Thomas Bedenk, Creative Director at Brightside Games explains: "It all started with the idea to make a 2D platformer that brings in some aspects of our own game Zeit by allowing a single player to coop play with his own prior plays. We also wanted to create a game where different indie characters aren't just a gimmick, but come together with an integrated gameplay experience."
When Brightside Games started asking other developers to include their characters in their game the responses were overwhelmingly positive. Their developer friends encouraged the team to keep working on their dream project. Amongst the first to support Team Indie with their game characters were Rami from Vlambeer and Jasper from Ronimo Games. From then it only got easier to get other developers involved.
* Mac OS X 10.6 or later
