A Flash Game Graduation Project that Turns into a Masterpiece

The game was first developed by Maso during his Master's studies. Maso only finished the prototype at that time. However, the prototype drew a lot of attention online. Game development is arduous, it requires a vast amount of time, patience, and originality. A few years after the prototype launched, Maso met another core developer PP as his co-worker in the office.

Through many ups and downs during game development, they had received the assistance from National Taiwan University of Science and Technology to make the game possible. Not only that, the game aimed at the international market when it first launched. After teaming up with the Taiwan-based publisher Neon Doctrine, Creative Games & Computer Graphics Corporation launched the game on Steam with overwhelmingly positive reviews and many languages supported, including Japanese, Russian, German, and more.
