Description

Sixth Extinction is a dark and atmospheric, story-driven puzzle game about revenge, extinction, and violence. For adult audiences only.

Spoiler alert: the game is actually about increasing awareness for the real life extinction crisis, disguised as a puzzle game. Read more about the hidden agenda.

History

In October 2017 I took a vacation from work and started working on my first game. I already had very strong idea about the story and what I wanted to say with the game. The game is based on a story and the puzzles were added on top of the idea. From the start I had some design rules to follow: 1) puzzles should be unique and non-repeating, 2) don't waste player's time and 3) treat player as a thinking human being. In 2019 I created a legal name Polte Games, in case I would be able to create games as a full time job. Sixth Extinction game was done during weekends, holidays and evenings after work. In the first year over 100 different beers were consume while making the game. After that, I stopped counting.
