Trials of the Gauntlet originated as a midterm project for the B.S. in Game Development at Full Sail University. We had 5 developers, 2 artists, 2 musicians and a creative writer working on this game for a total of 3 months. Our scope was huge, and our classes are accelerated, so the game is absolutely not bug free, but then again, look at the origin of the classic game Portal. Anyway, here's the short description of this metroidvania platformer:
In Trials of the Gauntlet, You wake up in the courtyard of a Steampunk mansion, your arm replaced with an electric grappling hook. You use your new arm to solve puzzles, traverse the mansion and fight your way to the top of the clock tower where you confront the mad scientist who did this to you. Along the way, you uncover the story as to what's really happening in this mysterious mansion.
The game takes an average of 1.5 hours to complete and will be released on Steam for $1.99 on March 16th. Thank you all for your continued support as we debut our first game even before graduation!
P.S. If you guys like the game please, please consider taking the time to write a review! It would really help us out! Thank you all so much! =D
