This area was the first one I painted for the project and with this one I had complete creative freedom and wasn't tied to anything existing.
I decided to go with a bright fullmoon night, you are in the outskirts of the forest, surrounded by massive old trees, while in the background you get a sense of the deeper woods.
This game was created by Wayforward Technologies for Universal Studios.
I worked on it as freelance bg artist throughout 2017, it got released on 24.10.2017
everything I show off was painted by me, I will upload more in the coming days/weeks.
you can buy the game here:
Since when is a licensed movie game this much better than the movie itself? :)
Im playing this now and having a good time. Excellent work on the artwork! All of the backgrounds really works well. I really like the moonlit pine trees here
A big part of the team just was excited to work on a game of this type, the IP lend itself well for the setting and Wayforward has a lot of experience with metroidvania type games.
It's a shame how hard the movie bombed - if the movie would have been better, the game probably also would have sold much better.
Thanks. Glad you like the artwork.
I like wayforward. Noticed them from realizing yacht club games team used to work there and then I played Shantae and thr pirates curse and wanted to play more of their stuff. Seems a fun pöace to work with the amount of fun platformers they get out!
The movie really would have needed better chemistry between lead actors. I love Rachel Weisz and Brendan Fraser in the first two movies. Great stuff. Tom Cruise isnt quite the same goofball.
Have gotten a fair bit in the game now and its good fun. Nice pixel art throughout!
Thanks a lot for everything Matej and keep up your awesome news vids.
