Developer Notes
Dev Time:Nov 2012 - Dec 2012 (4 Weeks)
Made in four weeks as final project for a graphics course. The game came together quickly, allowing me to spend a lot of time polishing it up, adding particle effects, music, faux-3D sound effects, and even an additional game mode. I was encouraged to get this published but my coursework the following semester, along with some licensing issues, proved to be a blockade.
It's a simple game that proved addicting during its development. The death screen text, "You weren't ready" was originally placeholder, but my professor loved it so much that I left it in.
Everyone who tested the game during its development. I appreciated your encouragement.
