Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir DS
, the first published game I've ever gotten to work on, was released on September 8th! I worked with two other full time artists, two part time artists, and an amazing art lead (Mark Ferrari
) to create backgrounds for this game. Later on in the project I took over as a defacto art lead of sorts, and ended up creating a good amount of the art. I did the lighting and final touches to every background (except for the several that Big Fish's artists made), and ended up creating the art for the dossier and mini games as well. Almost every background was a collaborative effort which ended in me applying final touches. The character portraits, hidden objects, and interface art were mostly not created by me.
So far the game has gotten pretty good reviews
. If you've ever played the PC games, like hidden object puzzles, or silly detective stories full of puns, then you'll probably like it! There's a demo up on the Nintendo Channel on the Wii, and also online at Nintendo's web site.
