A downloadable game

Hi there!

We're Pixel Flame Studios, a 6 person team of 2nd Year Students from The Academy of Interactive Entertainment in Melbourne.

Whimsical Wares is our final Major Project for our Advanced Diplomas. Our goal for the game is to learn the processes developing a game for mobile (specifically iOS & Android), and have a game we can include on our portfolios when applying for work within our local industry.

About Whimsical Wares

Whimsical Wares is a store simulation game for single player on Android & iOS. The aim of the game is to give the roaming Tax Collector his due, while maintaining a successful and thriving store. To do this, you have to ensure that your shelves are always stocked, lest you anger your customers. You collect stock for your store by sending adventurers out, who return with goods and produce you can sell.
