Indie Showcase: Pastagames’ Rayman Jungle Run (iOS & Android)

March 7, 2013 — by Bart Eijk

Pastagames is a French game studio, founded in 2001 by Fabien Delpiano. Located in Paris, they have been releasing mostly mobile games like Burn it All – Journey to the Sun and Maestro! Jump in Music. Since Pastagames is a French studio, many of their stories start with people enjoying a meal. Rayman Jungle Run is no exception to this rule.

Rayman Jungle Run‘s story started when one day, Jordan Mechner was in Paris and he asked me if I was available for dinner with friends. Fortunately enough I was and it happened that one of his friends was Michel Ancel – Rayman’s dad. Michel happened to know two of our games (Maestro! Jump in Music and Pix’n Love Rush). He really enjoyed the games and was looking for a studio to make a demo of Rayman on iOS. The objective was simple: 60 fps rock-solid on recent devices, no virtual pad. Everything else was open for discussion, and Pastagames’ expertise in mobile gaming was more than welcome.
