  • Wacky Winter is a mobile game with a different approach to the "endless runner " genre of video games. Instead of measuring your score based on the distance you run, your score is determined by each elf you squish. Tap the screen to squish elves as you race across a winter wonderland, all the while dodging massive candy cane, Penguins with snowball cannons, Yetis and snow people. Moreover, the player has a wide and expanding selection of characters to play as. Play as Santa, a gladiator, a "Samurai-Dracula", a guitar-playing new-age CEO, and many other characters. 

Features of the game

  • Your score is easy to measure! Each elf you squish in a run earns you one point

  • A squished elf also gets you one gift, which you can save up to unlock new playable characters

  • Wacky Winter's selection of characters is ever-expanding

  • Leap over sleigh bombs, avoid springing candy-cane chimneys, survive charging reindeer. Wacky Winter will hone your dexterity and hand-eye coordination

  • The competition is on to become a top-ranking player on the leaderboard. Just squish as many elves as you can in a single run

the story behind the company

Motion Miracles was first conceived as a personal animation project by its founder and CEO, Anish Wijesinghe in 2012, when he was 15 years old. He built a rig which dominated the Minecraft animation community and  created tutorials for Youtube. His channel gathered over 40,000 subscribers and his video entitled Gladiator - Minecraft Fight Animation got over 3 million views back when Dubstep was still in. He became recognized in the community by his username "AnishWij". 

In 2017, Motion Miracles ventured into video game development and set its base in Colombo, Sri Lanka. We believe that games are a step beyond animation because a game has the potential to allow a player to actively create their own story instead of  passively following someone else's. Although a simple game,Wacky Winter is the first step of Motion Miracles' transition into video games. Upcoming projects include a game that builds community using cryptocurrency and a game designed to drive ecological solutions in the world. More information on that will be unveiled in the next few months.

Although Motion Miracles has shifted gears from animation tutorials to game development, it has not lost touch with its roots as a 13 year-old's educational Youtube channel. We still try hard to build a community around learning and growth. Our endeavors here are best seen on our Discord server where we let our community see how we work behind the scenes. As we scale, we plan on investing in creating more tutorials for our followers, focusing efforts on growing game development in Sri Lanka, and building crowd-sourced games with our community.
