Studio Waterzooi are onre of the finalists in the Indie Showcase with their game Please, Touch The Artwork.
Please, Touch The Artwork bundles a set of calm, compelling artsy puzzle games based on real abstract paintings. It answers the question: What happens if we actually DO touch the artwork? It aims to be aesthetic, relaxing, inspiring & educational.
Season 1 contains 3 games, each based on a different existing Mondrian painting.
The first game tells the origin story of pure abstract art. Youâ€™ll have to add colors and lines to the canvas to reproduce a series of paintings.
The second game tells the story of Boogie & Woogie, two squares who just want to be together, but a rapidly growing world is making this harder and harder. You'll have to help Woogie reach Boogie by figuring out how the obstacles influence Woogie's path.
In the third game youâ€™ll move to the big city, only to be overwhelmed with mixed emotions. From joy and excitement to being homesick and missing your friends and family. Will you be able to find your way out of the maze that is New York City?
Touch the untouchable and discover the hidden stories behind these artworks.
I’ve been to every single Develop in the last 12 years. One thing you get here is networking - you will meet the most amazing individuals in the video games industry.
Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
Develop is a really great way to network, it’s also great for going to talks and finding that little tip that you didn’t know before and thinking – oh I’ll bring that back to the team!
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
Develop is the must-attend event for the games industry in the UK. It’s where we all come together and learn from each other. It’s the best way into the industry and it’s the best place to learn from your colleagues.
Develop:Brighton is especially unique - it’s by the seaside and there’s a lovely relaxed tone that goes with that.The talks are cool, the networking is cool and having the opportunity to catch up with people – that’s always the excitement for me!
There really is a huge mix of people at Develop - loads of peers that you can learn from and the perfect blend of every element of game development as well.
Develop is important – the networking is very important. And go to talks they’re inspiring and get your creative juices flowing, they can make you think and you’ll learn how other people do things.
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.
