Q: What did you use to make this game?
The game is programmed in C# and XNA. All the graphics are made with Adobe Photoshop, animations included.
Q: Given the title, is this a terribly grindy game?
There are hundreds of items waiting to be farmed, hidden puzzles in need of solving and plenty of side quests to complete… But if you prefer you can just go straight on with the main quest.
Q: Who are you guys and how long have you been working on this?
Secrets of Grindea is made by Teddy Sjöström (programming), Fred Ström (animations) and Vilya Svensson (all non-animated art).
We were originally game design students at the same program who found out we had the exact same taste in games. We’ve been working on Grindea since the summer of 2011.
The music is composed by Andrew Riley of Lucky Lion Studios
and the sound design is co-handled by Hallvard A. Ulsund and Mariusz Jasionowicz.
