Group Info

Fledgling game and multimedia production group, focusing on the audio-visual with a dash of interactivity!

Should I be a Member or Watcher?
Members: Members should contribute ideas, concept art, music, writing, anything! The more you contribute, the better for the overall project :)
Watchers: Too busy with life? Just want to see the final product? Or the occasional beta test? Watching will be for you ;D


In order to keep our products the highest quality possible, the group is essentially mainly for the core team members. If I find members who constantly contribute to make our project grow then if things go well, welcome to the official team! :p. Appropriate credit will be given too ^ ^.
While working on my "Hungry Whispers" game project, I wanted to give back to the dA community and focus on developing it past the beta teaser demo to a full version due to the overwhelming positive responses. By creating this group, I aim to expose this project for further testing, feedback and more members.

I hope to not only focus on game development but to also incorporate a range of creative mediums including the use of music/sound, interactivity as well as the visual. All artistic/creative contributions are welcome to help the current project grow!

The original TEAM WASABI members (but not the Counter-Strike group)!







A fellow game and/or multimedia development group? Affiliation is always welcome :)


A lot has happened since our last update and many changes have taken place.

Mainly the project lead had to step back due to life and take a break to focus on other things. In that break, data was reviewed, game design plans were tweaked and project foundations were solidified.

The project has now entered a new era. JDWasabi Studios is now known as Jade-Wasabi Studios, and Hungry Whispers shall live on under that banner.

For those (still) interested in seeing Hungry Whispers become a thing, check out our official social media here:


Lastly, a huge thanks for the support and joining us on this eye opening journey. Here's to kicking ass and making things a reality!

Phew! Now that the craziness of Readcon is over and that everyone's had a little break you're probably wondering what we're currently doing!

Achievement Update!

First up, it is a great honour that one of our first members of Team Wasabi is the featured artist in the 'Pure Nintendo' magazine! Not only that, Hungry Whispers has been mentioned and it's great to see Project Whispers help jump start wonderful opportunities.  Congrats again Lubrian!

Also some of you may / may not know that I have been working with Grimm Bros for just over a year now writing their game soundtrack! A career aspiration that I've been working towards since I was a kid. Now we're attending Gamescom featuring our game Dragon Fin Soup! It's my first gig and boy is it big.  I wouldn't be in this wonderful position if it weren't for the amazing work of the original Team.  I am determined to see this project through because I'm not going to say no to the potential opportunities this project offers ;D.

Calling new members!

Since my time is very limited I am stepping down in the amount of duties I currently do with this project. So if anyone out there reading this is wanting a project to work on for portfolio purposes do get in touch!

Our main areas are:
• Art
• 3D Modelling
• Animation
• Writing
• Music /Sound design
• Programming
• Game design

But that doesn't mean that I'll exclude other areas like film, acting or voice acting.  I found that pulling off a successful collaboration is like gold dust in your portfolio which is a win-win situation if you ask me!

Hit me up or feel free to pass on my details if you know anyone who's interested ^ ^.  
dA = JDWasabi
Twitter = JDWasabi
email = jadepl[at} (replace [at} with @)!

Thanks again for the continued support everyone!

Meanwhile, the team is working on refining some sprites. © :iconninjaninaiii:

Yo! Hello there!

I'm currently abroad but I'll be back on the 6th Oct! Very glad to hear that you're interested in joining the team :D.

Just so that I can get an idea, what's your general experience so far? Extra coders are a big plus for us :thumbsup:
RockerHam Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Erm~~Thanks for accept?
It is this a studio that is gonna make a game? (sry i m a newbie...and i can draw cutscenes or something)
JDWasabi Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes! We're a studio!

We meet online on Skype every week to discuss the project's progress and we use as our developmental forums :).

Everyone is invited to join and use this opportunity to learn from each other over varying levels and gain well as make a kick-ass project :P
RockerHam Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
s-skype?! OAO
so u guys meet each other with webcams??
JDWasabi Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha we use to meet on dA chat until we found that it was easier to voice call.

Nah we just voice call, using webcam gave us lag XD. You don't have to use webcam if you don't want to :)

We're also experimenting with using Google+ since it has greater screen sharing abilities which was needed to discuss the plot flow of some parts of the story and we can watch some of the guys drawing out characters live while we work on character bios over voice call. It's pretty epic!

What do you mean when you say "Puzzle"? do you mean a combined use of items to figure out a situation? or is it more like professor layton? either way i would like to contribute some ideas (not saying their GOOD ideas but...)
