Sine Mora is a visually stunning dieselpunk shoot'em up game, released to universal critical acclaim this March on the Xbox Live Arcade platform. The game was co-developed by Digital Reality (Hungary) and Grasshopper Manufacture (Japan), and hailed by many as the future of East-West collaborations. Theodore Reiker, who designed, wrote and directed the title will guide you through the development process, the many challenges represented by a co-production, and will try to solve one of the oldest mysteries of our industry: glowing reviews aside, how can a game that was tailored to succeed from start to finish ultimately fail.
