Hi folks, here we are again after the beautiful experience of Bootzilla the Game with a new project for a mobile game. Take a look. 😉
All started with an image: a man… running. 🙂
Yes, we were talking about a running game for a while, so now we decided is time to try.
Why a running game? Because we like’em, they can be very fun (if well designed) and, above all, relatively easy to produce (we’re not an “AAA games kind of” Software House… yet. :-D).
The game genre was decided, then. Now the real challenge: what kind of style, and character, we had to choose?
The obvious answer seemed to be: cartoon – fluffy – chubby – furry – fantasy – candy – childy – animals with human behaviours… But. Meh. 😐
Mighty Adventure (PixelTrap)
Maybe too obvious. 🙂
Yes, we like cartoons, and yes, we think mobile games need to be more “easy” to watch and understand, but… Is it possible to try something similar but… Different?
Candy Crush Saga (King Digital Entertainment)
We thought to start with the basic, and see what happened. So, a man… Who runs. Basically… a running man… Running man… Yes! That’s it!
Only one man can save us, as he used to do when we were children. 🙂
The Running Man – OST (Tristar Pictures)
Well, we must confess, half of us was born in times when heroes in TV and Movies were super steroid pumped machos with big cigars and flamethrowers and… We miss them!
Yes, we still can have their “Rest Home” version (*coff! coff! Expendables *coff!), but… We prefer to remind them younger and… Botox-free! 😀
So, instead of chubby rabbits or furry pandas… A Man, with capitol “M”! 🙂
Here you find some preliminary sketches made by our talented artists of… Ben.
We think this is the perfect name for a Man who runs: a Running Ben. 😉

More details soon… Stay tuned! 😉
