Raptus Games is a Chilean X Australian independent game developer made up of Bernardo Del Castillo and Sam Mummery, and here goes a tagline that explains why Raptus Games is the bestest game studio in the world.
Bernardo and Sam met as students in the vast land of Kangaroos, gaining their respective skills in Programming and Art. We Founded Raptus Games early 2011 and decided to learn the ropes in iOS development, Our first project was "Draw: The Showdown", a highly stylized western endless gallery shooter. Sadly during their first year of Raptus Games Bernardo, had to return to his homeland in Chile. Thankfully due to the wonders of the internet we have managed to stay true to our goals of being game developers, if only in a slightly odd fashion. Halfway around the world from each other, we continued to develop the game, and after 10 months "Draw: The Showdown" was released with mostly positive reviews. After some mild success we decided to update "Draw" with a lot of new content, spending the next 4 months working on "Draw 2.0", which was downloaded by over 1 million people.After that
Since then, We have slowly been working away on various projects. A true labor of love, our new iOS title named "Tap & Blast", has been in development for the last 18 months and jsut recently released on the Apple App Store ( July 15th 2014 ). "Tap & Blast" is a cheerfull, challenging and exciting "aerial platformer" with puzzle elements, and it marks the first game Bernardo and Sam have developed completely apart from one another. Expectedly, this situation has both pros and cons, and has presented various conflicts for the development. As we look forward to our next projects, ideas flow madly through the our skype chats, as to what we will make next... who knows? truly no-one can be sure.
