Indiana-Jonas & Jasper Oprel
Based in France & The Netherlands
Surmount is a free-flowing, physics-based platforming adventure where you'll experience the joys of mountain climbing. Make your perilous ascent through the various handcrafted and procedurally generated challenges of Mount Om, all the while following a silly story with eccentric folks along the way. Master your own unique style of climbing either alone or with a friend, upgrade and customize your climber to stand a better chance, and maybe just maybe, you'll be the first ever to reach the top!
Surmount is a collaboration between Jasper Oprel (he/him) and Indiana-Jonas (he/they). Jasper codes all the bits and bobs in the game and Jonas drew and modelled everything that you can see in the game. Ryan Yoshikami supplies the music and the audio design is done by Rumsklang. The game has been developed completely remotely from the Netherlands and France. J&J met in an online session of Animal Crossing during the pandemic. Shortly after that they started working on a prototype that grew to become Surmount. They pitched it around and became the first game to receive funding from the Dutch Midgame Fund.
