Would you kindly chart your entry into the games industry and the formation of the studio?
Let’s talk about Rymdresa. What inspired the decision to make the game text based as well as its aesthetic look?
We have for example space journals that present themselves now and then, when you play the game. They contain practical information of how many years you’ve been in space. But they are also poetry -pieces, giving you as a pilot hints about your past present and future. This is the main-narrative in the game, bringing you records of the feelings and thoughts of the lonely space pilot as he travels through space. And they are voiced by Eric Reed.
We work with a very restricted palette, which only contains a few beautiful and carefully picked colors. Less is always more.
We believe in simplicity and we love pixelart. We have created a very minimalistic art style. We believe that artificially created art restrictions, produce a much easier way to create style. A way to keep creativity roam free inside these constrains. This also makes room for the players own thoughts and emotions.
Any similarities to Rymdkapsel and has marketing the game proved problematic (especially internationally)?
What are the challenges of creating a game as a relatively small outfit?
To work together and having an elaborate plan and not to be afraid of expanding the project helps a lot, we have no obligations to anyone when it comes to making games. We can do whatever we want to, and that is a relief. That is the good part of being an indie developer.
