Davey Jones Lost Souls is a brand new take at the tossing genre, with added real time action thrown in. It is a project currently in development with Ewan Brock, a talented illustrator eager to expand his portfolio of work in the games industry. The artwork is beautiful, and to show off how it was made here is a behind the scenes video of Ewan in action:
The game features highly customisable characters, that can be adjusted to suit the players requirements and style of play. Ewan was able to create “puppet animations” that I can fill with the upgrades chosen by the player. These puppet animations are created in the same way as any other animation, however once the animation is complete the graphics are removed so that they can be customised. The technique is quite different to what some people are used to and the technique can be quite tricky to implement at times. However what it means is that we can create a very large amount of items for players to enjoy and use. We can also add plenty more once the game is out so keep your eyes peeled for extra content!
The pirate theme is such a fun genre to create a game in. The sights and sounds of the pirate genre creates so many fun opportunities when designing a game. We have had a lot of fun creating fun items for players to interact with, and hidden goodies for players to unlock and enjoy. Throughout the game you will be treated to some hilariously bad humour, that is in no way funny at all. But we hope you may smile at our pathetic attempt at wit.
The upgrades in the game are built in a way that allow us to add more content to the game during its lifespan, creating much more hours of fun for players. We hope players will enjoy the game, and we look forward to releasing it. Im not going to put a date on when that will be, but if you like the look and sound of Davey Jones: Lost Souls then let us know!
