October...Day Three...

Greetings and salutations,

Each year many of my friends dust off their copy of my band Rain Station's DARK RIDE CD. If you've been visiting my blog for any length of time you've read about the making of the CD, heard the songs, maybe even bought a copy or downloaded a song or 13. Over the years my bandmate and great friend JE Moores has made awesome videos for some of the songs on the disc and last year he made a GAME you can download and play on your mobile device!

From Jay's website (here)...

"Halloween is my favorite holiday. I love everything about it. Dressing up, fun spooky images, the leaves all turn beautiful colors, and lots and lots of candy! The Broom Hopping game is a celebration of classic Halloween paper cut out art. Remember your teacher giving you orange and black paper, and you had to cut out silhouettes of Jack-O-Lanterns, bats, and cats, and glue them all together into high contrast Halloween cards and decorations? You don’t? Well, that’s okay. You can play my new game anyway.

Mark Harvey and I are the band, Rain Station, and we recorded a bunch of Halloween songs. Our song, Broom Hopping inspired this game. We imagined a black cat hopping from broom stick to broom stick as witches fly to a Halloween party. I had animated a bunch of these songs for JackOLantern.ORG – but I thought Broom Hopping had to be a game, not just a cartoon.

So here it is. Broom Hopping is a classic Halloween video game perfect for all ages. Game play is simple. You just tap left or right and do your best to help the kitty hop from broom stick to broom stick. You can even hop on the bats to keep you going. If you need a little extra juice, the Jack-O-Lanterns give you a power up so you can survive the owls and spiders. Play against your friends to see who can hop the most broom sticks. If you love cats or Halloween, (or cats and Halloween), this game is for you."

Download the game...have a listen to the song...get into the Halloween Spirit!

Happy Haunting!
