Hi, I'm Martin Nerurkar.
I love games.
At the tender age of six I was already designing board games and trying to build video games on our C64. My passion for interactive entertainment has only grown since.
I love to create.
When I wasn't playing, I was busy building something; Whether by writing, sketching or making music. I'm driven by creative expression, no matter the medium or field.
I love people.
I take great pleasure in making new friends and collaborating with them. The exchange of views and knowledge inspires me tremendously. That's why I talk a lot.
Welcome, enjoy and feel free to get in touch. - Martin
Burning Roads is a card-based roguelike set in a post-apocalyptic world. The game is planned for release in early 2018 for PC.
You lead an exodus across the hostile planet Soma, looking for the Crypt, a vault promising safety and lost technology. To protect your followers you need to make the right decisions and fight using a card-based combat system.
