“During Halloween 2016, I bought real hazmat gear so that my nephew and I could go trick-or-treating as real hazmat guys! That’s when the hazmat suit mechanism just came to me. As the project gained momentum, I studied puzzles with the goal of creating a fun game while also making players think. The rest, as they say, is history.” – Tod Powers (Founder and solo developer for National Spork).
Hazmat Hijinks: Total Meltdown is available now on Steam, Mac App Store and the App Store.
