BeefJack devised and developed the concept of Hot Tub Heist to appeal to a core web gaming market. Its intricate pixel art style was designed to attract classic core gamers who love a challenge, and an irreverant sense of humour was instilled in the game to give it good viral potential around the web.
ActionScript 3 was chosen as the technology platform to provide an optimal web game experience.
The ensuing game was played more than a million times and won two awards including a Mochi Media award and FileDir’s ‘Reviewer’s Choice’ award for 2012.
