Press release:
SEATTLE, WA – January 11, 2021.
Wayward Distractions and The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild are today very excited and proud to announce that their the zero-g puzzle-platformer “Space Otter Charlie” is coming to PC via Steam in early 2021.

Wayward Distractions is made up of former Popcap Studios team members. Ed Allard, formerly the worldwide studio head at PopCap is the brain behind Space Otter Charlie. He’s working alongside Matt Holmberg, Isaac Aubrey, and Jeff Weinstein on Space Otter Charlie, in development with a release scheduled for early 2021.

The Space Otter Charlie development team is a group of familiar faces from the glory days of PopCap. Joining former global studio head of PopCap Ed Allard, we have Jeff Weinstein (AstroPop, Bookworm Adventures, Zuma’s Revenge) on code, Matt Holmberg (PvZ, Peggle 2, Feeding Frenzy, Magi Nation) on pixels, and Isaac Aubrey (Space Tyrant, Forza, Bejeweled Blitz, Motor City Online) on level design. It’s a tiny team working on something that’s otter this world!

Here’s what Studio Head Ed Allard of Wayward Distractions had to say about creating Space Otter Charlie:

“While I was playing around with zero-g prototypes, the fluid motion reminded me of Feeding Frenzy, which was the first game I created like a hundred years ago. I’m not the first person to realize this connection – NASA trains astronauts for spacewalks under water. I started thinking that sea creatures could probably adapt more quickly to the strangeness of Zero-G than humans could. Blend that realization with a zero-g game prototype and a long time love of sea otters, and you’ve got Space Otter Charlie.”
