Skeleton Key (Marmelade)

Skeleton Key is an addictive and unique puzzle game in which you shift keys around the board unlocking treasure chests. It's available here:

You can see video, screenshots, and more details at:

This version, which is what's in the Android Market, was programmed in C++ using the Airplay SDK, which has since been renamed to the Marmalade SDK:

It was made using Airplay SDK 4.2, and it probably won't compile out-of-the box in the latest version of Marmalade. If anyone wants to get it to run using the newest Marmalade, patches are welcome.

Insurgent Games

Insurgent Games was founded in 2009 by Micah Lee and Crystal Mayer out of their San Francisco studio apartment. For a couple of years they happily made iPhone and Android games. They quickly realized that unless you’re incredibly lucky, it’s hard to make enough money developing indie mobile games to pay San Francisco rent. So Micah got a full time job and Crystal moved on to other things.

Now, several years later, Micah works for the Electronic Frontier Foundation defending internet users from evil (, and Crystal is a freelance web designer ( But Insurgent Games is dormant.

Since they're not working on the games anymore, they decided to release them to the community. They hope their games will thrive and be reborn as bigger and better things. All of their games are licensed under the GNU General Public License.
