Development of Ctrl Alt Ego began back in 2015 by a team of two whole part-time veteran developers calling themselves GingerCrab. GingerCrab have previously developed and published a few small low-key mobile games (http://www.gingercrab.com/games.html).
Ctrl Alt Ego was to be GingerCrab's passion project. For the first year or two of development it wasn't actually all that clear what kind of game it was going to be - different systems were played around with to discover how they might interact and overlap.
During 2019 the realisation set in that the project had become too big to complete by two people with different visions for the game. When one of the developers quit their job to devote full attention to the game, a parting of ways became inevitable.
Since then, the remaining one whole developer (now MindThunk) has in ever decreasing circles been extending and iterating the game to bring it closer and closer to at least one of the competing visions.
A demo was released on Steam in Nov 2021, and the FULL game launched 22 July 2022.
