Description

Watchout! is a VR mobile game inspired by the ‘Lemmings’ video game series and freely adapted from the stop-motion film “My Life as a Zucchini”. Put in the middle of a production set, the player has to manage a group of young puppets eager to mess around with his nerves. Your objective is to make sure the set stays in one piece before the animators come back from their pause break.

History

Watchout! uses the same puppet and prop designs seen in the film “My Life as a Zucchini” from Claude Barras, recreated and animated in 3D. Instead of telling the story told in the movie, the game puts the players behind the scenes, at the center of the production set.

Features

  • Become a part of the set from the movie “My Life as a Zucchini”.
  • Interact with funny animated characters with a life of their own.
  • Learn how to prevent each puppet’s nonsense to improve and beat your score.

App

The app is currently only available for Android and iOS in Europe.
