Who all are involved in the making of the Game?

We are a team of 3 people working on this game. I started this Game studio in 2013

Can you tell us more about your Team Members?

Two of us are Engineers and one is an architect. We started this as a hobby.

What inspired you to create this Game?

The theme of our game is around reconstructing a city that was destroyed by an earthquake. If you remember in 2011 in Japan there was an earthquake and a Tsunami. This caused a nuclear reactor to meltdown. This game is based on this real life incident, where we have to save the city and remove all radioactive danger form the city Further this type of games are very rare.

What is the best part of the Game according to you?

See there are a lot of games about racing cars, trucks, trains etc. But all deal with only one type of vehicle. This game gives you the unique opportunity to control almost 40 vehicles at the same time. These are heavy vehicles and these have physics added for realistic feel. The best part is the sense of achievement that you get when you progress towards the goal. Each level adds a new dimension to the game. We have trains, cars, busses, excavators, trailers, tippers, helicopters, etc.

Do you think this is the reason why your game is better than other games of the same Genre?

One of the reasons. The main reason is that there is a real life story attached to the game play. There is a better connect for the user. It has a sense of target as to why a mission needs to be done. Further graphics are designed with extreme detail

Why did you choose only that Incident? Why not any other?

It had the most impact on society.It was a combination of natural and manmade disaster and given that our theme was construction, we felt it apt
