Description

Crazy Platez is a high-octane, Rochester-themed, casual arcade mobile game, inspired by games like Grand Theft Auto 1 and Crazy Taxi. Racing against the clock (or in this case, the car’s gas tank!), players must crash their way through narrow streets to pick up and deliver “platez” for ChowHub before they run out of time. Crazy Platez is inspired by our hometown, Rochester, NY, where the “Garbage Plate” is a local delicacy.

History

Aesthetician Labs began developing Crazy Platez in August of 2017, prototyping it for 48 hours for ROC Game Dev's Rochester-themed game jam. After showing at multiple games events and gaining a following in the local community, Crazy Platez went on to win first place in the student category of the New York State Game Dev Challenge in April of 2018. The team released Crazy Platez for Android and iOS in December of 2018, and has updated it since, as well as launched it on web platform Poki. Since, the team has focussed on bite-sized juicy games for web and mobile. Based in Rochester, New York, Aesthetician Labs is a games collective founded by Aidan Markham, Noah Ratcliff, and Sam Cammarata. Crazy Platez is Aesthetician's debut title.
