Crawfish Games Releases First Two Games for Apple iOS

Crawfish Games, the Baton Rouge-based gaming studio, announced today the release of its first two games for Apple iOS: Cutsey and Creepsy.

“Cutesy: Quest of the Unicorn” tells the story of a Unicorn’s magical journey in search of love and acceptance. “Creepsy: Monsters Never Have Enough!” follows a monster who, thinking that he isn’t creepy enough, goes on an adventure to become even creepier. On the way, he meets a variety of other monsters who all help him down his path to accepting his own creepiness.

Each game features many levels of fun-filled puzzle adventures.  Users will also be able to play to win prizes, including stickers and medallions to decorate photos and share them with friends via email or Facebook. Both games are designed for players ages five and older, and can be played in story mode, which is timed, or puzzle mode.

Cutesy is now available for free download in the App store. Creepsy will be available on October 5. Subsequent releases on the Android Marketplace are planed, and online versions for Mac and PC are due for release soon.
