To tell you a little more about us, I'm our artist, David Henry. (22) Almost everything visual from models to UI is made by me and I see myself as the creative heart of our duo. Throughout my life I've always had an intense passion for gaming and the second I loaded up Final Fantasy XII for the first time in my PS2 all those years ago I knew that video games are what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
After growing over the years and teaching myself to model, I met the brilliant coder of our team, Mixtape a.k.a. Marquis Madden (22) in my junior year science class. We hit it off immediately and he became the backbone of this duo as well as one of my closest friends. He grew up playing Halo on his Xbox and always wanted to create compelling and immersive experiences and by teaching himself to code, we became 2 halves of a whole!
We call that whole, Craptop Studios. Nice to meet you!

Arena of the Gods v1.5a is now live! Here's what we changed in this update:
- The Arena Sees All!
Added current game stats to the pause menu. Said stats track many variables such as, the amount of enemies slain, damage dealt, attack accuracy, rolls performed, damage taken, distance traveled, etc. In future updates, the info menu will also rate your performance in the arena with a grade from D- to S+.
- UI AI
Added custom cursors to the game. The cursors are context sensitive and change when you attack an enemy, and based on what you hover over.
Silver: Base Cursor
Blue: Hovering over the player
Red: Hovering over an enemy/enemy projectile
- Size Matters
Updated Lance/Shortsword hitboxes to be more accurate. Lance hitbox length slightly decreased. Shortsword hitbox is now thiccer than a bowl of oatmeal.
- Smooth As Butter
Demon spawning is more random and enemies dont pop up next to you nearly as much. No more gangs of enemies popping up in your face!
- To Infinity, And Beyond!
The current Horde mode is ACTUALLY endless now. To those of you that actually lived long enough to run out of enemies, I salute you.
- Stop And Go
Fixed a bug where Magic Bridges would not reactivate after time passed, resulting in the player being cut off from said bridge, permanently.
Version 1.5a Hotfix:
- UI AI (cont'd)
Added Cursor to the main/pause menus.
Blue Caster enemies no longer switch from white to blue after spawning.
- Tis But A Flesh Wound!
Blue Caster enemies now deal the correct amount of damage instead of a miniscule amount.
- Photographic Memory
Video settings are now saved upon leaving the menu and exiting the game.
That's all for now! Have fun, and I'll see you in our next update!
