Milky Tea is an award winning, independent creative production studio established in the UK in 2005. The studio was set up to bring the best in 3D, gaming, animation, design and digital talent together under one roof to produce breathtaking creative content.
The majority of the team have come from the world of high end AAA console game development and were involved in games such as Project Gotham Racing, Blur, Bang Bang Racing and Drive Club, so Milky Tea has always had game development at its core.
Over the past 8 years the studio has gone on to build a global client list that includes the likes of Sony, BBC, Channel 4, Kraft, Nestle, Unilver, Toyota, Bose to name but a few.
The business shot to fame in 2007 winning the opportunity to work with Lloyds TSB on the advertising campaign called “for the journey”. Here we developed those retro, recognisable, long nosed quirky characters that became one of the longest serving advertising campaigns in the UK. It was our job to produce breathtaking illustrations and interactive content.
Over the years we started to build up our games portfolio, mainly working on browser based games. One of which was for the BBC, called “The Well”, which went on to win two BAFTA awards and an EMMY award.
In 2012 after meeting Apple in California, we decided to re-focus the business and start developing our own games. In December 2012 we launched the first game on iOS and Android called Roller Rally, which went on to be nominated for a BIMA and DADI award.
Coffin Dodgers is the second of our very own projects to come out of the studio and includes the same vibrancy and attention to fun, story and detail that people have come to expect from the studio.The Game Story
Welcome to a suburban retirement village where all is not as it seems…
After settling down to recover from the responsibilities of working life, the residents of Sunny Pines have been idling away the days, life could not be more tranquil.
However, a creepy new resident, Mr Grim Reaper, looks set to turn retirement on its head. After years trawling the earth for souls to harvest, Mr Grim Reaper concludes Sunny Pines is where he’ll lay his hat, where he can harvest souls from the comfort of his rocking chair. However, seven of the sprightliest senior citizens have other ideas and set out to prove that life for Grim in Sunny Pines definitely won't be like shooting fish in a barrel.
The stately seven decide to strike a deal with the Grim Reaper; a mobility scooter racing championship to the death. If they can prove themselves to be fast and full of life, surviving and ultimately winning the championship, then he will allow them to live. However, too slow and they will be condemned to the retirement village in the sky.
What the Reaper doesn’t tell the folk of Sunny Pines is that once he takes your soul he can bring you back as one of his army of the living dead; mobility scooter racing zombies that are hell bent on making sure that nobody wins, by any means possible.Now Available on Steam
