IGF 2008 Mobile Competition Entrant
Kodo [OpenGL ES]
Company: Jadestone Group AB (Stockholm, Stockholm Sweden)
Kodo is an action game where each player controls a small creature called a Kodo with a single button. Pressing the button makes the kodo move in the direction it is facing. If a Kodo is left standing still for a short while, it will automatically rotate to a new direction. This allows many players to play simultaneously on a single phone. The object of the game is to eat the other kodos before they eat you.
What is Kodo?
From the dictionary:
1: Kodo is one of the smallest and most hungry life forms that exist in the online world. The word has originated from the munching sound a Kodo makes when it swallows something. Kodos are mostly found in mobile phones. It is believed that Kodos have ancestors in ancient Japan, but was first found in Sweden.
2: Fake word intended to sound like Japanese.
