History

Skyhook was started in April 2014 by Wase Qazi who intended on finishing the game as part of the One Game A Month challenge. Over a year later, Skyhook is a full featured game out now on Steam Early Access and looking to release on consoles in early 2016. The game's unique premise of fighting against your friends using grappling hooks has gone on to be a hit at indie game events around the East Coast, such as IndieCade East, SuperSmashCon, and BostonFIG. After working on the game part time for over a year, Wase Qazi is now full time on the game. Skyhook left Early Access for full release on Steam on May 17th 2016.
