Gilator a Filipino Indie Game Developer

Its no secret the game developers aren't the most prominent or lucrative jobs in the Philippines as there isn't much opportunity to begin with. So let us introduce the team behind Gilator, a 4 man indie game dev team in the Philippines.



That's right Gilator is composed of only 4 members small yet talented in their field. With a small team they have already made some achievements, for example, they developed an MMORPG game called Pacifica Online within 6 months.



Galileo acts as the lead programmer for the games developed by Gilator



Donie is the game designer, story writer and responsible for the game's music



Jet is the art director as well as the 3D artist for the team



Justine is the illustrator and game animator



You may be asking how a small team managed to accomplish these things, well it's not always sun and sunshine. According to the team due to limitations the team became resourceful enough and use open source software, tools, and components to create games.



The Gilator team also shares their journeys and encourages upcoming Filipino game developers in the country as they participate in conferences and hold seminars to inspire the youth in the game development industry.



So whats next for Gilator? EDGE OF TIME!!!



The team has an upcoming title called Edge of Time according to the description this is "A 3D action & puzzle video game series about humanity's war against a horde of immortal monsters that threatens mankind with extinction".

Gameplay and Impressions

To top all of that the game is available for download as a demo here.




The Demo content is the episode 1 called "Edge of Time Ep 1: Rise of the Aeus". This game is still in "early access" and currently in development so expect some bugs.



Edge of Time is also going to have un upcoming kick starter this 2018 so if you want to support the game you can be notified here https://edgeoftime.download/subscribe/?ref=gamejolt-page and get enlisted for future updates
