Twin Drills

TwinDrills is the name we use to release games produced by the indie game development duo made up of Tim 'Infini' Leonard (the resident code monkey) and Jordan 'Jordizzle' Chewning (our amazing pixel artist). With the additional help of Steven 'Surasshu' Velema from YogurtBox who produces our amazing chiptune music!

We produce games primarily that we want to play, in the hope that others will love them as much as we do.

We started producing games roughly around 2008. After serveral years of non-starters and year long breaks we released our first public project - Zombie Grinder.

Zombie Grinder is currently our main focus of development, aiming to hopefully release a gold build sometime in the near future. Our current progress on this, and playable builds, can be found by browsing through the Zombie Grinder category on the left.

The success and community that has built up with Zombie Grinder have greatly inspired us, giving us many ideas for future projects - so watch this space :).

Zombie Grinder

Zombie Grinder is the debut game of TwinDrills.

It's a multi-platform (windows, mac, linux!) cooperative multiplayer arcade game, reminiscent in style and gameplay of retro games like 'Zombies Ate My Neighbors' and 'Super Smash TV!', but with the added benefit of some newer game mechanics - achievements, ranking, player-customization, rpg style stats and so forth.

The game sports a variety of different game modes, from co-operative 'campaign' style levels, to wave maps and even the classic 'pvp' style game modes - deathmatch, capture the 'bag' and so forth. All of these mods are bristling with a variety of weapons and items, all lovingly displayed in Jordan's classic quirky pixel-art style.

Press Reviews

Occasionally we get some very nice people posting reviews and general coverage of our games on their websites, when we notice them we put them up here (if you post a review, send us a message, we would love to hear!).

We aren't selective over which reviews we post, so hopefully the reviews should give you a nice unbiased view of the game.
