highest paid women’s basketball player in the world. But on the night before playoffs, a scandal threatens to overturn everything she has worked for. And Audra has to figure out how to get through the night without losing either her dignity or her career.
As the player moves through the game, various choices will influence Audra’s experience and personality. And with the decisions made, the player will help Audra determine what it truly means to be “the best”. Featuring completely original artwork and music, Watch Me Jump is a throwback to the games of the 8-bit era, combining the look and feel of old-school RPGs and text-based adventures with a unique and original 21st century story. And simple, easy-to-use touchscreen controls help move the player through the many twists of this intense and humorous journey.
