In the summer of 2014, Donovan Romero-Brathwaite, age 9, had an idea for a game. His mom, also a game developer, grabbed her iPhone and recorded his pitch, posted it to Facebook, and Gunman Taco Truck was born, sort of. At the time, it was only a concept. However, other game developers asked when the game was going to be released and still others asked if they could help in some way. Many asked,”You’re going to make this game, right?” Thinking it would be a great lesson for an aspiring game developer, as well as a fun family project, we vowed to get this game made and launched. Donovan started work on the game’s design doc and his parents worked with him to help make his game a reality.
Created during a series of game jams with a team of six, Gunman is expected to release at the end of June 2015 for iOS, OSX and Windows.
Donovan designed his first game, All Time is Lost, in a sketchbook when he was 8 and started coding at 9. Gunman Taco Truck is his first digital game. 100% of the proceeds of Gunman Taco Truck go toward Donovan’s college education or a sequel, whichever he prefers.
Gunman Taco Truck is a labor of love created by Donovan’s family and close friends.
