I Spent Six Years Making Pinstripe All Alone, Now I’m Sharing it With You

Hi there! My name is Thomas Brush, and I’m the developer, artist, game designer, and musician for Pinstripe. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to launch my game about a minister in Hell on Xbox One… to say it’s been a long road getting here is kind of an understatement, but what a journey it’s been.

How We Made Little Triangle Unique and Fun Among Other 2D Action Games

Earlier this year we introduced the development story of Little Triangle and how we made the first Xbox Play Anywhere game from China. In this article, we’d like to talk more about how we made sure Little Triangle is unique and fun. We looked to meet modern players needs with proper difficulty management. With so many good games available nowadays, and busier lifestyles, many players have less time to spend on difficult hardcore games — but they want to experience all the good stuff in those games. Oftentimes, players just cannot finish a game. And it’s boring if you can…
