Over a year ago Malcolm and I founded Alpha Revolver Games, our intentions to become Indie Game Developers. Two days ago last year we decided to begin work on our first game. It was originally meant to be a six month project. However we ran into many issues, people left, we changed engine, we struggled with money and we ran into many other issues. I feel we have grown a lot. First off announcing on day 1 that we hope our project takes 6 months was just crazy, but that was our target. However like I keep saying it’s like many things, its uncertain. You never know what will happen and sometimes you don’t always find the most effective way to overcome them. Sometimes it is just circumstance and I guess we have all been strong and believed in what we are doing otherwise we would have given up a long time ago.
However things are looking up, we have since had two new members join us. Alex, which is our programmer based in Texas and Garry our Musician from Scotland. Both who have been amazing team members. These guys work really hard and have stuck with us and I feel I also speak for Malcolm when I say we really thank you guys. Even though they joined later in the project, these guys have made it their own and have just as much passion & drive in the project that Malcolm and I have.
Of course I really need to thank Malcolm. I don’t believe I could have designed or learned just as much as I have without him on the team. He’s kept me on the right track and has worked so hard. He taught me a lot of things and is not afraid of exploring options or learning new things. I really enjoy his artwork and I believe that when we come to release that other people will love it just as much as I do.
Whilst I am very proud of my team. I am proud of what I have achieved. I stuck at something and I still intend to.
Moving forward we still have lots to do before the game is ready. We do still have a target of 2014 and we believe that we will make it. We are all really proud of what we have done so far and we believe that we will have a really fun game play experience when it releases.
We still have a few people to thank in this milestone. We thank our partners, our family and friends. We also want to thank you for reading and being part of our first chapter of Indie Games Development. I hope we are all a part of many more good chapters to come.
Thank you everyone!
