Game Idea

2 min read

Some of you know I suggested to make a little point and click adventure as my next Patreon project. I started with ideas for a game a few years ago. This month I refined them.

Summery of my thoughts: What makes my game awesome or unique? Beautiful art of course ;) A lovely story Adorable characters Educational quests (Example: you need to make glass, you learn what the ingredients are) and little puzzles Story and Goals: There is: a dragon with a huge heart a lost dog a fantastic fantasy World with cracks and a falling shadow.

You play a young female dragon. She should learn to hunt and kill, but she don’t want to kill. Because of that her father or teacher leave her alone on an island. On the other side there is the dog of an artist. (To make things easy my dog and me ;)) The male Dog sees a black shadow creature witch runs close my pictures. He runs after it but crash into the pictures. The digital tablet cracks, the watercolor painting tears. And the dog disappears trough the paintings in the fantasy world to the dragons. He has luck the young dragon don’t want to eat him. She will help him to go home. But through the cracks in the pictures magical stones were broken which protected the world and the island's dormant volcano is about to wake up. In Addition there is a mysterious black shadow falling over the world and manipulates the creatures on the island. The dog will help you and you can play him too. Together you put everything back in order. ^^ Characters: Dragon: happy and positiv can't kill helpful feels bad because of criticism that she can't catch and kill her own food, over time her self-esteem increases Dog: questions everything eloquent over reacting afraid of the new world, becomes braver over time Artstyle: To reinforce the impression of being in a painted fantasy world, I would use different art styles or techniques for different areas of the world. For example surrealistic digital with textures, watercolor, colored pencil, digital painted with brushstrokes. Similar games to which I orient myself: Deponia (I like the story telling, and fun) Myst (I like the puzzles) Feedback: What do you think? Do you thing different art styles are interesting or to much? Do you like the story and characters?

After some of you have asked me if I have Patreon I thought a lot about it.

Art is my main source of income. I paint commissions, but already a little regular income can bring much more stability to life.

I also see it as a chance to connect more with the community. I am eager to share paintings, ideas and techniques with the people who support me. I am looking forward to discover what you like and improve myself.

Let's create new artworks together!

It means the world to me to welcome you on my Patreon.

I'm truly speechless. All the congratulations and gifts you made for me yesterday, truly made my birthday something special this year.

I was completely unaware that so many people know me through my art and care to write something nice.
I just wanted to say how thankful I am to every one of you. I love this community <3

Stay as awesome as you are and have a nice day. :)

A big thank you to everyone who supports me. It means a lot. :)

Since there are still 10 days left and some of you asked me about payment alternatives, I created a pre-order option on my website in addition to the Kickstarter project.
This pre-order includes the same conditions as the funding project and will also contribute to the stretch goals, which will be included when unlocked.

You can find the pre-order here:
