The Awesome Adventures of Aoi Seeks Funding

Daniel Krohnengold and his creative team is hard at work on a new animated series targeted towards teens and young adults titled “The Awesome Adventures of Aoi.” In order to fund the project, the creators have set up an Indiegogo page and are seeking €11,000 by November 21, 2014, in order to complete the first chapter of the animated program. Funding will go toward the script and storyboard as well as sound effects, animation, voice casting and music lyrics in three languages including: Spanish, English and Japanese.

The Awesome Adventures of Aoi focuses on a young boy named Aoi who witnessed his parents fall sick and die from a sudden, mysterious illness. The main enemy, Yasha, is planning to create a super soldier by kidnapping people, throwing them in cages, and doing all manners of experiments. His first victim is Aoi, who is turned into a creature.

Despicable Me Director Launches IndieGogo Campaign for New Game

Veteran animation director Lionel Gallat, whose previous works include Despicable Me, Flushed Away, and The Lorax, has just launched a new IndieGogo crowdfunding campaign for a new game titled Ghost of a Tale. People who are cautious when donating to a crowdfunding campaign don’t have to worry, as Gallat has already done much of the heavy lifting needed for the project, including designing, modeling, animating, and rendering – all by himself. All he needs right now is some financial support in order to finish the job.

Ghost of a Tale is a third person game that allows gamers to play the role of a little mouse in a dangerous world. Gallat counts Disney’s Robin Hood, the fables of La Fontaine, Redwall, Winnie the Pooh, The Secret of NIMH, The Dark Crystal, the paintings of Alan Lee, John Howe, Paul Bonner and John Bauer as his inspirations.

My goal is to craft a small yet beautiful game with environments that look a bit like movie sets and characters that have a sense of stylization in their design, while retaining a certain simplicity and immediacy as far as gameplay is involved,” he writes on his game’s Indiegogo site. “I know it sounds hockey but I’m really trying to recapture the sense of wonder I felt as a kid when I discovered the games from the ’80s and early ’90s. But with a AAA quality (as far as I’m able) that’s very much up-to-date. You play as a mouse on an adventure set in a medieval world. At the beginning of the game, you get to the Island of Periclave. Now what is the mouse looking for? What happened on the island? Why are there undead rats roaming around? That will be up to you to discover.”
