She wants to prove her worth to the tribe, he wants to finally leave his prison and break free again. But it appears they are as different as day and night. The unlike duo has to work together to reach their goals to finish the trial of Quetzal and face the wicked god. Join the fantastic adventure of the puzzle shooter Elemates and accompany the journey of Xol and Mayha, as they become friends and partners on their difficult quest.

About Elemates' Origins

Since 2011 the University of Applied Sciences Mittweida has been offering the degree course Media Informatics and Interactive Entertainment  and has been educating creative media and computer scientists ever since. The goals and content of this bachelor degree course are shaped by the current job profile of the modern media informatics in the Web 2.0 environment. The study program aims to train graduates in both the disciplines of media technology and media management on the one hand, and the computer science core disciplines on the other hand on an interdisciplinary basis.

During our fifth semester all the media informatics students of the 2015 matrikel took part in developing our very own video game within a development team of 79 students. Following the beta, our very own games conference held at university, we are especially proud to present our final project of four month's work to the public. We'd like to thank our diligent teamleads, our great project teams, our helping hands, friends, family and everyone else who has given us their patience, strength and trust for the last four months. We are proud of our Elemates and hope you'll have fun playing it.

Hey! The comments are open! ^_^ So, honestly when I sat down for the first time with this I was not expecting such a huge game, nor the huge team that I've gotten to get to know over the last few days. Admittedly, the game does have some issues here and there, but the fact that all this came together as the result of a creative effort of nearly 80 people working together over the course of a semester is amazing in and of itself. The first two episodes are below and the third will be out shortly. Or, if you're reading this in the future, it's already out and the link is below!


This is VERY late, but again, THANK YOU so very much for playing our game and uploading the videos to your channel, CoalFire! Your feedback is infinitely appreciated and has been well received among all of us. :)
If we ever get to work on this project again in an effort to polish a bit more, we will be looking to your videos for guidance!
