When Adam Butcher was 14 years old, he had a vision for a video game that he wanted to make. It was a little bulky in scope, sure, but it was the game he wanted to play, and he had the tools to make it.
So began the development of Tobias and the Dark Sceptres, a game that, 13 years later, is finally complete. Butcher has spent nearly half of his life adding bits and bobs to this epic saga, and at the age of 27, he’s finally done.
