Sproggiwood Officially Released!

capsule_main
So, the day is finally here! It feels like this project has been going on forever, and we have had more than one instance of undue optimism about the release schedule, but today is officially the release day!

Sproggiwood is an independent game project between myself (art) and Jason Grinblat (design and writing) and Brian Bucklew (programming) of Freeholdgames. It’s an easily accessible but strategically challenging roguelike with permanent upgrades and unlocks via town. And a funny story!

You can find Sproggiwood on Steam and The Humble Store. The game supports pc, linux and mac, the Steamplay and has steam trading cards. The steam badges you can earn are super cute, even if I say so myself! Actually I really want them all myself, but feel a bit ridiculous collecting cards just to get my own art to show up on my profile.

As this is the first independent game release I’ve been involved in I finally got to experience first hand how much time it takes to do all the stuff that isn’t making the game. So to honor that, here’s some non-Photoshop doctored screenshots that still took a a way too long time to take. I totally skipped the editing because I just didn’t have two days to spend doctoring them. And I hate doing it. Freedom!

All support is appreciated and spreading the word would help us out a lot too!

Body Worlds

memberimage

Body Worlds is an amazing exhibition where you can goggle at bodies of dead individuals, preserved for science. They are displayed in numerous physical activities, often with different muscle groups and bones seperated to really show you the anatomy at work within the body. Basically a dream come true anatomy workshop.

I managed to catch the exhibit on the very last day it was open in Finland, after planning to go see it for the whole summer. A wasn’t the only one late to the feast, there was a 2 hour queue into the exhibit! No I’m not exaggerating at all, the queue started way outside the building, and snaked it’s way through all the regular exhbits before you finally got into the body worlds.

As usual, the experience of seeing anatomy and muscles in 3d and being able to walk around them was from a completely different world than reading textbooks, even good ones. I tried to soak up as much anatomy as I could, and really pay attention to parts I find hard to understand  (pelvis bone, I hate you). I wish I could have spend weeks doing studies from the bodies, but still I think I got a great deal out of the exhibition.

It seems the exhibition has now moved on to New York, go check it out if you are in the neighbourhood!
