Threadbare Games creates an app to help fund the Immunity Project

Weekly Update 2/12/2014 The Immunity Project and Sparkart

What have we been doing the last month?!?

We have been working with another local company developing a fundraising app that will be used to help the Immunity Project. Now that the contracts have been signed we can share this exciting news with the world.

The Immunity Project is a non-profit initiative dedicated to developing an HIV vaccine. They hacked the HIV life cycle to develop a vaccine that gives normal people the same power as HIV controllers. With success in their clinical trials, they aim to give their vaccine away to the world for free. Most recently they have been accepted into elite accelerator program Y Combinator. You can read more about them here.

We are making a game for Android to be released in many countries across the world.


Jen did most of the art and, so far, the app looks sweet! There are gems and a dragon and an entire planet made out of coins. It seriously looks like your phone will explode from all the treasure inside it. Great work Jen!

With another company handling localization we are able to put our full focus into making a clean app that runs cleanly and is extremely intuitive to operate. So far it runs fairly well but we need other devices to test it on so if you have an old Android phone lying around please send it our way. The more we get, the more we can test, and the more stable the app will be. You can email us about phone donations at

We are extremely excited to be working for such an awesome cause and hope that you are as stoked as we are!

Weekly update 1/10/2014

Hey Everyone,

Welcome to the first update of the year. After a couple weeks off the Threadbare crew is back at it! Here is what we have planned for the upcoming months


One of the advantages of converting the game to Unity is that it is much easier to add 3D models and animation. With that in mind we have decided to swap out some of the assets for newer 3D models. So far we have found some amazing stuff we can easily use in the Unity asset store. If you are a dev check it out. It is awesome.

We played a ton of this over the break and we are really proud of how far it has come. We will be pitching it to publishers soon and can’t wait to hear what they think of it.

Secret Projects… all I can say is that we have some awesome stuff in the works for a local company!

Thanks for reading and we hope you all had a great holiday!
