Mayhem Intergalactic was recently awarded a place in the Student Showcase of the 2008 Independent Games Festival in San Francisco, often called the Sundance of video games. The game was subsequently featured on the Australian gaming TV show "Good Game".
"The IGF was a unique experience," says Chris Pelling, the founder and sole employee of Inventive Dingo, who also studies full-time at university. "Everyone who tried the game said they loved it. I'm a bit of an upstart, even for an independent game developer, so I felt quite out of place there - too indie for indie! - until people actually started playing the game and voicing their opinions on it. Once they got to that stage, they were hooked!"
Mayhem Intergalactic keeps things simple. Unlike many other strategy games, there are no complicated technology charts to learn, no unit rosters to choose from, and no tedious resource-collecting activities to engage in. A typical game session lasts mere minutes rather than hours. Yet despite this simplicity, the game contains a surprising amount of tactical depth. Attractive graphics and a stirring original soundtrack, which adjusts dynamically depending on your progress, round off the package.
Mayhem Intergalactic can be played against the computer or over the Internet. It costs $19.99 USD, and is available for Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista. Versions for Mac OS X and Linux are planned; users of those platforms are encouraged to sign up for the email newsletter at http://www.inventivedingo.com/. Doing so will ensure they receive a notification when the game becomes available for their platform.
