Piece Corps, Created by Joe Doucet Studio, Promotes Diversity and Ignites Imagination
Without Boundaries by Letting Players Control the Game
London, UK. – December 19, 2012 – Piece Corps, a new physics-based mobile game for
casual gamers of all ages, is now available for free to download in the iTunes App Store and
from Google Play. Piece Corps unites its players and characters through unique abilities and
crafty problem solving skills to overcome challenging levels of schoolyard madness. Players can
also control their own game play by creating new levels and sharing with friends, Facebook and
the whole Piece Corps community.
The Piece Corps characters are a group of daring, young girls who protect the powerful “Book of
Dreams”. Unfortunately, the Evil Scientist has stolen it for his own wicked bidding! So it’s up to
the Piece Corps to band together using their unique abilities against enemies of all kinds to get
the book back safely and save the universe.
“Piece Corps is more than a physics-based mobile game. It empowers imagination and
creativity by supplying the tools for players to create their own levels to be shared within a
global Piece Corps community,” said Joe Doucet. “Also, by leveraging the unique abilities of
these diverse characters, we want to show the promise of uniting through differences, to work
together to achieve common goals.”
