Crazy Platez is a high-octane, Rochester-themed, casual arcade mobile game inspired by games like Grand Theft Auto 1 and Crazy Taxi, as well as our own city! Racing against the clock (or in this case, your car’s gas tank!), players must crash their way through narrow streets to pick up and deliver “platez” before they run out of time. Crazy Platez is inspired by our hometown of Rochester, NY, where the “Garbage Plate” is a local delicacy.
Based in Rochester, New York, Aesthetician Labs is a games collective founded by Aidan Markham, Noah Ratcliff, and Sam Cammarata. We began developing Crazy Platez in August of 2017, prototyping it in under 48 hours for a local Rochester-themed game jam. After showing at multiple games events, building on feedback, and gaining a following in the local community, Crazy Platez went on to win first place in the student category of the New York State Game Dev Challenge in April of 2018. Since then, the team has been accepted into an incubation program at the MAGIC Center at Rochester Institute of Technology, where we are currently working on Crazy Platez full-time. Crazy Platez is Aesthetician Labs’s debut title.
