Description

Relic Hunters Zero is a FREE game about shooting evil space ducks in the face with tiny cute guns. It’s fast, it’s tactical, and feels delicious and smooth to play. The game releases on August 18th on Steam! You are also able to look at the source code and marvel at how this game can even run with such a tangled mess of curse words and “funny” function names. With the source code freely available we hope that people will get creative and keep this game alive, fun and free for years to come.

History

The Development

Game designer Mark Venturelli (Dungeonland, Chroma Squad) and artist Betu Souza (Knights of Pen and Paper, also Chroma Squad) are the dynamic duo behind this game, operating under Mark's “Rogue Snail” label. They’ve been making it in their spare time for the last months as a pure labor of love. They've worked together at Behold Studios in Brazil during Chroma Squad's development. The game also features the soundtrack of Swedish composer Goto80 and the sound design from Raphael Müller (who also did sound and music for Dungeonland and Chroma Squad).

The Publisher

Relic Hunters Zero is being published by Zueira Digital, a team composed by fellow game developers and focused on the publishing of great Brazilian games.
