Silver Grapple is a fast paced 2D platformer that lets you swing through the air at the speed of sound!

Silver Grapple is a game inspired by the feeling of flying, jumping and swinging through the air, it offers you the experience of firing your grapple as you reach terminal velocity arcing away from impending doom, newfound trajectory throwing you against gravity as you build up speed for your next swing, fire away with the Silver Grapple!

History

Silver Grapple began development in 2012 following the release of three finished games and the game's first prototype, a demonstration of the swinging mechanic that sparked plans for the full project. The aim was to create a game with a large scope, and spend several years developing it into a full length experience. Since then Silver Grapple has undergone five years of development and surrounded several other titles released by the studio. During this period Tom Campbell was brought on to produce the music and sound for the game. The game has since been shown at GCAP 2016 as a part of the student showcase and Casual Connect Singapore as a part of the Indie Prize. Silver Grapple is nearing completion with the release coming late 2017.
