About the Game:
In Voxterium : Revision, you assume the role of an advanced security program tasked with the containment and destruction of a new breed of digital threat. The game, at its core, is a arcade-style shooter. However, it distinguishes itself from the duel stick, areana genre-mates by being a little more “spherical”. The player is locked in orbit, in 3-D space around the self replicating enemy, forced to focus on its origin while taking it out byte by byte. Quick reproduction is not the enemy’s only defense. A steadystream of varied attacks each provide their own challenge. Fortunately, upgrades can be collected that increase firepower, pause time, and even self replicate.
The game is developed by Ross Pinkstaff, founder of Picardy Third Entertainment. The game features the music of Zephaniah Harrington, a musician from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

History and Development
Voxterium : Revision is a sequel to Voxterium, a game created in 48 hours for the 22nd Ludum Dare Competition (http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-22/?uid=7470). Although this was my first game jam, (and for that matter, first public game development anything) Voxterium was well received. It placed in the top 50 in four categories and received some very encouraging feedback. I made the decision to back-burner all my other game projects, and make it my primary focus.
About the Developer
My name is Ross Pinkstaff, founder of Picardy Third Entertainment. I am technically in the game development business part time, however most of the time it feels like my second full time job. I’ve played video games since my father plopped me in front of VIC-20 in the early 80’s, and have been fascinated with the industry’s evolution over that time. Game design has always been my dream, and this year marks the time when I finally decided to get out the stands and hit the field. I have spent the last ten years learning programming and development in pursuit of that dream. I work out of a small town outside Tulsa, Oklahoma. I wear boots, I am obsessed with college football and fishing, and I have a beard.
