Description

Salmi Games is dedicated to crafting attractive, polished games that both delight and respect the player. Our games are created with the firm belief that the path to success is built upon this attention to delivering a quality product. We proudly craft our games in Munich, Germany.

History

Early history

Our core team met at a design jam in 2012. Enjoying our collaboration, we jammed regularly on game ideas until we happened on Ellipsis. Development continued sporadically until we could gather the resources to take the plunge. Code, design and art responsibilities are shared and audio is handled by our associate composer Filippo.

After that

Working nights and week-ends since 2013, Ellipsis has evolved from a simple concept to a deep experience. We have toiled away at our day jobs to support ourselves while chasing the indie dream. During the last few months we have taken the leap into full-time development. We have polished and prepared Ellipsis for what we hope will be market success and released it on iPad and iPhone February 11th 2016. We ported it to Apple TV releasing May 11th 2016 and finally published the game on Android June 15th 2016. Currently, we are preparing the Steam version which will be released in January 2017, featuring various new content, including a level editor.

Ellipsis

Ellipsis lets you guide a ship with your finger, entering a mysterious and ambient universe. Planning and agility are required to evade a variety of enemies and overcome puzzles with patience and dexterity.

PC Version

On January 25th 2017, we released the best version ever of Ellipsis on PC (Windows, Linux and Mac).

We added new levels, new visuals, new sounds, controller support, an in-game level editor with level sharing and tons of polish!
