“Getting this game to play and look at this quality was a massive undertaking and I am proud of where it currently stands,” said solo developer Arty Ramazanov in a statement to Gematsu. “It is meant to be a challenging game filling the niche for people who enjoy retro-style action platformers, but modernized with a faster move-set. ”
