|I remade this on iPad using Sketch Club|
and I hope you like the video process :
I am a guitarist, songwriter, also play keyboards and things.. I also love drawings, specifically characters in the style of semi realistic anime/manga. I am currently developing a game for mobile devices with my drawing on it. Windows and Macs demo game is available on the Journal link bellow |
Also I am starting a donation pool bellow
Well basically in 2012 I made an instrumental music album, with undefined genre lol well, its rock, jazz and ethnic, and at that time I did not think about making games at all. Its available on CDbaby, iTunes and Amazon.
Then I decided to create a manga / anime style comic, which at that time, my drawing skills are . . . not so good, just beginning to learn about it "slowly". The reason is because the music I created are mostly "fantasy" like, at least that is what my friends call it. And the song titles are kinda like "chapters". So here is what I made at that time.
After a while I get tired, although I have a lot supportive friends, I needed time to do day jobs, work etc, so eventually no time at all to finish the manga.
When I learned about programming and unity (my day job is a web developer and musician), I got this idea to create the Hokamlo game, but nothing too advanced or complicated, since I am doing everything alone .
I started by experimenting with animations and programming the character, to move, then started to add rooms, backgrounds and music. And now there it is a fully working downloadable demo (PC/Mac & Android). But.. yes this work needs time too, might be even more time than a manga. For now, I will probably only do smaller scale updates, but if my indiegogo campaign is successful, it will be a whole new chapter for this game to move on, I can hire a programmer and I will focus on my drawings and game artwork along with animations.
The story? well generally in this game, the story is about a group of advanced civilization, who regularly visit a less advanced planet and poses them selves as gods and goddesses, to guide and help with their development. Some of them visit "physically" as a god or goddesses, but some of them who are really special, are able to be "born" as one of the people of the less advanced planet, kinda like an avatar. These "gods" who are born with them, does not have any recollection or memory of their previous life, in a way similar to us, as we do not remember who we are or what we are in a life time before this time.
Hokamlo, the main character of the story is not on this game, however his "original form" is. His mission is to interact and help build society from within it self (similar to Jesus, Krishna, Buddha concept). On the way to the planet,... something wrong happened . The story also mostly has "drama" feel, as there are complicated relationships between the gods which makes things worst.
As for the "enemy" I have not drawn any concept yet, but I will . Please note that all of the work that I have done is copyrighted by me, I do not take them from anyone else, all drawings & music are created by me.
and . . . for closing the post, here are some of the high res art work which is present on the game and will be in the future . . . again if I am successful in finding donators lol. enjoy
