This became the moodboard for the game.
As can be seen on these pictures the game will be played in 3rd person
By now i had also decided i wanted to make the game for the ps vita due to the nature of the game.The reason for choosing the ps vita over PS3 was the fact it's a handheld and can be played everywhere. I also like the way the ps vita can be controlled ( touchpad on the back motion sensors etc) and considering the ps vita has a huge upgrade from the old ps the technical specs aren't too bad neither.
PS Vita spec's:
- CPU: ARM(R) Cortex(TM)-A9 core (4 core)
- GPU: SGX543MP4+
- External Dimensions: Approx. 182.0 x 18.6 x 83.5mm (width x height x depth) (tentative, excludes largest projection)
- Screen: 5 inches (16:9), 960 x 544, Approx. 16 million colors, OLED (Touch screen) Multi touch screen (capacitive type)
- Main memory: 512MB
- VRAM: 128MB
- wireless / Bluetooth
As i was walking home from doing some shopping i was looking at people and got inspired by 2 guys walking in front of me unfortunately i didn't had my camera along . One of the guys was really skinny with a jacket on and the other was quite big and tall wearing a hoody and cap busy with his bluetooth headset. The idea got stuck and i really liked the idea of changing them around into main characters so i started looking around seeing how they could fit in getting myself inspired by characters like:
Up here are: Abe from abes odysey. I really like the originality of the characters they have created in abe and would like to somehow make mine as original. Jack and daxter, seemed like a good choice for a duo main character example and the simplicity and timon and pumba as they seem to fit really well together and the style of humor they have. Combining these characters with the original idea i had i started sketching.
