In these heady days of computer-generated photos, results, and animation, it may be one thing of a consolation to see some old fashioned strategies nonetheless being put to make use of. Watching the footage from upcoming co-op journey platformer Vokabulantis appears like being transported again to the times (OK, it actually wasn’t that way back) when stop-motion animation was frequently used for movies and TV exhibits.
And Vokabulantis seems implausible, 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 immediately they discover themselves trapped on the earth of Vokabulantis, unable to talk (which explains why the character haven’t got mouths). They’re going to must work collectively to repair no matter has gone improper on this unusual and mysterious world.
“Mainly it is a big journey set in that one break up second the place you resolve to inform one other individual that you just sort of like them,” says sport chief Esben Kjær Ravn of Kong Orange. “That you just’re into them. And perhaps hope that they’ll maintain your hand in return.”
That is an extremely candy sentiment, and I am unable to 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.
