DERE Vengeance Makes Waves in the Game Industry 

DERE Vengeance, developed by AppSir Games using Buildbox Classic, was released to critical acclaim in the game industry. It was recently featured in the App Store’s Best New Games List in the United States. The game was also awarded the Pocket Gamer Silver Badge Award for a ⅘ rating. It was a huge honor for AppSir Games to receive their first badge award and a major achievement for any indie game developer. 

However, the accolades don’t stop there, this pixelated meta-horror platformer was even featured as TouchArcade Game of the Week!
