AboutBismuth is a small independent game development group based in Aalborg, Denmark. Our focus is on making fun and fast-paced action games. The games mostly start out as prototypes from gamejams, in particular local jam "Indie9000". The great ones we keep developing after the jam.
While our games may vary in style and gameplay most share some common elements we consider part of our game design philosophy:
- Few but good levels. Each stage should contain something unique, be it graphic, music or gameplay.
- Simple control. Our games rarely require more than two buttons besides directions.
- Feedback. Everything in our games gives feedback. If something happens you will know it!
- Easy access. Anyone should be able to just sit down and start playing. Easy to learn, hard to master!
- Self contained. Nothing should be required to play the game besides the game itself and the controllers.
- Multiplayer. Because playing with friends is fun!
Random InfoThe name "Bismuth" was choosen because of all the cool properties of the chemical element. Bismuth crystals looks spectacular with many iricident colors.
Bismuth is a chemical element with symbol Bi and atomic number 83.
Bismuth chemically resembles arsenic and antimony.
Bismuth is slightly radioactive: its only primordial isotope, bismuth-209, decays with a half life more than a billion times the estimated age of the universe.
Bismuth is one of the first 10 metals to have been discovered.
The spiral, stair-stepped structure of bismuth crystals is the result of a higher growth rate around the outside edges than on the inside edges.
No other metal is verified to be more naturally diamagnetic than bismuth.
When burned in oxygen, bismuth burns with a blue flame and its oxide forms yellow fumes.
Its toxicity is much lower than that of its neighbors in the periodic table, such as lead, antimony, and polonium.
Bismuth has a high electrical resistance.
Elemental bismuth is denser in the liquid phase than the solid.
