Indie Game Challenge Experience
It was a great experience for us! We really had a blast/sleep deprivation! Also, our dream of meeting Adam Sessler came true!
Just remember to have fun, and don’t expect to win anything — stay away from the slot machines!
The camaraderie with the other finalists. There was %100 less sabotage than expected! 🙂
We really enjoyed Cogs and Aaaaa! Both are quite challenging, but very rewarding.
We are really working hard on the game right now, trying to get it to Beta soon.
An old-school style Action-Platformer with one-hit kills and a limited number of lives to make it to the top of the Warlock’s Castle and save the Princess.
The Knight must rescue the Princess who has been kidnapped by the Warlock and imprisoned at the top of his Castle.
You must scale up the Castle by jumping, climbing and fighting through the Warlock’s Mechanical Army, to make it to the Top and save the Princess! And earn heaps of treasure!
We where kicking around different game ideas for awhile. When we heard about this contest (on X-Play!), we thought about what game idea could we get up and running quickly.
We really wanted to make a game that’s more old-school in design, I don’t think all the creative ideas from classics like Super Mario Bros. have been tapped yet, I would say the uniqueness of this game stems from the fact that you don’t see games like this a lot anymore.
Some mechanics in the game we were working on for other games and prototypes, but 3 months is about what it took to build the version we submitted to the contest.
Probably being a small team of 2 people. We had to make sure we didn’t get to ambitious, and keep things simple.
Each level is drawn on a single piece of paper, then scanned and colored in Photoshop.
We are definitely going for the lampooning of classic game themes — we don’t want the game to take itself too seriously — so the obvious title fits the straight-forward goal of the game.

Me and my brother have been playing and working on games for years.
The team is made up of me and my brother, we have been working on games for about four years.
Modern Warfare 2, Assassin’s Creed 2, Halo 3: ODST, and NOT Mass Effect 2 (sigh).
There are a few, but I won’t mention them by name.
Playing awesome Video Games, and going outdoors occasionally.
