“BreakQuest: Extra Evolution is an unusual game: from one side it’s a full sequel to BreakQuest, one of the best block-breaking and genre defining games licensed to us by its creator, Nurium Games, but from another side it’s a completely new game which incorporates our vision and is based on our inspiration from playing the original BreakQuest,” said Alexey Menshikov, CEO and Founder of Beatshapers. “What we did was we took the best game and design elements of the original BreakQuest and rebuilt it from the ground using today’s approach to the genre.”
With the release of BreakQuest: Extra Evolution, Beatshapers continues its move from porting to developing its own titles for the current and next-generation of consoles.
