Struggles of the developer
In 2017 they founded the Nodding Heads it has 3 founding members.
After founding the company they started a Kick-starter campaign but as you all know that game development is a very costly business and didn’t get the funding as they expected so they used their saving to develop the game instead of taking help from anyone .
But when it comes to publishing and marketing the game they again suffer financial crises and for that, they started searching for a publisher(the purpose of the publisher is to help the product manufacturer in financial terms so they can market the product on a global scale )in the end they found the publisher company Super.com(it’s a UK based indie game publisher organization )after that the game development started in full speed but because of a low count of developers the pre-production got started in July 2020
