History

Snorms was born from the desire to create a shooting game in an isometric view based on old Doom games gameplay (labyrinthine levels, enemy infighting, etc.) while adding modern enhancements: experience, upgradeable weapons, leveling, etc.
The project began in early August 2011, first public alpha version was made available for free on December 2011 and on March 2012 the game has been accepted for alpha funding on Desura.com.
After 3 months of Alpha the final 1.0 version is finally available for 6.99 € on Desura.com and Snorms.com !
In April 2013, version 2.0 has been made available, featuring top-view, gamepad support, achievements,...
And in may-june 2013 Snorms has been selected by the Indie Game Stand community to appear in a daily sale
