A small team made Fruit Ninja but the man universally recognised as the 'creator' of Fruit Ninja is Luke Muscat. He's a goddamn wizard. Many regard the guy as one of the best pure game designers in Australia and they're probably right.
His new game is about Milkshakes.
It's called Slide the Shakes and honestly, just from looking at it I feel like I get how much fun it's going to be.
Luke Muscat is now part of Prettygreat, a new studio made up of former Halfbrick employees. Last year they released Land Sliders which was good. This looks a little more up my alley though. It's sort of like Desert Golfing mixed with sliding and milkshakes. I'm seriously down with that.
Took everything we had to not name it Slidey Shakes. https://t.co/7iNBX8XYJn

Also: major props for not calling it Slidey Shakes. That must have taken a serious amount of mental willpower.
Slide the Shakes comes out on iOS on February 25. I've got an early copy and I'm downloading as we speak. Will report back.
