Description

YCJY is an indie game studio based in Gothenburg, Sweden. in 2014 Christopher and Josef got together and made the game Keep Walking EP. We strive to create unique and interesting game experiences.

History

After Keep Walking EP

After making Keep Walking EP we wanted to try making something a bit bigger. The only initial idea was that it would be underwater and the player would be a submarine. Once we got the background water and some of the foliege into the game we thought this would be cool and expanded it even futher. Inspiration from Star Wars, Planet of the Apes, Super Metroid and Shadow of the Collosus defined the look, gameplay and story of the game. We incorporated current events and more modern design choices to keep the game from feeling done before. We noticed a lot of rogue-like random generated games were coming out so we decided to make a hyper designed game, where almost every tile has thought behind it.

Kickstarter

The community helped make this game much better by sucesfully funding the Kickstarter and getting it Greenlit on Steam. As our first commersial relese we are very proud to present The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human.
