On the Run with Fogo Island Run
Past guest, Julie Lewis and her team at Sassy Tuna Studio have newly released a video game that brings the adventures of Fogo Island to your front door. Fogo Island Run requires players to navigate their way over 15 past ice pans, past seal and caribou, to the safety of Fogo Island. The game incorporates many aspects of Fogo Island culture, including a landing page with a traditional rug hooking by Islander Madonna Penton, and accordion theme music by Joe Emberley.
Upcoming, Lewis plans to share her gaming knowledge by teaching video game creation to kids on Fogo Island. Watch her site at sassytuna.com for further details.
Fogo Island Run is coming soon to the App Store, where it will be available to download for free. In the meantime, a preview of the game can be found here.
