The game was written with ease of play in mind, instantly join a multiplayer game with no waiting around in lobbies, other players will be automatically assigned to any free slots.
Carl Jones, director and lead developer at Pixel Knights said, “I started writing games on a Commodore64 at the young age of 10, mostly because I didn’t have a tape player with it to load them up.

But recently I’ve been really captivated by mobile gaming and so decided it was time to re-kindle my passion for game development.”
Heavy Steel is the company’s first online multiplayer game (previous releases were solo play only), so expect great things to emerge from this new studio. It shows the company’s growing commitment to bringing
