After the success of his initial venture into indie games as one of the artists behind the award-winning title 'Agent A: A Puzzle in Disguise', Jono Yuen embarked on a new adventure close to his heart - a game rooted in his childhood fascination with the vibrant skateboarding culture of the 80s and 90s.
As he delved deeper into the creative aspects of this project, he soon discovered the project was too much to tackle alone. Thankfully, luck was on his side as he serendipitously crossed paths with Danny Masalkovski, a seasoned UI and motion designer with invaluable experience in game development. Danny's addition to the team provided the missing pieces that would turn this concept into reality.
Together, they set about creating a game that blended the spirit and quirkiness of classic floppy disk and arcade games, with handcrafted artwork and contemporary gameplay mechanics. As a passion project, the duo tirelessly devoted every spare moment over the course of seven years to bringing this vision to life, persevering through the unpredictable challenges of life and work.
As the project grew in length the duo were joined by a third member in Jono's long time friend Mark White. Mark's experience in project management and business development on his own games Agent A, Down in Bermuda and Crash Course have helped the team navigate the trepidous final stages of the project to launch.
Players will soon be able to experience the results of their labour, a love letter to the games that shaped them as kids. Releasing early 2024.
