Making of

This game was developed as part of a game jam at the School of Games in Cologne. Our group consists of one programmer, one artist and a person in charge of the game business. All we had were: 8 days, a randomly generated video game title and Pico-8. We now proudly present you our finished project and hope you enjoy it.
