Nonlinear Ideas Inc. is an indie software development studio located near Dallas, Texas.  

Our passion is creating prototypes for games.  Making games is easy.  Making games well is seriously hard fun.


A prototype of one of our games, Star Crossing, is below.  Star Crossing is a 2-D Physics Based Space Shooter written for young children.  Designed as a two player, networked game, players work as either "friends" or "foes" to get the highest score.

On this level, the goal was to collect as many rocks as possible.   Miners will automatically haul rocks to the collection station.  Hungry space-snakes attack anything that looks tasty (including the junk in the piles at the left) and then return to their nest to sleep off lunch.
