My name Christian Teister. I have studied Computional Visualistics in Magdeburg and love to create games since 2001. Over the years I have created a couple of small games. In 2008/2009 I have worked at Replay Studios on Velvet Assassin, a stealth-game for PC and XBox 360, as a game programmer. After that I decided to develop Grappling Hook, my biggest project till now.

Thank you. :)
Metroid Prime inspired the helmet, because I saw it on a screenshot.
The most important inspirations for the gameplay and level design were Cold Ice, Braid, Portal, Mirrors Edge and Super Mario.

Thanks for playing the demo! I'm happy you enjoyed it.

The whole game is written in Java.

Why is it impossible for you to buy the full version?
There is a contest, where you can win a full copy by answering a question: Speedrungames.com
But you have to hurry a bit.

Sorry. Grappling Hook doesn't work with onboard GPUs, because it uses 2 pixel shader.

Because of two full-screen shader-effects the minimum requirement for the graphics card is: 256 MB NVIDIA GeForce 9600 series or ATI Radeon HD 2600 series.
I will add an option to disable the shader, so that the game will run on PCs with older graphics cards.

Could you send me some details about your PC via PM? Sound- and graphics-chip are most important.
Thank you very much.

DotA is the best mod for Warcraft 3 I know. I understand that some don't like it, because you have to learn a lot to play at least decent. But when you have learned it, it is an incredible and unique experience.
I'm impressed, that a game made by so many different people, has such a strong and clear design.
Thank you for this awesome mod!
