Have you ever wanted to massage the devil?

Im the Interactive developer at animation studio Wonky Films, we have just completed our latest short film called "The Nether Regions"

The stop-motion film stars the one and only Brian Blessed as the voice of the devil and follows the Devil as he unwinds from the daily toils of Hell, in Sven's Massage Parlour.

The film is currently heading around the festival circuit but we have just released a companion app contains the films trailer, a copy of the best selling newspaper in the underworld "The Fiendish Times", and the addictive mini-game "Massaging the Ego" …

…Have you got what it takes to become a therapeutic touch practitioner? Well test your skills and see if you have the magic touch like The Devils favourite masseur Sven. Simple touch controls will enable you to please or suffer the wrath of the Devil in our addictive mini game. With multiple in-game achievements to be earned can you rub your way to the top of the leader board?

Over the coming months we will be adding behind the scenes content from the film to the app (storyboards/animatic/etc) and as soon as its finished the festival circuit we will be adding the full short film.

The app is free to download, but also has the option of in-app purchases to support our future short films

If your interested you can find the app at the following link:
