Started up August 2017
Focusing on competitive games with unexplored mechanics
DeltaQuack was started in August 2017 by two young boys named Rune and Martin, after making some cool game prototypes as classmates, during their bachelor degree in programming and simulation. They joined Hamar Game Collective in the beginning of August, and finished a smaller game for Android called “What a Goofhead” that had been a personal project alongside school. Martin took a break for one year, and Rune decided to continue as a single developer.
There were 4-5 game projects on the list, but Rune decided to reboot a game project based on a rough prototype he made one of the previous years in school, called Gun & Buckler. The new prototype started in Godot Engine for a few days until a re-evaluation led to learning Unreal Engine and committing to use it for the game, in October.
Here’s an overview with GIFs and descriptions of some of the process:
We have no money :(
