Okay time for a mid-week update! So as you know I have been working on a video game in my time at Oulu Game Lab and on Tuesday 13th May we finally publicly announced the game, which also enables me to show you more of what I have been working on over the coming weeks.
So let me tell you a little about what the game is about. Bonnie The Brave: Space Courier is a colourful 3D action platformer in the vein of Crash Bandicoot combined with the exploration of Metroidvania games. It’s being developed by a team of 7 (including me) people with backgrounds in Media, Engineering, Art and Culture who came together as game development students to create something they love.
Bonnie Brave is a space courier transporting important cargo across the galaxy. During her journey her ship is attacked by pirates eager to get their hands on the Mcguffin, a powerful weapon Bonnie is transporting. Bonnie’s ship is shot down and crashes on a mysterious and abandoned planet, where she will need to fix her ship, keep the Mcguffin away from the pirates, and learn the truth behind the abandoned planet.
We are expecting to release the game in early 2015, but in the mean time if you’re interested to keep up with the project and maybe give us some feedback, then check out the facebook page; https://www.facebook.com/bonniethebrave
