Vertical Slice Release

Hi, it's been a bit, we have been silent for a couple of weeks working hard on the release of our first public playable demo for The Sixth Sun!

For those who may not know us, we are the studio BottomText Productions, composed of the members Hugo Feliciano, Inês Barradas, Pedro Fernandes e Rafael Castro e Silva. The Sixth Sun is a project we've been developing for nearly a year, with the objective being the release of a vertical slice. It was also the first time most of us interacted with IndieDB, creating articles documenting the development of the project.

We want to thank you all for visiting our page and reading about our project, as it motivated our work. And we hope you enjoy The Sixth Sun's demo:

The build will still be susceptible to fixes and possible changes, and we will write here when they are done.
