I have being working in the AAA industry for tha last 3 years and the crunch is what is forcing me to find something else to do in life even if I love 3d. Some places may be more respectful with their employees but in my experience the crunch is even calculated in advance cause they know the workers will accept that. Some people is very passionate and don´t mind to do it and that is fine but a lot of people have families and they want to build a healthy environment with them or other goals outside the working ours. Not to mention non-payed overtime and other abuses I faced. Hope this industry fixs this problem.
Those tilesets are sexy. Seeing new tilesets is like getting introduced to a new lego set.
As it often happens with these kinds of games, Ancestor from SUPERMEGAQUEST is a very versatile title, that features elements from different genres. It’s a puzzle, an action and a runner. The coolest thing about the game is its unusual style, that pushes pixel art to a different level. The animations are very fluid and fast. The environments in the game are full of details and surprizes.
Venture across a dangerous landscape riddled with traps and enemies. Defeating foes and overcoming obstacles will earn you currency chips that you can spend on lavish cloaks and various orbs. As you travel further into the unknown, your surroundings scale in difficulty, demanding quick thinking and swift reflexes.
SUPERMEGAQUEST is actually very small studio, with two artists and two developers. The founders Jennifer and Daniel So are big fans of old school games like Zombies Ate My Neighbours, Chrono Trigger and modern hits like Mass Effect. They both worked as artists: Jennifer was a freelance illustrator and Daniel worked in TV. After a while they teamed up and started making games. There are two programmers in the company. One is Richard So – their dad and Garrett Shields – a seasoned developer from FridgeDoorGames
