Stanton has always expressed interest in game development, even if he has always found himself behind the 8-ball at times. "I never had the latest technology or consoles when my friends did, so I was always eager to claw my way into that world," he said. "One day in college, I made a clone of the classic DOS game Paratrooper and decided I might just be able to make games for a living."
His previous efforts have all helped lead to Vespidae, which Stanton takes a special pride in. "Vespidae is my most polished project to date," he added. "I have a tendency to lose faith in my own work as a project nears completion and start cutting corners, but this time I'm doing my best to see it through and make Vespidae the game it needs to be to succeed."
With the project still early in development, Stanton has the tough task of deciding what will be included and what will remain on the cutting room floor. "I don't know what will fit in this game and what will get bumped to the sequel, but there is a long list of additions," he muses. "Different weapons affecting your flight through weight, different propulsion systems, achievements and challenges, offline mode, Capture the Flag, leaderboards, more maps, the list goes on and on."
There is no final release date for Vespidae at this time. However, if you'd like to check out Vespidae in its current form, check it out on
