My Life & Other Exploding Chickens Game


Can you beat my high score in the new Exploding Chickens game? I think not. I'm 'TOMW' on the leaderboard. You can play it right here or on the mobile or full-screen versions.

Gamifying Books

I've dreamed, for a long time, about gamifying my books. This is the first attempt – bringing My Life & Other Exploding Chickens to life! Tom Weekly's mad scramble to catch as many chickens as he can before they explode mirrors his crazy life in the book where he is attacked by killer clowns, evil dentists, giant headlice and ninja librarians. (You can read a free sample here.)

Feedback

I would love to hear any feedback. Just click Comments below and let me know what you like, what could be better and any tips for other Exploding Chicken catchers.

Game Credits

The game was devised and prototyped by Raph Atkins – super-talented 15-year-old game designer, and built by Ben Train from Mad Egg – the genius behind my Story Scrapbook transmedia brainstorming app. The music is by wunderkind Francis Atkins. The illustrations are by the mad but brilliant Gus Gordon.

Hi Tristan!
Could you please create a video answering questions or talking about Two Wolves? I have been looking through the internet for something like this, but all I have found are interviews about the My Life series. Thanks!

Tristan Bancks said...

Hey 'Anonymous'. I made this little video for some students for their book fair. It covers lots of key questions about TWO WOLVES / ON THE RUN. Take a look. Hope it helps you: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8ySFZJ6vMzMVDM2OGZNb1JfMUE/view?usp=sharing

Hey Tristan! You visited my school today.
I'm gonna work at this until I can beat JB88
But for now, I'll keep writing my book.
What's pretty cool is that someone in Year 8 at our school got published.

From William

Tristan Bancks said...

That's great, William. I liked my day at Assisi. Hope you get into the leaderboard! Tristan

Bianca Fisher said...

Hi Tristan Bancks, you visited my school Assisi Catholic College on Friday and I hope you remember a girl from year 4 named Bianca Fisher. I beat AMY9's score like you asked us to try and do. I am 8th on the leaderboard and my name is AAAA because it asked me to put in a name but I didnt realise so I pressed place score and now I'm AAAA on the leaderboard. If there is a way to change my name please tell me as soon as you can. P.S. I love the exploding chickens game.

From Bianca Fisher

Tristan Bancks said...

Hey Bianca. Amazing. Well done. That AMY9 is good but you managed to nab one of her top scores. Sadly, you can't rewrite the name. Good luck climbing further up the leaderboard! Tristan
