“Tax Invaders”, HaxeFlixel and Future Development

Posted in Game Development on August 2, 2015 by cannibalcat

We’ve decided to adopt a new development platform, which is also widely cross-platform friendly at the same time. For this we are looking at a Haxe/OpenFL/HaxeFlixel stack for future projects. Our first prototype is already in the works entitled “Tax Invaders”, a remake/tribute to an old obscure game called “Embargo” for the Atari 8-Bit computer systems that was programmed by Bill Hooper of Solitare Group and distributed by Gebelli Software. We’ve greatly enhanced the game, and even introduced a competitive head-to-head multiplayer mode. Some proto screens are shown below of both single and multiplayer modes:
