OUR AIM

We wanted to take the characters, art and mood from our podcast project I EN STAD (IN A TOWN) and make a game out of it. A match two game came to my mind – it’s a simple game that all children know about, it don’t have to be explained, and a good way to display all the beautiful art and use the voices of the two characters The Mayor and his helper, the mouse Pip. We also wanted to use our grammy nominated music in the game – but the ambient instrumental versions of the songs. I wanted it to be carefully designed with an elaborated feel on the very simple mechanics. The Competition is not very impressive – for what I could find. I felt that if I put som love and time in to this project it will turn out fine.

MY ROLE

Besides the art and the music I did everything and I had the luxury of working in my own pace without any strict deadline.

WORKING PROCESS

Being all alone in a project has a lot of flip sides. No need to compromise. No stress. No real deadline. But those three statements can also be your best friend when you need to progress. So, yes – i did miss someone that could debate the choices i made.

Also a deadline that could put an end to an everlasting progress – I have a hard time stop developing. 

At the same time – the more you learn, the more you can create. And I learned a lot. 

Mostly I developed my programming skills and realized how much I enjoy it.

tHE RESULT

”Borgmästaren and Pips Memory” will be released the fall 2021 and are still in production. I’m super satisfied with the result so far. It’s spot on the mood that I EN STAD is all about – low key, jazzy and enjoyable. 

The game will be ad free and cost money to buy – I am going to add some more decks to play and add a music player with more jazzy tunes to make the experience worth the money. The next update will be a version in english.

The song “Vi var trouble” (We were trouble) is a nostalgic trip back to the nighties and a mixture of Anjas and my own troublesome memories. It’s an ambitious zero budget production.
