Encased Kickstarter Update #6: The Team
In this update, we would like to talk in detail about the people who are working on Encased. We will not list the games that we’ve worked on - it is at the end of our campaign page. Today we are going to share some funny and interesting facts about us.
The tower office
The Dark Crystal Games office is located… in a tower, “growing” out of the roof of an old soviet recreation center. Here we have a spiral staircase, an excellent view from the balcony and f**king cold during winter time.
To record the character animation properly, our specialist makes weapon dummies out of the paper towels’ liners.
The Art Director has always wanted a post-apocalyptic game
The lead artist of Dark Crystal Games tried to create a post-apocalyptic RPG Project Serenity almost on his own.
27 years of hardcore gaming
One of our leads is playing video games since he was three. His first game platform was a Spectrum-clone named “Delta”.
Pathological love for Fallout
We have 2.4 Fallout playthroughs per single team member and 3.16 playthroughs of Fallout 2 also. All this counting those few employees who haven’t played the first games of the series.
Vault Boy tattoos
The ribs of our modelling artist are covered with the tattoo of Fallout series mascot.
Writer’s black cats
Our lead writes loves cats. There was a time, when three cats were living in his house, all of them completely black. The current cat, by the way, is also black.
Our senior writer trained as a computer animator but has never worked in that field.
T-shirt of a fan
Our leading technical designer wears a shabby T-shirt with the Larian Studios logo. Misses those times, probably.
Our lead programmer writes verses about coding, yep. He even posts them to the internets.
Dark Crystal Worldwide
The company's office is located in St. Petersburg. And remote employees work from Moscow, Chelyabinsk, Vladivostok, Kaliningrad. The additional experts, invited to participate in the game development, are from Ireland and USA.
Project funding info: $45,671 pledged by 1,249 backers. Thank you guys, you ROCK!
