"The Gamer's Edge" is a podcast we started to help promote indie game development in and around Raleigh. We will be having guests on weekly to talk about what they are working on and how they got their start in the game industry.

Buckle Up Game Studios was founded by Kory Sherman and Chris Snyder in 2011. The two were classmates at Wake Tech Community College and were accepted in the accelerator program with Joystick Labs. Buckle Up Game Studios first release was "Flipped" a puzzle game for Android phones. Buckle Up Game Studios is currently making apps for different clients as well as working on cutting edge games for mobile devices as well as PC and Xbox Live Arcade.

Flipped is an exciting puzzle game that anyone can easily pickup and enjoy. Guide Crateos the crate through level after level of mind bending fun by tilting, turning, and flipping your device to alter gravity within the level. Avoid hazards such as TNT, buzz saws, and even black holes; all the while collecting gems and trying to reach the end. Earn bronze, silver, and gold medals for each level and try your hand at beating our own times on each level to achieve the coveted "Author Medal." Over 60 levels of enjoyment, complete with 3 distinct themes and plenty of unlockable "secret" levels. Whether you have a few hours, or just looking to spend a few minutes at the bus stop, Flipped can be picked up and played for any amount of time and for any type of player.
