Final Vanguard

Fight for survival as you pilot humanity's last push against a dark adversary.

Final Vanguard is a top-down space shooter currently in development by indie developer Heavy Pepper and set for release on iOS and Android devices.

A last ditch effort to reclaim the solar system.

In orbit over the Moon, you scramble to your strike fighter, select your load-out and descend into the thick of battle.

Creating mobile games.

Heavy Pepper is the work of David Tym, a 20 year veteran of the web development space turned indie mobile game developer. Currently producing his first game, Final Vanguard, David utilizes Unity, Blender and Photoshop as the primary tools of the trade. Production is forged on a laptop during a daily commute to Toronto, Canada – giving new meaning to mobile games both in development and play.
