BattleTabs

A bite-sized PVP strategy game of wits and luck, BattleTabs is a casually competitive, turn-based multiplayer game where players built up their fleets and battle one another.

Inspired by the simplicity of classic boardgames like Battleships and the depth of modern collectible card games like Hearthstone, BattleTabs is easy to pick up and play, with unique ship abilities and deck-building systems where players can create their own fleets to bring to battle.

The game can be played in real-time or asynchronously over a few days. Players can also create private matches to play with friends, or generate custom battle links to invite anyone to play.

BattleTabs is a competitive game with an active and friendly community of players hosting tournaments, sharing replays and streams. The BattleTabs community is a big part of the overall experience, with the community voting on new ships, suggesting ideas, testing new features, and helping new players – an important area of the project that we will continue to support.

Playhead

Playhead is a puzzle-platformer based inside a media player that uses the familiar timeline ui to manipulate time and progress through the levels. We plan on having an early noughties web cartoon art style with a variety of environments and playlists to explore.

The story is that you are a bot looking for glitches in the system and trying to fix them. The game will resemble online video sharing sites and will include a loose storyline told through the comments section allowing us to further showcase our Dislectek Tool.

Project Flotsam

Project Flotsam is ultimately about overcoming grief and finding peace through gardening. Heather, the main character, gradually comes to terms with the troubled relationship with her deceased mother through the act of clearing away her forgotten witch’s garden and starting anew. Never having been gifted with the herb magics, through the interaction with the plants Heather discovers powers she didn’t think she had, and begins to see her world from a different perspective.

A beautiful, cozy, slice-of-life, narrative focused game that doesn’t shy away from the more melancholy and dark aspects of life we all have to go through at some point.

Schrodinger’s Catgirl

Schrodinger’s Catgirl is an adventure point-and-click visual novel, inspired by titles such as the Ace Attorney series, Resident Evil, and Until Dawn. Explore different rooms and floors in the manor with Lemi and Leon, finding more clues and evidence to build your case.

Time itself has fractured, and using the flash from her camera, Lemi is able to switch rooms between their past and present versions. The more they investigate, the more reality itself collapses— there are infinite possibilities for what really happened, with each combination of events leaving its own trail of evidence.
