The Chinese Android Market is huge and I will now attempt to release a game in the Chinese region. Right now work has started on changing the needed art assets and slowly translating the text. I will be using Google Translate, possibly the worse idea yet, but budget, time and man power dictate that to be the only viable option. Also it might make for some funny mistakes, for such a small game, I can live with this.
While doing my research I found a recent post stating Chinese officials now require all mobile games to feature only Simplified Chinese, No English at all.
You can follow the progress on this venture here on this website and over on twitter
Code name: Project Red, is side scrolling 2D platformer, with RPG light elements… well maybe. Nothing as yet is set in stone, I am still in the planning, story boarding and concept art stage. The game will be the biggest yet from Blunt Games and will push the GameMaker engine to its limits.
Here is sceenshot of a level currently being developed to test ideas named “The Dark Forest”. No platforms have been confirmed yet, but its safe to say with the graphical level I am attempting to push through game maker, it won’t be on mobile.
Follow me on twitter @Blunt_Games for more updates on Project Red.
Just a quick random concept art dump. There hasn’t been a post for a while, so hopefully this collection of recently created bits of art will fill that void. 🙂

The Banner under which I develop video games “Blunt Games” now has a new logo. It has been 6 years since the last logo was designed and it has been in use ever since. Here is the old logo…
And here is the shiny new one…
I am really liking the new logo, not back for a days work, and by day I mean a full day.. cough 10am to 3pm 🙂
So the summer break has just started and my lovely energetic son is home nearly everyday for 7 weeks. He is always asking about my work, so I thought I would show him the basics. It didn’t last long before he was bored and wanted to play Lego marvel super heroes instead, but hey, here’s hoping this is the start of something else we can share together.
