Thanks, Allar! Good luck with your new project!
Who just carries around $250.000 worth of files on a portable hardrive without any backups.. The bug is stupid, but this guy is a moron.
Michael Allar here. Thanks a bunch for posting this, I really appreciate it. I'm also the guy who wrote that Confessions article that was posted here on 80.lvl as well.
Lithuanian developer JetCat, was one of the indie companies, showcasing their incredible work at the Lithuanian booth at Gamescom 2015. We were happy to learn that the developers behind a promising helicopter-based PvP game Heliborne, have secured €100,000.
The money was issued by Practica Capital. JetCat is the first developer in the country to obtain investment from a local fund. JetCat was actually founded by developers from Russia, Belarus and Ukraine.
Heliborne looks like a very interesting article with a lot of potential. It uses Unity to create big open-world maps with helicopters and a lot of areal fighting. The visuals look great. Developers want to use F2P model to make the most of their product. Hopefully additional funding will help them to get better results. The game will be released next year.
