[prMac.com] Boston, Massachusetts – Three-time Emmy-nominated indie studio CloudKid has officially launched its first-ever original iOS game, Negative Nimbus. This beautiful touch-based iPad app – which won the award for best visuals and design at the Boston Festival of Indie Games – features a lovable-but-curmudgeonly raincloud who just can’t stop raining.
Players help guide Nimbus through the stunningly animated worlds of Sunnyland, raining on all the flowers and trying to keep everyone else dry. The simple, intuitive tap-and-swipe gameplay is designed for gamers of all ages to explore these immersive levels and avoid soaking its dozens of quirky characters.
Why this game is awesome:
* 3 gorgeous worlds to unlock (with 3 more to come!)
* Tons of challenging levels
* Simple and intuitive tap-and-swipe gameplay
* Unlockable collections, including comics and wearable hats for Nimbus
* Unique achievements that keep gameplay fresh and entertaining
* Dozens of animated characters
* Wonderfully original score
* Optimized for Retina display
