You are a mine worker, stuck deep in an underground cave system. All you have is your hi-tech mining tools. In order to get out of the caves you have to shape the dynamic environment to your advantage. You can also create force fields for different purposes. Roast enemies with the laser field or jump higher with the bouncy field, for example.
Before starting GoodVole and Sandmason, Jaakko Assola worked at RedLynx, involved in games such as Trials Evolution and MotoHeroz. In the beginning of 2012, he started working on his master's thesis, dealing with the dynamic cave technology later used in Sandmason. Work on the thesis eventually led to a long one-man project, the result of which was the game. Fortunately, a couple of occasional but invaluable helpers and several enthusiastic testers joined the project along the way. The company was officially founded in September 2013. The development of Sandmason has been challenging without any funding, but the game is finished now.
- The game contains many puzzles, deadly traps, and bloodthirsty monsters. You have to use clever and unconventional ways to get past them.
- By finding treasure you can boost your abilities, making your quest for freedom and a well-earned vacation slightly easier to achieve. Get a scanner to see through walls or a scifi version of the good old ninja rope to be the king of the rock jungle!
- Fast-paced multi-player mode! The dynamic environment and many different weapons, tools, and tricks allow endless tactical possibilities to beat your enemies.
