Over the course of the past year, students studying the Diploma in Game Development at Futureworks insitute of Media in Manchester, England, have attempted to create a workable 2D video game from the ground up. Combining innovative Design, in-house programming and striking visuals; Spin Doctor is the result. Spin Doctor is a puzzle/action based 2D Adventure game, set within a Victorian world with steampunk elements. Spind has been coded in C# and compiled in Microsofts XNA engine . Players will take control of Harland Shears, following him on an adventure through a hellish maze of steam-powered puzzles and obstacles in a quest for freedom. Users must work their way through a mix of thought provoking and physically exhausting puzzles designed to push the player and Harland to their limits; both physically and mentally.
