Game history


Maybe you remember an old game from Microsoft called Cheese Terminator (released in 1992)?

Well, once, someone found a "voucher" (or some other coupon) for this game and decided to send it to Microsoft. Article (in polish) about it available here.

Microsoft decided to surprise this person and asked me to create a version of the game for Windows Phone (because they still existed at that time). Another polish article here.

So, in 2015, still as a student, I made the game in two sleepless nights (I remember it was right after the Poznan Game Arena event, so I was really into gamedev). Overall, it was a cool marketing move, the game was available for some time and then removed, but...

In 2022 someone put his efforts and left a comment on my blog about the same topic.

Apparently someone has seen a video of Michael MJD (retro YouTuber) who made a video and a lot of people would like the game I made to come back in some form.

I also found a Reddit thread where someone couldn't access the game.

Luckily I had a copy of the game codebase and because it was developed in Unity, it was super easy to create a WebGL version that is now available on my blog.

Hey Microsoft!

I have tried to contact Microsoft about this topic numerous times, unfortunately with no success. Because of endlessly hitting the wall while trying to get the permission, I decided to publish the game myself on my blog for the community to enjoy.
