East London based street artist and illustrator Ronzo is looking for your support to get his indie game ‘Derrick the Deathfin’ on to mobile! The game is a fast-paced arcade action sideways scroller which has been set in an aquatic world which Ronzo has made entirely out of paper and card. Ronzo enlisted an army of helpers who together spent hundreds of hours painstakingly folding paper, cutting and gluing to craft Derrick and his underwater home world.
Hookedblog stopped by Ronzo's studio back when he and his team were hard at work assembling and crafting the underwater sea creatures and objects that feature in the game. We were fortunate enough to be allowed to capture some photos of these amazing paper creatures and the little model sets and underwater sceneries they assembled which were filmed and turned into an actual playable game with help from their computer wizards Ten24.
Ronzo then worked with Indie developer Different Cloth and together a truly exciting video game was created. This little Indie title is currently available on Steam and PSN. Derrick is swimming to mobile real soon with your help. Check out the Kickstarter video for the project below.
