Hallows Thieves are year old this Halloween

Time waits for no one, this Halloween our evil witch and her loyal ghosts turned year old. Seems like just yesterday when we released our iPad only Halloween game for kids, HallowsThieves. Just today I accidentally discovered that our little game was mentioned on iPad Kids website last month, thank you Jess for including our app in your list.

We all enjoyed working on this game and we hope folks who bought this game have enjoyed it too. Here is one behind the scene story about graphics in the game.

We always wanted simple graphics which are neither too polished nor unprofessional. Mrunal tried drawing few pictures, even Manas chimed in with his talents but we were not happy with results in general. Our graphics expert Georgia suggested a nice idea that Mrunal can draw outline on piece of paper and then she will color the same afterwards. The idea worked, we got graphics like we wanted. Ghost and witch outline was drawn on paper first by Mrunal then colored by Georgia using PaintShop Pro. I am attaching some sketches here, enjoy!

PS: Kids will be out today for trick and treat, 31’st October we had lots of rain.
