Kickstarter: HoverGrease

I’m always impressed by the ingenuity, tenacity and general inventiveness of small indie teams. HoverGrease – which is currently seeking funds on Kickstarter – is, almost unbelievably, the work of a two person team, Altergaze. Having already been in development for two and a half years, the team need some assistance to get the game over the finish line. The […]
