About
A dungeon crawler. About 3 friends and their quest for an unknown treasure.

Developed by ManyHat that was founded during our time at The Game Assembly. We had a 9 week deadline. As much as we wanted to add more features we had to scrap alot of ideas to meet the deadline. This is our own engine. Hope you enjoy it!

You can reach us here or on our facebook page.
Since we do not make games together anymore we recommend you use facebook for support but please read this first:

It's Friday friends, which means four more fantastically free games for the budget sensitive gamers among us!

First up on the freedom talent stage is ILLUSION - Ghost Killer. The goal of IGK is quite simple; position six cameras in a mysterious shed that has people reporting hearing scary things. But it is never that simple is it? The next game swaps one type of madness for another. Introducing NEED FOR MADNESS (caps included) a very mad car racing and crashing game where you perform stunts to power your car and win by either racing (finishing in first place) or wasting the other cars!


Up next is Lair of the Madhat with a very simple, no fuss dungeon crawler about 3 friends and their quest for an unknown treasure. Your Freedom Friday wraps up with Love Sniper a comedy BxG Visual Novel about Heiji, a cupid named Picchu and their antics in helping Heiji find true love.


Come back next week as we deliver another four main courses all for free!

I'm deeply in love with this game and this is a pure and true adventure game in so many ways, in my opinion. You've made an excellent job to bring the pure fun and wonder of an adventure game and I hope to see more of your work in the future :).

Here is a link to the first part of my playthrough series of the game:

Yeah well, if we would be able to choose we would have gone with dx10 so everyone could play our game ofc. It was a school project in our own engine, one of the requirements was to develop it for dx11
