I don’t know if anyone remembers, but around 2009 I got a few fellow geeks together and entered the Microsoft Imagine Cup.
At the time we kinda “borrowed” assets from Graal which fit in with the theme of the game.
Well, for the second version, we did all the art ourselves
What do you rekon of the style? I would love to get some feedback.
What I think has worked really nicely is the fact that we could draw the pictures on paper and scan everything in. This art has been done 100% by coders using a 99p colouring pencil set. Could we not use a similar thing with our own Graal client (if we ever get one developed ;))?
We have put an early version of the project on kickstarter to get some initial feedback (mostly to see if the communities around open-source operating systems would be interested).
We also have some cool videos of the game in action there.
In the 3rd video on the kickstarter page, we demo a few of our tools. One of them is quite similar to the gani editor and the other is effectively the map editor. We plan to get these tools cleaned up (and most likely open-sourced) so perhaps with small modifications they could be useful for an open graal client.
(Don’t feel pressured to pledge lol. But certainly feel free to spread the link to your friends if they want more games on Linux / BSD!)
