Our first game
Flump Studios is mainly a one man band, ran by me, Paul Marrable. I prefer to refer to Flump Studios as 'We' rather then 'Me' as I don't really believe any game is fully created by one person. Every one of my games has had someone else's hand in it's creation, whether it's been Dylan Barry from Railslave, working on the art and music of SKH Resurrection or Jason Heine of Heinehouse studios providing the awesome sound track to Horizon Shift, there's always been another creative force pushing the development along.
Sooo...I've making games since I was about 8, which is coming up 30 years now. I started with small, silly games on the Amstrad CPC 464. I started Flump Studios back in 2011 when it seemed like a good idea to start selling these small, silly games.
The first Flump Studios game released for public consumption was Retro Racer on the Windows Phone, followed quickly by the original Super KIller Hornet on Xbox Live Inides. The sales weren't great but the reviews were OK, more importantly I realised the Indie Dev community was awesome and full of awesome, supportive people. Even now the sales aren't great but the community is as awesome as ever, and as long as they're awesome I'll keep making games :)
Horizon Shift is one of the most brilliant single screen shmups ever created, that it’s heavily influenced by Taito contemporary classics like Space Invaders Extreme. But it also succeeds on putting a lot of masterful new design ideas on the table, trying to break the player’s preconceptions regarding the genre in disruptive and fully original ways.
Nice and simple SHMUP until MATHS. As you're playing you build up maths questions, answering them correctly increases your firepower. Nutty concept and it works great. Tickles the brain. 10/10 would shop again A++++
I found Hyper Bounce Blast graphically stunning, and it runs smoother than ever. Every new game from the Studios is yet another big step towards indie professionalism, and I'm really excited to see what is next to come out of their magic hat of high-quality games.
