Cast Away by Painfully Awesome

About: “Cast Away” is a casual, 3D, real-time artillery game that was developed for the Game Capstone Final Project program at Full Sail University. Our design team consisted of fourteen student programmers, artists and producers, and we completed the game 100% on our own over a five-month development cycle.

Awards: In March 2011, “Cast Away” became a semifinalist in the South by SouthWest ScreenBurn Independent Propeller Awards, presented by South by SouthWest and indiePub. You can find more information about the contest here.
