“We will definitely look at getting the game onto Linux. We didn’t want to commit to it from the get-go, but we’ve received some interest so will highly consider it.”
So we reached out to Queen Bee Games regarding Linux support. Where we also got the low-down about the game engine being used. The studio is switching, “using Gamemaker as it’s much more 2D friendly for our development team.” Why? Well the team were running into, “some graphical issues with Unity.”
Aartist Jesse Jacobs, and musician James Kirkpatrick (Thesis Sahib). Both who are excited to announce their partnership on the production of Spinch. Since this reflects the gameplay itself. Which is a fast running, sensory experience. Also combinings the tradition of artistic indie games with the spirit of indie comics.
