Alter Army has been receiving a lot of attention from international media.
It is not all the time that Indian Gaming industry receives attention from international media. In fact, it is quite rare. The last time it did receive some attention was when Unikrn and Richard Lewis covered ESFI’s Asian Games contract fiasco. But this time, it is a very positive coverage, and it is about the game, Alter Army.
First and foremost, have a look at the in game video below.
Impressive isn’t it? What is more impressive is that it is made by only two people, who are just 16 year old as of now. Developed by Vague Pixels studios, the game is made by Mridul Pancholi and Mridul Bansal. Pancholi handles art and programming and Bansal specialises in fundamental game design and marketing. The game will be releasing on August 6 on Steam, after barely making it through Steam Greenilght. “It is finally releasing after two and a half years of hardwork, coupled with stressful school time, parents expectations and a lot of ups and downs,” they say in their recent blog post.
Alter Army is a 2D action platformer about exploring a dying civilisation. The game will have four distinct playable characters and four unique biomes. The game also has a reward system.” Alter army rewards you for being more aggressive, the more your combo is, the faster you heal, the harder you attack and swiftly you move,” they say.
The game has received a lot of international coverage from websites like PCGamer and PCGameN and rightly so. The trailer and animation of the game look really impressive. And the fact that it was made by two 16 year olds from India makes it all the more amazing as well.
