Re: Crawl as a Spelunky-Like

It's looking more likely that I might make a project like this, after I finish Queen At Arms and Road Redemption. I just have to figure out if it could make enough money.

Maybe if I make something 3D.

Re: Crawl as a Spelunky-Like

I saw that, yeah. I wonder if the market is too small. I was running a Kickstarter for Queen at the same time as them. Trying to raise 50k in September is never a good idea for a game project.
