The sale starts Monday, September 12th and runs through Sunday, September 18th.
For students attending game development and business entrepreneurship courses, Elusive Ninja features over 100 pages of behind-the-scenes documentation about the game's development, the business side of starting up a game studio, a Post-Mortem analysis, the original Game Design Document with commentary, and more.
"School has just begun again, and with everyone getting settled in and no immediate exams to worry about there's a lot of downtime for the first month of classes," reminisces Bulletproof Outlaws founder Jeff Hangartner. "I remember being bored silly and doodling in my notebooks, glancing up at the clock every 5 minutes mourning the recent loss of my summer freedom. We didn't have phones capable of playing games back then, but if we did you can bet I would've been fighting ninjas and flying spaceships instead of reading through dull course summary handouts. So with that torture in mind, I'm dropping Elusive Ninja's price by 50% for a week! I'd give it away for Free, but I need to make enough money to pay my rent since I didn't pay attention in school. See what I did there?"
