Description

Abstract Arena is a top-down action-shooter game set in a completely abstract context. Up to 6 different ships can clash in the Arena, taking advantage of all of the unique and balanced skills each of them owns. Fast, precise, powerful: the gameplay is easy to learn but hard to master, adaptable to many play styles thanks to the variety of situations the player is brought to encounter.

History

Abstract Arena was born when Alberto Muratore decided to take part to the 2016 edition of the annual game development competition organized by the forum GameMaker Italia. During the summer he kept working on it by adding features, fixing bugs and polishing imperfections, and teaming up with lots of people who did help him with aspects of the game he couldn't make by himself: such as music and sound effects, language translations or social media management. In September he founded team Credici to group him and his collaborators under the same name. "Credici" is an italian word with two meanings: "trust us" and "believe in what you do" - so it perfectly fits the situation because the people involved in the project are bound together just by the will of making something great that they could be proud of. Credici is more "amateur" than "real indie" - it has been really challenging to create a full game "out of nothing".
