Imangi Studios, made up of husband and wife team Keith Shepherd and Natalia Luckyanova, were also in attendance at WWDC 2010. We met up with Luckyanova who sat down and gave us a hands on demo of their upcoming dual stick shooter Max Adventure. We had previewed the game back in April which remains a work in progress. Imangi hopes to have the game ready by the end of July.
The game’s plot consists of an end-of-the-world scenario where all the adults have been abducted by aliens. That leaves you, Max, as the only one who can save the other children and save the world.
The game specifics remain a work in progress but currently features multiple weapons (standard, wide spread, dual shot, radial shot), powerups (invincibility, power boost) and 3 different types of enemies. They haven’t finalized the number of levels that the final game will contain.
Max Adventure is due for release in late July. Both Natalia and Keith are active participants in our forums as nattylux and kshep.
