“The reason why this type of game was chosen to be made is because of the fact that gaming and also building games is an interesting thing, the thought that this would be an interesting spin on the typical games out there. This idea has the ability to grow into a fully-fledged game, in the genre that most gamers seem to enjoy. It needed to be done to give people a new experience in an already existing genre.”
