After the successful mobile games To-Fu and To-Fu 2, me and the team at HotGen started exploring what we wanted the 3rd game in the series to look like. For a short while the game was called, un-imaginably, To-Fu 3 . The concepts shown here were part of the package that enticed Amazon to acquire the To-Fu IP and release the 3rd game as To-Fu Fury and make it exclusive for their new smart phone the Amazon Fire Phone.
A few months later the game was released on iOS.
I enjoy working in the early stages of games like this. A pencil and some paper is all that is required to start getting the essence of the game percolating among the team.
