In these heady days of computer-generated photos, results, and animation, it may be one thing of a consolation to see some old-fashioned methods nonetheless being put to make use of. Watching the footage from upcoming co-op journey platformer Vokabulantis seems like being transported again to the times (OK, it actually wasn’t that way back) when stop-motion animation was commonly used for movies and TV exhibits.
And Vokabulantis seems incredible, like an actual animated movie. That is as a result of the environments are all hand-crafted and the characters, even those you management, are all stop-motion animated by hand. It is being developed by Kong Orange, developer of Felix the Reaper, and Danish animation studio Wired Fly Animations.
The sport stars Karla and Kurt, who’re about to inform one another their emotions for each other when all of the sudden they discover themselves trapped on the earth of Vokabulantis, unable to talk (which explains why the character haven’t got mouths). They will must work collectively to repair no matter has gone fallacious on this unusual and mysterious world.
“Mainly it is a big journey set in that one cut up second the place you resolve to inform one other individual that you simply type of like them,” says sport chief Esben Kjær Ravn of Kong Orange. “That you simply’re into them. And possibly hope that they are going to maintain your hand in return.”
That is an extremely candy sentiment, and I can not overstate how good Vokabulantis seems. We’ll have to attend some time to see the way it performs. Within the meantime, you may see extra movies of it being painstakingly crafted on the official web site.
