“The idea behind this engine was to be able to render massive amount of moving particles. So this meant some restrictions. For example it only renders full buffers, it renders triangles instead of quads and all particles share some properties.
All this stuff can be find from GitHub.”
Darkness, humor, animation - Tsioque, a new adventure game has just lauched on Kickstarter
Creators of critically acclaimed Tormentum, Polish OhNoo Studio, joined forces with award-winning animation filmmaker Alek Wasilewski (Lucky Day Forever) to create a frame-by-frame animated point & click adventure game in a dark but humorous fairytale setting.
TSIOQUE is a playfully dark 2d point & click adventure game inspired by such classics as Day of the Tentacle, Dragon’s Lair or Ron Gilbert’s Pajama Sam series. The game is being created with the use of meticulous frame-by-frame animation, where each second of gameplay requires multiple frames to be drawn by hand from scratch. By combining the hand-drawn 2d animation and a music system designed to dynamically follow the player’s actions, the developers hope to create a unique experience [merging boundaries] between adventure game and animated film.
The developers hope to raise $35,000. Most of this money will go to creating more frame-by-frame animation, which is the most labor-consuming part of the project. During the next 44 days, the campaign can be followed and supported on its official Kickstarter page. It’s worth mentioning that many interesting rewards wait for those who decide to support the project. The title will be available for PCs and is to premiere next year.
