Aqua Kitty was made by a core team of two people with audio created by Electric Cafe and the game box art by artist David Hankin. It began as a small modern-retro styled PC game, designed to run at a crisp 1280x720 it was created with a love of the 16bit gaming era and late 80s video arcade games. There are 3 core versions of the game available of different hardware - PC, XBox360 and Sony PSM. Sony version is the oldest and smallest version. A critically acclaimed launch title for PSM (Vita). XBox version is the Sony version with extra added levels + enemies + refinements. PC version is the most feature rich and improves on the XBox one with new Weapons + Gradius style Arcade mode + yet further refinements and extra details (with the Steam version being unique in having online leaderboards and achievements). All the new things we have added to the Steam version will also be rolled back into the other PC versions unless Steam specific (ie Online leaderboards, achievements, trading cards are STEAM ONLY).
