Abridge is Aaron’s first Steam release. In the summer of COVID in 2020, Aaron decided to learn Game Development. After participating in GTMK Game Jam 2020 and completing the Game Jam, it ignited his passion for building games. He started coming up with game ideas, prototyping in Unity and learning as much as he could on YouTube. Among those game ideas was an idea for an abstract, Sokoban-style game, which later became Abridge. Aaron drew inspiration from popular titles, Baba Is You and The Witness, and wondered what it would be like if these gameplay concepts were combined. Shortly after, development on Abridge started in July 2020. He started with pen and paper, making levels by hand, until the systems were too complex to manually track. Then, he started implementing each system into Unity. Over 2 yrs of slow, steady, iterative progress on the game design, puzzles, art, and music, the result is a unique, hand-crafted, Sokoban-style game. Abridge is expected to release on October 14, 2022 on Steam and itch.io.
