Ailment — pixel-art mobile action game

Developing indie mobile game on my own. Knowing no coding previously. Using C# and Unity3d.



March 9 2017 in the middle of the night I was really bored and I’ve realised that I really want to do something new for me, something that could make me feel like a kid learning, creating and playing at the same time. And you know what I did?

I’ve decided make games. And because I had some minor experience with Unity 3d engine previously and also I’ve done one small mobile game previously with my friend Alex. And also because I am CGI Artist(this thing helped a looot).

For that small game I was doing graphics when my Alex was coding. But this time I wanted to learn how to code and becuase Unity has only 2 options I chose C#.

I’ve started studying on my own watching tutorials, video-courses, reading forums and blogs. And I was spending 5–6 hours a day learning. And doing all that after permanent job. Those were very very tough days. And again very very very tough days and nights.

But it was so exiting! I loved it! And I still love it! After month of training myself I felt more confident and I’ve created this idea of this game Ailment. In the beginning the names was Infection. But then I’ve changed it, to make more unique. I wanted to combine nice 2d pixel-art style with good action game-play and all that with a sauce of interesting story behind. So I’ve started learning also how to draw in pixel art style. Again tutorial, courses…

And here we go 3 months later. The game is on it’s way to finish. In September 2017 is gonna be the released. I’m also having YouTube video-diary, recording every week the progress I’m doing for the game. During these months I’ve learned so much, and I am so exited right now, creating Ailment.

The game starts in the med-bay of the spaceship where main character just woke up after being unconscious. And the last thing he remembers was returning from the other spaceship where he had a rescue mission. But everybody on that ship was already dead.

And now he needs to find out what happened.

I hope you’ll enjoy being a part of dramatic story when one man trying to find the truth. Experience exciting battles with tons of different enemies. Huge arsenal of weapon will help you in your journey. Pixel art style graphics combined with atmospheric lighting will create dramatic mood to make your experience more engaging.
