How Alt Shift brought their story-rich spacefaring experience to mobile

July 26, 2022

Creating a captivating, immersive sci-fi world with a pixel art look and feel is quite an accomplishment. But getting it out the door in a minimal-crunch environment after deciding to go multiplatform mid-project takes that achievement to the next level.

From Not-Not: A Brain Buster to Crying Suns, Alt Shift has relied on Unity for every successful release. The platform has proved its worth each time with its full complement of collaborative artist tools, extensibility, multiplatform capabilities, and continuous integration/continuous development (CI/CD) features. These tools helped the Alt Shift team rapidly prototype for iOS and Android to determine if going mobile was worth the investment. And with profits at 10x the porting costs, it’s clear that they made the right bet.
