To quote: Hello PlayStation! My name's Matt
, I'm a Canadian indie game developer living in Vancouver. I live in a house full of indie developers that we like to call IndieHouse
I've spent the last year and a half of my life making a game called TowerFall Ascension
, and it's finally (almost) done. It's been a wonderful, terrifying, and rewarding process.
For the uninitiated, TowerFall is a local multiplayer combat game about using archery to destroy your friends. It's fast-paced, intense, and strategic, with nuanced controls, one-hit kills, and limited ammo. It's very simple to learn and almost anyone can play, but if you spend more time with it you'll find many layers of hidden depth waiting to be discovered.
From the moment I had four players jumping around on screen, I knew TowerFall was a game about bringing people together. From childhood all through high school and university, I had a lot of meaningful experiences with local multiplayer.
