DEVELOPER NOTE:

Squirrelmageddon! was made on the Unreal Engine by a solo developer using both custom and marketplace assets. I am making a game with a balance of shooter, RPG and action arcade gameplay. It's janky, it's un-polished, it's insane and will be continually being updated until I'm ready to start Squirrelmageddon! 2.

Expect continual improvements and new features at least until the end of 2022!

I want to thank everyone who has contributed to the project with their advice, help, and support.

Thank you as well to Epic, Steam and all the talented asset creators who have made their awesome work available to us solo-devs - without whom crazy experimental games like this would never have been possible...!

Hope you have some fun and laughs with Squirrelmageddon!

See you top-side!
