Nov 15, 2016 - Mr. Fletcher
Today I was introduced to Mr. CT Fletcher's motivational discussion on you tube. I can't help
but be inspired by his incredible achivements and ensuing struggle. Most problems seem quite
surmountable in that context. So I'm working on the first story area in the game we call Ju's Cantina
I don't want to share any screen shots just yet, but its looking neat and will tie into the endless mode
Nov 12, 2016 - one week later
We have been on steam greenlight about a week, our page has kind of run out of steam... :(
Now my mind is turning to advertising, on a budget. Not really sure what my options are, PR and interpersonal type stuff has never really been my strong suit.
Trying to keep a positive outlook, and just keep putting time into development.
Nov 7, 2016 - on steam
ok, now we'er on steam, what now? ;)

Nov 6, 2016 - story script
a quick script covering the characters 3rd day in Firetrap: Story Snipit
Oct 24, 2016 - Hello world
Apr 4, 2004 - 9:27 pm It was his first planned hack against the organization in years. This time, Lou came prepared; the hardware, the proxies, and his hacker assistant Maria, no detail was overlooked. Still, there was one countermeasure unaccounted for, something he had no proof of, but there were stories, very old stories. Lou chased the uncertainties from his mind, it was going to take crackerjack timing. "Ok Maria, the shift change starts ... NOW!".
Apr 4, 2016 - Game Premise
Firetrap - An action filled top down twin stick shooter. Blast your way through 26 hostile areas covering 5 dangerous biomes, each with their own unique attributes and challenges. Collect loot in the form of "Engines" which give and modify abilities, stats, and play style. Combine these engines to play off of each other to become game breaking powerful. Never get stuck on a difficult level with the novel veteran system where persistence and completion-ism is rewarded.
Play as Maria, an ex-con and hacker who is trapped in another dimension and now must escape.
inspired by Gauntlet and the Chaos Engine
