Unfortunately HIVE's had to take the back seat at C117 over the past month or two due to some organisational restructuring. The plus side of this is the I have the following C117 related news:
1. C117 is now called C117 Games
2. We're looking to employ (set fee per piece). If you or anyone you know are interested in the following roles then get in contact

4. We have a shiny new splash screen (click it to see a low res animated version with sound!

From here we'll be working on finishing off the demo and getting that out there with the kickstarter link. Once that's done... it's time to knuckle down and turn the story into a game
My Recent Reviews
Lily going a bit overboard on the new Kinect toy. Indy's a little bit knackered afte rhis shot so he's having a time out on the couch.
Indy's first attempt at Sonic the Hedgehog. Didn't last long before Lily took the controller back as all he did was run right into those piranha guys. Green Hill Act 2
