    We're very excited about Pinchworm as it'll be our first platformer/puzzler. The overall gameplay idea is to reach the tallest peak in the level and become a butterfly.

    Environments will be roughly the scale of a bugs life and there will be loads of predators. Movement will be controlled by a pinching gesture and most every interactive element will be context sensitive and use the same gestures, for simplicity.

    Some features to look forward to are:
    Blowing into the device to introduce a gust of wind
    Slinging silk and accelerometer control to swing and wiggle
    Chewing to grow your worm
    Splitting in two to deal with some puzzles and reconnecting
    Finish with as many segments as you can
    Collect the butterflies in your trophy case
    There'll be a star rating system and other metrics to compete with on the leaderboard
    and more...

    I'll post more pics soon

    That sounds great and I just love to "reach the top and become a butterfly" part ;)

    There was some question on how to play Pinchworm. Here's an interaction mockup to explain the concept a bit more.

    Ooh! I'm liking it especially the graphics. Will this be available for Android? Or only IOS.

    Sorry I didn't mention that. The raffle will be for any paid game produced by Squishy Pixels, for life.
