State of grey is a Indie Horror game in development by Skyline Interactive (But you already knew that!) State of Grey will be a free to download and free to play style of game, the game play works around a survival horror and traumatizing style of game. The game is played from a "Birds Eye" view as the camera is above and following the character around, some think this will give you an advantage in the game, But please, Don't get over confident to soon... State of Grey is played with older 2D style of graphics we try to make up for this with the excessive and addictive amounts of game play, the environment you will be put in and the style of game we hope you enjoy

We're still here, here's an apology for our lack of posts, and our reasons why, along with our progress!

Posted by TimeDead on Jan 16th, 2013

What's been happening, what we've done, and a request for help:
Hello everyone! It's been a while since we posted last and we really do apologize, it's been a rough month for us with being busy and all. However, we have not forgotten about the game! First off I would like to post this:
We are in desperate need for 2D animator(s) to draw, work, and obviously animate 2D sprites, objects, and other items within the game itself. If you yourself or know anyone with these abilities please contact me Via one of these emails: d.hershman@skylineinteractive.org or Applications@skylineinteractive.org This is our current TOP priority as without an animator the game is extremely clunky and very unfriendly user wise. This is why we have been lacking in the area of progress, as it's hard to progress with something you don't know how to do ha!
