Description

Twoplus Games is a South African multidisciplinary independent game studio - game art, board games, video games, VR, we dabble with the focus on making games for friends!

History

Before Twoplus

Steven Tu made bad games with Turbo Pascal and Klik n Play in high school. He continued with game-y banners with Flash in varsity and in an advertising career with some Loeries and D&AD Yellow Pencil. In 2012, Steven attended A MAZE Johannesburg, an independent game festival that originated in Germany. For the first time Steven was exposed to the indie game dev scene, as well as the then-fledgling local game developers association, MakeGamesSA. Steven promptly joined up, and made MakegamesSA a logo, attended all the meetups and learned how to make games for real.

Dead Run

Dead Run is an intense zombie runner game in which you have to REALLY QUICKLY kill zombies, but not humans. iOS with Android and Windows Phone coming. Release date: December 2014

Beat Attack

Ever played a good one-button versus match making rhythm puzzle game? Not until now you haven't! Playable alpha prototype.

Landshark Missile Attack

You're a rocket-propelled shark swimming on land firing homing missiles in bullet time. Boom. Playable alpha prototype. Made for Ludum Dare 29.

Bear Chuck

Bear Chuck is a chaotic mad versus mash-up of Angry Birds meets Bejeweled meets Super Meat Boy! Playable alpha prototype.

Cartel

Cartel is a card game that simulates 3D buildings with cards that casts you as criminal overlords battling one another in city streets. Print n Play prototype available.
