Description

Don’t Give Up: A Cynical Tale is the sarcastic and dark comedic story of Tris, an anti-social game developer and his quest to confront his inner demons. Balance the hilariously dysfunctional tragedy that is your social life while facing off with the phantoms of your inner conscious and those that would claim it alongside action packed freestyle combat.

History

After a 3 year stint in QA, I found it really hard to progress through the corporate gaming world as a jack of trades. I eventually decided to take a stab in the indie world and spent the first 2 years creating some pretty unimpressive stuff. Now a bit more seasonsed I’m plunging all in on DON’T GIVE UP and believe it will be an incredibly classic and fresh experience. For now, as a 1 man studio my focus is creating great stories in a charming retro package that will make people laugh, reflect, and enjoy.

Features

  • An original cynical comedy about overcoming emotional destruction and self discovery
  • FRESH real time combat system that constantly switches between player and enemy advantage
  • A charming town FULL of stuff to explore like arcades, strip clubs, burger joints, and over hyped coffee chains
  • To combat the mental anguish of mid life and impending male pattern baldness
