Papadar is the handle of Aladar Apponyi, a solo developer based in Melbourne Australia.
Aladar has a background as a 3D environment artist & animator, working at Team Bondi for 4 years building the sprawling city of LA Noire. After a few years of contract work on mobile titles, and a failed team project he realised that in order to create his own game he would need to learn to program. Eatvolve was originally conceived during the 2012 Global Game Jam, with the theme 'Ouroboros'. With the somewhat naive idea this would be an easy first project to program, Aladar began to study. He chose Gamemaker Studio due to its reputation for being easy to learn, and the large user base. Eatvolve has grown in complexity in step with Aladars growing skill in programming, and encouragement from testers and other developers.Eatvolve
Eatvolve is intended to delight and surprise its players, rewarding experimentation & exploration. The main design influence has been Spelunky, while aiming to bring a simpler but still interesting take on this player loop of growth & loss to touchscreen phones. Eatvolve presents itself as a simple retro platformer, though playing quickly reveals the title mechanic, evolution by eating other creatures. The player will discover that each different creature they see changes their body and abilities in unique ways. A procedurally generated level and creature variety means each life is different. Curious players will discover the breeding mechanic, which affects the body of each subsequent life. Careful players will find their way to the top of a tree where something larger awaits.
