The game has thus far been actively developed for 2 months by a team of 3, third year students from the University of Northampton. Originally the game was built with 5 individuals who all attended a Game Jam named Brains Eden. At this event, the team was given 48 hours to develop a game based on the theme of 'Give and Take' and the result of that was Mechanic Panic. After this event, 2 of the students who had attended Brians Eden wanted to continue working on the game however needed help working on it, so they enlisted the help of another student. The game will continued to be worked on in the aims of completing it, bringing it to a stage of getting it published and released to the public.
