Chinese Android Market

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.

Project Red

mockupingamerender

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.

More Painting

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. 🙂
