Afterburn is a tiny, 4-person student team based in Lodz, Poland, and our specialty is crafting small, worthwhile experiences with interesting mechanics and pleasant visuals. Our first release, Golf Peaks was just that – a compact puzzle game that didn’t over-promise anything and delivered a couple of hours of solid puzzling for a reasonable price. With inbento we’re planning to see how much we’ve grown as a team. While retaining the same principles (solid puzzle gameplay, minimal art style, no IAP/ads), we’re also adding a simple story to the mix in order to push the game a bit further. The inspiration for the game came from bento cuisine, which we’ve been practicing in for a couple of years as a healthy, convenient way of preparing meals for school and work; parenting, which is something that’s been weighing on our minds since two of the team’s founders have recently been married; and cats, as evidenced by Golf Peaks’ separate credits section.
