Our Goal

We make the games that we want to make. We’re a collective free to incorporate anyone and anything into the sometimes messy (yet wonderful) process of game development. Above all though, everyone involved in the collective is pursuing game development because we want to make better games. That can mean a lot of things, but some adjectives we like to use are Fresh, Exciting, Experimental, Meaningful, Compelling & Fun.

Effing Hail

How does large hail form? Updrafts within thunderstorms push rain high into the cloud where very cold air freezes it. Once frozen it starts to fall but gets caught in another strong updraft where it gathers more moisture on its way back up making it larger. If the updrafts are strong enough they will continue this process for long periods of time allowing the hail to accumulate more moisture and more moisture. Updrafts can get so strong they even intrude into the stable stratosphere. When updrafts are this strong it becomes possible to suspend large hail for long periods of time further adding moisture to the hail, sometimes building it to incredible sizes.

Use your mouse to lay waste to the city below using the largest hail you can muster.
