We just got back from the Nordic Game conference, which was an utter blast! Lots of great people and interesting seminars (which we unfortunately didn't have much time to attend). Huge thanks to the brilliant Nordic Game crew, who made it all happen!
The entire first chapter was proudly on display, for those who wanted to try the game out for themselves. We also edited a new trailer for the conference, which we'll post here shortly. Aside from being better than the first one, it shows some teasing morsels from Chapter 2...
We get a lot of blank stares when we try to explain that we actually build the game by hand out of clay and cardboard, so having this diorama to show people really helped!
If you look carefully, you'll notice that some of the props are slightly out of scale with the others. That's because achieving the level of detail we want on such a small scale requires the fingers of an elf. In this case the Victrola and the desk lamp are built to twice the scale and have to be reduced in Photoshop afterwards.
As we mentioned in an earlier post, this gives them the distinct hand made look we were going for: retaining all the little beautiful imperfections that comes for free when you do something by hand.
Game Reactor feels beyond surreal.
Hopefully some more will crop up as the week progresses. We'll add those as we find them. Drop us a line if you've seen one we haven't.
