I run Seen in a Dream Studio, which focus on creating great story driven products. i am an author and a developer who have currently written several books and programmed business intelligence and apps for ios and android. i have always liked creating stories. As a child pen and paper roleplaying was one of my favorite things to do. Creating stories is one of my passions and now I want to create a great story for you.
I am an industrial designer who like everything from painting to composing music, I guess a I'm a bit of a "jack of all trades" when it comes to "creative" stuff. Apart from working on this project I am also about to start my own design studio were I'll work as a consultant as well as develop products of my own. I also used play pen and paper roleplaying games, often together with Daniel and some other friends. Daniel uses words, I use shapes and pictures, we both tell stories!
Risks and challenges
The aim of this project is really to create a gamebook/3D game hybrid. Where we are inspired by traditional gamebooks, but using a cartoon style with lot of great and unique 2D-art, narrator-voice and effects. For battles we are shooting for a turn-based strategy game with inspiration from games like xcom. We think this blend will make for a game that is really fun to play and mix great gamebook storytelling with more modern parts. Making the story everything it can be will be a challenge, but we will rise to the cause. We also need to build the product right to be able to support both tablets and more traditional PC/MAC.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
