Small game, big challenger

This game project was chosen by team because it challenged everyone in the team to do something different and it was quite manageable by it’s work load. Many good ideas had to be cut from the project due to lack of time to do them. So much more could have been done for this kind of game. The game would need more polishing and content before it could be on markets. But it’s concept is totally playable right now on it’s current state.

We hope that we gave something new for this +30 year old game genre with this game.  🙂
