Seeing the announcement and new trailer of The Last Guardian made me so happy that I wanted to create my own version of the two endearing characters.
So here is my homage to a guardian and its friend.
Recently, I asked my talented friend Iwein Reimerink to animate some of my characters. We’ve worked together before on the iPad games Nott Won’t Sleep and Nott’s Flying Friends, and he’s great at bringing characters to life! Iwein animated my vector characters in After Effects, and then turned them into PNG sequences. I edited these sequences in Photoshop and created animated gifs.
Together with developer Aran Koning I created a jam game for Ludum Dare #31. The theme was “Entire Game on One Screen”. The game is about a Manatee who’s in love with an Aardvark. Here you can download the result!

I’m currently working on Glitchnap’s new game Sentree, together with 3D artist Erwin Kho and sound designer Martin Kvale. I’m creating the concept art, while Erwin turns it into 3D low poly art for the game. I’ll be posting more sketches and art soon via Twitter and my website, but here are some first images :)

I participated in Super Game Jam last May together with the awesome Tom Francis who made Gunpoint and is now working on Heat Signature. It was a very fun and unforgettable experience! In 48 hours we created SimAntics, a two-player competitive anteater simulator.
Super Game Jam is a documentary series about making video games in 48 hours by filmmakers Bram Ruiter and Daniel Oliveira Carneiro and is published by Devolver Digital. The final episode featuring Tom and me is now available on Steam together with the first four episodes and games. You can watch the trailer here! And here you can read Tom’s postmortem.
