  • 28 Achievements

Game History

In July 2013 we were approached by  Indie Statik to create a game exclusively for their Kickstarter Game Pack. We like making games, and we like Indie Statik, so we said yes! The game was ready in October 2013 and was released to the backers in January 2014.

Since then, we've made a few improvements and adjustments to the game to make it TV-ready, and now we're unleashing it on OUYA. Are you ready?
