    About us
    Lukas Hoenderdos is a game developer at heart and likes getting his hands deep in code. After four years of working in the game industry at an award winning studio, he decided it was time to go independent and started his own company, Rejected Games. An Alien with a Magnet will be it’s first released title.

    Ricardo de Zoete is an artist who has started his career as a illustrator, creating different mascots for small Dutch companies. He’s graduated as a Animation and Games designer. During his study he working as an intern at the same award winning studio as Lukas, where they actually first met each other. He was also working as a Visual Designer at his freelance company called RZDESIGN. After all that he decided to fully submerge into creating games himself.

    His first game was Push Panic! which which was a collaboration with Barry Kostjens, released on iOS and has been downloaded over 2 million copies since then. After that he created Hyper Breaker Turbo, a Breakout-like game with a modern look and feel. An Alien with a Magnet is his third big title for iOS and also his first game for other platforms.

    Thanks for the comments! We really appreciate those! Anyhow, I would love to give you an update on what we've improved since last time. We have been really busy sorting a lot of game mechanics and also have been really busy with improving some 'final' graphics that will actually be used in game.

    The screens we've showed so far were early concept artworks which give a basic idea of the game look and feel. We have finalised the graphics for the main character sprite. Also we have finished one planet to use in our development to sort out the controls and feel you have while playing with the base gameplay mechanic and how the character responds to that.

    Here are some before and after images of how the graphics were in the concept art and how they will be in the final game. And yes, the whole game will be hand-drawn!

    Today we want to show you the teaser video we’ve made. Its short and probably leaves you with all kind of questions. If so, we did our job well

    Fun fact: It took us 6 hours to create this 20 seconds video.

    We have made quite some progress on our game. That is why we decided to make another Teaser Trailer! This one actually shows a demo level. So you can get the feeling what this game will be all about!

    We now have cannons! Every game needs atleast one cannon right? ;)

    I'll record a video of it action as soon as I've got some spare time. The cannon has a quirky animation load and shoot animation and some nice particles I want to show you.

    In the meantime checkout this screenshot:

    Sorry for the 'kick' but we've made a major update to the first post! Why? Since we've finished the game and got it submitted in the App Store! It'll be out in August 2013 (probably the first) for €0.99 & $0.99. Check out our latest Official Tailer in the main post! We hope you enjoy it! :)
