India-based indie game developer Ramat Gamat Studio just announced the release date for their 2D action puzzle game, titled Guide Me. The game focuses on three characters — Alpha, Beta and Gamma — who are lost in a world that is completely dark. The player’s role is to illuminate areas to help guide the three to safety.
The idea for the game came during BYOG-2014’s 48 hour competition. Back then it was a prototype with 4 levels, and a tedious UI. After the competition, the studio worked on the game for almost 2 months on a part-time basis, averaging about 10 hours a week. New levels were designed, mechanics were improved, the UI was reconstructed, and a new look was created. However, the game was still far from release; With a long way to go, the founding three members of Ramat Gamat Studio quit their full time jobs to fully pursue the development of Guide Me.
As a result of this decision, Guide Me will launch on Android devices on August 1, for free.
