So. I know some of you out there have been wondering about what the hell i´m doin. And why that chum Niklas Åkerblads blog is never bloody updated! Well, there is a reason for that matter. And that reason lies in what this little movie right here will shine light on.
Me and that, nowadays very famous, dude Erik Svedäng planned to, just for kicks and all that, try and make a little game together on the Iphone. To see how we would function in a work relation situation together since we are such good friends (eventhough Erik still is a bit afraid of hugging me)! As always with game-making this “little” project got dragged out timewise since we grew really fond of our little source of attention.
Its a game, as stated before, for the little contraption called Iphone wich is so frickin popular nowadays, despite its inability to sustain a decent battery consumption.
I made the art (its all done in watercolor!) for this thing and the music as well as the sound-FX. Erik took care of programming and game design but the overall concept is something we both worked together on. I shall quote Eriks words when explaining what the game is about since my own seem inadequate for this particular task: “In short the game is about exploring space to find art, while at the same time learning how to fly around in a graceful way. There isn’t any scoring system or way to lose, instead it’s all about self improvement and judging your own performance. I hope you will find it as much fun as we do!”
So do I! Now, enjoy (or shall I say bask in the glory of!) the little trailer for our game KOMETEN.
I shall now, get back to painting.
Oh, and the games release date is not set yet, though it will be in the next month or so! Dont worry. I´ll keep you all posted.
