History

Cannon Brawl was originally a tiny prototype which would become Cannon Brawl. Pete Angstadt entered it into the first Activision Independent Games Competition, fedexing the entry overnight just a few days before the deadline. Months and months later the results were announced and it took first place! Former Maxis partners in crime, Pete and Theresa quit their jobs to work full time on Cannon Brawl. They've been jamming on this game since July 2011 to make Cannon Brawl what it is today!
