Right Attitude

As in any profession, having the right kind of attitude is important, designing video games also require proper mindset.

We have finally started adding collectibles like coins, health, enemies, interactive objects, etc in the level.

The moving platform issues are now solved and they work perfectly. We even have a few surprises on the moving platforms.

All character animations are now approved and they look really cute and match well with the game. The AI algorithm is ready and now only has to be implemented in the game. We are still working on the interactive objects (there are tons of them in the game) and getting them ready to work seamlessly. The GUI and game concepts look promising and we are trying to make them stand out from any game you have previously seen.

I know a lot of you are waiting for our first playable demo and I really appreciate your support. We are working on the playable demo and can assure you it will be out soon.

First impression counts a lot and we know that. Our team is working hard to make sure that we can give you a game you would love to play for hours on end.

Thanks again,

Abhinav Chokhavatia
