Calling all gamers! Independent game company Cold Dish, creator of the innovative, addictive new touch-screen game Rubber Bandito, is in the home “stretch” of their Kickstarter fundraising campaign (ends this Friday, Oct. 5) and needs your help to achieve its goal of bringing this exhilarating project to the masses. A successfully completed Kickstarter campaign will enable Cold Dish to ship Rubber Bandito at the highest quality, broadest scope possible and make it available to the public sooner.

With a collective experience of over a century building games for Pixar, Nickelodeon, Activision and more, the creators behind Cold Dish have set out to make a name for themselves in a highly competitive industry dominated by big corporations.
“We’ve beaten the odds,” says Neil Kaapuni, co-founder, Cold Dish. “What our team has accomplished, creating a game of this quality and magnitude without any venture capital and no publisher support, is incredible. Rubber Bandito is stunning, a real stand-out and we couldn’t be more proud.”
In Rubber Bandito, you embody a peace-loving Shaman living in harmony with your people in a bountiful habitat. After the Imperial Trade Syndicate – a collective of steampunk cyborgs – brutally takes over your village and begins stripping the land of its resources, you, an honorable pacifist, are forced to rebel.
Utilizing modern controls for a retro platformer, the touch-anywhere, slingshot mechanism makes use of touch-screen technology like never before. The unique aim-and-release system gives the player the precision, freedom and power to slide, jump, double-jump and wall-jump their way across an epic, five-world adventure. Complete control is at your fingertips, so be ready to leap, roll, slash and shred your way through a gauntlet of retro-inspired levels that will stretch your imagination beyond its limits!
Rubber Bandito will be available for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and Android by year’s end. For more information, visit www.rubberbandito.com
