We’ve recently started development on our first independent game (see picture) and hoping to have a finished product by September this year.
What’s it about?
It’s a retro escapist game where you play a kidnapped magician that’s trying to evade his captors. The goal of the game is to survive until dawn and not get Dragged Away.
When is it coming out?
We’re currently shooting for a September 1st, 2013 release date to show it around at PAX West. It’s also Giannii’s birthday so it’s like a gift and accomplishment in one. However, the ultimate rule is when its awesome, it will be out.
What systems will the game be available on?
Initially Apple iOS as a universal app. That’s iPhone, iPod, iPad Mini and iPad 2/3/4.
When is the Beta? How do I get in?
Early July. However I’m still deciding how to choose applicants - but for now you can opt-in to the beta here.
What games influence you?
Damn good question. Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy 6, Game Dev Story, Jackal, Ultima, Psychonauts, and a lot of throw back shit. I try and balance instant gratification with unexpected surprises.
Do you need help on the project?
Right now - nope. We do anticipate the need for voice actors, and additional art asset help, but we will post on our twitter/facebook pages as we get closer to the finish line.
Feel free to leave a comment below if you have any questions about the game, us, etc.
