Happy New Year everyone!
We’ve started the first season of 2015 with our best mood, things are going great, and after a few minutes remembering where we left off before the holiday, the team was hard at work.
It’s always so enjoyable when a team sees their game starting to grow, people bringing great ideas to fruition… We’re polishing off a level and starting work on another level, which is very important to us, because we hope to be able to use it for our promotional video. The script is written, the rough storyboard is drawn, and now the basic tridimensional scene is laid out. We’re discussing details, such as “should you have an elephant painted on your couch’s pillows?”, “is purple a color our characters appreciate?”, “why would anyone ever want an infinite mirror as their floor?” or “are girls in the far future likely to live in a clean room or a messy place?”.
If you have anything to bring to the table on these important and critical questions, don’t hesitate to chime in. Also, is a pig form factor a nice idea for a robotic, moody alarm-clock?
In any case, we want to show the game’s characters in their daily life. What do they like? What do they dream of? What annoyances do they have to put up with in their quest to subjugate and dominate the universe with their armies of evil minions (no, sorry… wrong game… ) ah yes, in their quest to go through to the next work day with minimal mental trauma? There will be supercomputers, lasers, nuclear reactors, rockstars and bacon. Maybe even superheroes, space operas and ground-breaking science!
We hope you’ll be as excited as we are when you see the final result. For now, we’re going to work and refine, polish and shine, until it is perfect (or at least, until our favorite accountants warn us we’ve grossly overrun our polishing budget).
