Description

PyroMind is an action puzzle game that goes boom! Conceived as a strange love letter to Minesweeper, Snake and Pong, the game tasks you with defusing bombs and evading chain reactions in a merciless spectacle of explosions and narrow escapes. Play alone, challenge a friend or confront a bot. Choose your own pace, as the gameplay combines both real time and turn-based elements. Just be prepared to die a lot when shooting for a high score. After all, explosive environment is hazardous for your health.

History

The prototype of PyroMind was created by a programmer Dmitrijus Babicius and visual designer Vaclav Marcenkevic during AppCamp 2014 – Lithuania's largest annual hackathon. The duo had been dreaming of crafting a game that would feel as simple, universal and refreshing as Tetris in its early days. After two days of work, the presented prototype was received exceptionally well by the jury, and was awarded the Best Game prize. However, it was not before a couple of years later when Dmitrijus returned to game development, determined to finish the game and release it on Steam. Today, upgraded with multiplayer, bot battles, new mechanics, and bosses, PyroMind is here to deliver hours of deadly explosive fun for players of all ages.

About DBabicius

Boilerplate
My name is DBabicius and I create minimalist games with unique ideas. A survival horror game consisting of a single image. A reversed Arkanoid-like game where you protect the blocks. A game with story, bosses and multiplayer where everything is a loading screen. The list goes on. Simple originality is my goal and purpose.
