The main idea was to create an experience to give visibility to Chilean's north patrimony and the wealth of its flora and fauna, reason why the video game it's star by an Andean Cat, a petite mammal which is an endangered specie, who lives on Chilean Andes. The art behind the dungeons takes inspiration from the natural and cultural diversity of the region, presenting another endangered animals and references to indigenous people.
The project is framed under the Roguelike genre and has a pixel art aesthetic on TopDown 2D format, innovating in this field by presenting puzzle resolution dynamics, something unusual on titles of this genre. Among its features, the chance of "endless" replayability stands out, because it's based on randomly generated dungeons, making every game experience a different one.
Hunter of The Disowned's design and development has been headed by Nathal Dawson and Claudia Páez, led programmer and art director respectively, both has led a small crew consisting of students from careers related to computing. The project begins officially on June 2019, after applying and being selected by the Regional Program for Entrepreneurship Support, hosted by the government institution CORFO, thus gaining the needed funding.
