Martian Arctic Games
Founder, project manager, and lead programmer Devin Passage dropped out of UCLA in the late 90s, abandoning a promising career in English Literature to move to Denver. Why? To make a computer game with a friend he met on the internet and get some solid snow driving experience. Sadly, that project never got underway, but it did plant a seed which has grown into the respectable-sized shrub that is the Martian Arctic Games of today.
Feeling a deep, soulful need for a 3D, internet playable remake of Herzog Zwei, Martian Arctic Games began production of Cyber-Wing in May of 2008 and completed the project in time to submit it to both the Independent Games Festival and the Indie Game Challenge in 2009. Unfortunately, it was not very well received by the judges, who were probably looking for something a little more polished and a little less demanding of its players. Fortunately, Cyber-Wing did get some attention from some outstanding press outlets who appreciated the immense effort that went into the game.
Now, Martian Arctic Games has blasted off for a new adventure, which will be announced very soon. Additionally, to tide everyone over, Martian Arctic will be re-releasing several past game projects which will be available on this website very soon.
