New Brunette Games client Uken Games, in partnership with Mighty Kingdom, recently released Ava's Manor: A Solitaire Story, to great success in the app stores. Ava's Manor is a decorating game, but instead of a match-3 or collapse puzzle, it's powered by a TriPeaks solitaire game mechanic. A terrific cast of characters and an engaging storyline make this a winner and shows that there is more flexibility in the narrative puzzle genre than you might think. Brunette Games was brought in to consult on the storyline and characters as well as write narrative ad content and provide VO. We're all very proud of the game's performance already.
While Dexter, Amanda, and I handled the bulk of the consulting work, with Andy delivering on the VO, it's no coincidence that both title character Ava and BG founder Lisa Brunette are mystery novelists.
Here's the official app store description - be sure to check it out!
