Stupidfast - How Taylor Martinez Switched From College Football to App Development

Posted by Jennifer Allen on September 2nd, 2014

How do you make an Endless Running game more than just another Endless Running game? By adding real life prizes to it, of course! That’s the thinking behind StupidFast: a game designed for football enthusiasts, and the brainchild of former college football star and current NFL free agent, Taylor Martinez. It all came about due to his career path changing quite drastically and suddenly.

“This past season was my senior season. I tore a ligament in my foot and separated my shoulder - both in the first game. I ended up not finishing the season as Quarterback. After the season, I entered into the NFL draft. I did my pro day at Nebraska and waited for draft day," explained Martinez, "I ended up going to the Philadelphia Eagles. I went down there and they took a MRI and X-Ray on both [injuries]. They said that they weren't going to take me any more. My dream was crushed and I didn’t know what to do. I decided to make a football app, and this is what I came up with.“

“I [have] been building apps for four years now," he elaborated, "I love doing it and have a lot of passion doing it... Stupidfast is different than any other app because it allows users to earn rewards and prizes. This concept is the first of its kind and would allow users to compete and earn rewards.”

Taylor’s lined up some fairly big companies too, with the likes of Sol Republic, HobbyTown, Cutter Gloves, Shock Doctor Mouth Piece, and Black Fly sunglasses all currently on board. Martinez also explained how there will be different console games you can win along with other prizes, including a “GoPro Raffle for every time you share a Kamcord.”

Kamcord support should prove quite a hit with StupidFast too, given its fast-paced nature. Players tap as fast as they can to try to run away from the safety, as well as jump over pillars. A stiff arm can also be employed to break the pillars, ensuring there’s plenty to do.

Martinez explained that, “prizes will be won based on your daily high score, best high score, the achievements [via] Game Center, and playing the football game. Inside the game, if you land on a certain number, you will win that prize.”

Achievements are varied, with awards for getting tackled by the safety and knocking your helmet off, falling on your butt when you hit a pylon, falling on your face hitting a pylon, collecting stiff arms, and passing 50 and 150 points in game.

“Every time you break your daily high score you will have a chance to enter into a raffle," Martinez went on to explain, "Inside the main menu you can click Earn Rewards, and see what prizes you can win that day and what raffles you can enter into."

Thanks to Taylor Martinez for taking the time to answer our questions. StupidFast is set to be a freemium game with in-app purchases available for more stiff arms, lives, and ad-removal. It’s set for release September 7. We'll be sure to let you know when it's out.

Running was Forrest Gump's forte, so obviously an Endless Runner 20 years later makes sense, right?

Haunted House Re-Imagining Runs Onto the App Store Today

Posted by Ellis Spice on May 15th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Last night, Atari released a re-imagined version of Haunted House, turning the game into a free-to-play endless runner. Developed by Kung Fu Factory, who also developed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run, the game drops players into the shoes of a boy lost in a scary place. In order to help him on his way home through a creepy mansion and its graveyard, players will need to a clear a path for him as he runs, jumps and maneuvers around traps.

Fred Chesnais, Chief Executive Officer of Atari, had this to say of the re-imagining:

From enthusiasts of the original Haunted House to today’s on-the-go mobile gamers, players of all ages and generations are in for a completely new and fun gameplay experience. As we look to celebrate and refresh classic titles like Haunted House and RollerCoaster Tycoon, we will continue to extend fan-favorites to new PC, digital, social and mobile versions, as well as expand the Atari brand to online gambling and other gaming platforms.

Haunted House is available now and is free to play.
