Game History and Company

The original Whirl the Squirrel was 100% 2D racing and nothing but, inspired by the SNES classic Uniracer, and had some of the worst/best programmer-created test graphics ever seen. Speeding along loops and hills was the main goal. As development progressed, and testers got their greedy hands on the game, almost every element was repeatedly redone or improved, and platforming elements were continually added to spice things up and make Whirl's high-speed journey even more entertaining. It was crafted over 2 years of long nights and seven day weeks by myself, Donovan Vice (design and programming), two talented freelancers for art and music, and a group of testers who made sure it rocked.

Whirl the Squirrel is the first title from Dioxis Mining.

I hope you have some fun with it ^_-
