Game Overview

Lab Cat Games began with a long walk off a short pier. Quitting his management job to pursue a lifelong dream of making games, James took the plunge into gamedev head first. Inspired by childhood favorites such as Zombies Ate My Neighbors, Smash TV and The Chaos Engine, he feverishly learned GameMaker Language and started the development of Kite. Within weeks an early prototype came to be and friends were encouraged to give it a shot. It was a top down run and gun with loads of mechanics. Feedback was positive - he had found the fun! It was drek visually, but gameplay was strong and showed potential. Mechanics and features were piled on with glee until the controls became so unwieldy even the designer couldn't remember what buttons fired what weapons. The ship was listing and cargo needed to be dumped...
