Mardi Brah showcases original art and music by native New Orleans artists in a fun iPhone game. Help us launch at the Super Bowl!
WHAT IS MARDI BRAH?
Mardi Brah is an iPhone game created as a collaboration between Lionel Milton & Flatstack.
They are creating a fun social game with real gameplay based on traditional New Orleans imagery that will be instantly recognizable. The game is entirely illustrated by hand using Lionel’s signature characters and streetscapes. Lionel created the characters and the virtual world in a style that is authentically New Orleans.
The concept of the Mardi Brah game is a street-style Punt, Pass & Kick competition. The creators chose this as the gameplay to tie into the Super Bowl in New Orleans. To play the game, you’ll select 1 of 4 characters and execute these skills (punting, passing & catching) to earn points and move to the next level. As you level up additional challenges will come into play.
Mardi Brah uses a lot of fun New Orleans imagery. “Passing” is done by shooting the “ball” out of a sousaphone. The “ball” actually is a coconut in the style of a Zulu mardi gras throw. “Catching” is much like catching a mardi gras throw, you reach up and catch the coconut. Throw me somethin’ mister!
