Ratloop figured out an extremely cool way of designing and creating your avatars and textures for the avatar, as well as puzzles and leveldesigns, in a charming, but also likely technically overdriven way at thier game Mightier. In order to get your avatar, you print out a sheet of paper, fill it with the texture, the body, the physiognomy. You do it by drawing face, foods, legs, skin with a bold pen simply on the paper. It is easy as that. After feeding your creation into a special scanning system (you can use a webcam), it magically turns into a virtual avatar. The same princible applies for creating platforms, levels and landscapes, simply by drawing lines on paper.

The game was submitted for the Independent Games Festival Award 2009 and can be downloaded on their website. Someone just handout the award for them.

  1. […] game was made by Ratloop, who also are responsible for Mightier. It seems to me, that really Ratloop got distinct out-of-the-ordinary thinking abilities. Thank you […]
