Siralim • Win a battle
I had hoped to play something with a bit more ‘substance’ on PC today, but the trade off was a whole heap of games that didn’t seem to have achievements versus not having a Mac version to play with (frankly, it’s in the 30s celsius today, I don’t really have the inclination to be stuffing around switching OS), and so this tidy little sub-100MB game seemed like a good little ‘filler’ to see me through.
If I’m perfectly honest – it’s little games like this which give me hope that one day I might be able to call myself a game developer. When I closed the game, it came up with an interesting studio name – Thylacine Studios – which, for the science-geeks among you, is the scientific name for the Tasmanian Tiger. I couldn’t see anything to indicate that the company was Australian in origin, indeed, the suffix of LLC at the end of the company name on its website doesn’t really give me much hope – but it made me patriotic for a whole minute-and-a-half that I otherwise would have been.
I’ll persevere with this a bit longer, now that I have the basics in terms of controls down, but I don’t think this will be an all-consuming hobby like other 8-bit style games, eg. Stardew Valley.
