Synther is an FPP simulation game with adventure-like, detective elements set in a futuristic, open world. The game has innovative, Commodore 64-like graphics, remindful of early 3D games and DOS applications.
Master deadly traps and savage hazards to slaughter your foes in turn-based tactical combat. Guile & Glory: Firstborn is the story of a world on the brink of ruin. A legion of nightmarish immortals sweeps across the land, slaughtering all who would oppose them. Blades shatter and arrows snap against the demonic flesh of the horde, and death follows in their wake. But as swords fail and kingdoms crumble, three heroes rise to challenge the darkness.
Verdun is the first multiplayer FPS set in a realistic World War One setting, the game which started the 1914-1918 WW1 Game series. The merciless trench warfare offers a unique battlefield experience, immersing you and your squad into intense battles of attack and defense. The game takes place on the western front between 1914 and 1918, in one of the bloodiest conflicts in world history. The developers were inspired by the infamous Battle of Verdun France in 1916. The game includes many historically accurate features such as realistic WW1 weaponry, authentic uniforms and maps based on the real battlefields of France and Belgium.
2014 marked the 25th anniversary of the Game Boy. With that in mind, I launched myself into the creation of a Platformer/RPG game, Tasukete Tako-San: Save me Mr Tako. Play as Mr Tako, a small octopus that can spit ink to turn the enemies into platforms, and travel through a vast world with the help of more than 50 different powers. 3 game modes : Story Mode, Multiplayer and Runner Mode.
Go up from the depths of the volcano, level after level, using fast and precise platformer mechanics and avoiding the dangers along the way such as: lava, fireballs, hot geysers and many more. But be careful not to end the oxygen, which is missing due to the eruption, that must be continually refilled by using the emergency tanks scattered throughout the levels. Also try to recover the collectibles to get a better score, especially the precious research documents.
