About Retrific Game Studio

Retrific, founded 2013 in Hamm, NRW, is a German, one-man, independent game studio by student Jonathan Mannshoven specialized on gameplay focused 2D PC games, prioritizing fun over narrative.

Some games that I worked on are Just Get Through, Colt Canyon or Invisibox.

I'm also known for some free games and prototypes that I made either by myself or in cooperation with fellow students and developers. Some of these games are Shell Shift, Help! or Cosmic Combat.

Who is Retrific?
Retrific is the one-man indie game studio by Jonathan Mannshoven, a German game design student. I'm hoping to expand some day and get one or two more people on board. But no rush.
Currently I am working alone or with freelancers.

How can I stay updated about Retrific's upcoming projects?
Make sure to follow me on twitter. That's where I share all news first.
Or just sign up for the Retrific Mailing List where I will send you a mail when I have really exciting news to share. I will only use the newsletter for big announcement, so if you want to always be up-to-date you should follow me on twitter too.

Am I allowed to make, publish and monetize videos of your games?
Yes, absolutely! You can do let's plays, reviews or whatever and use footage of my games. You are also allowed to monetize your videos. Make sure to include a link to the game in your video descriptions.

Why was the development on game xyz canceled?
Developing a game is very exhausting, takes a lot of time and can be very difficult. Sometimes I don't like to work on a project anymore because I no longer enjoy working on it or because the project became too big too handle for me alone. I don't have the funds to pay anyone to help me with my projects so it can happen that I have to abort a project even though I would love to keep working on it. But maybe I'll continue my work at a later point in time or start from scratch some time in the future.
