Escape The Maze

I haven’t blogged for a while, because I was busy with my new game project. Working title: „Escape The Maze“

Grown up with 16 Bit Home Computers like Atari ST & Amiga and being also fan of the demo scene, I wondered if it is possible to create a Dungeon Master clone on limited hardware like an  Apple Watch. The Game will also run on iPhones, iPads, Macs & Apple TVs.

I will blog about the progress of my game and what I learned during the implementation phase. One of the next articles will be about UI test automation with XCUI and SceneKit.

That’s all for the moment.

Cheers,
Stefan
