Looking for team members for Sandra and Woo adventure!

Test of Chroniken von Coldramar in PC Action 12/2011

Several weeks ago, the developer studio Feline Fuelled Games started the development of a Sandra and Woo adventure! The mods that were developed by Feline Fuelled Games for Neverwinter Nights 2 and Dragon Age: Origins regularly received positive reviews in the German video game press (see picture on the right). Of course I will also support the team during the development process of the classical point-&-click adventure. It is planned to publish a German and an English version of the game with a full voice-over.

Feline Fuelled Games is still looking for additional team members, especially artists! That means we are looking for people with (semi-)advanced skills in one of the following fields:

  • Creation of 3D models
  • Drawing of background images, objects and/or textures
  • 3D animation or 2D animation

Note that all current team members of Feline Fuelled Games are from German speaking countries so that all internal forum threads are written in German. However, you will be given all necessary instructions to do your work and other important pieces of information in English. Of course you will also be able to give your opinion on important topics like any other team member. We also need good translators and voice artists for the English version. If you’re interested in joining our team, please write an e-mail to the lead developer Milena.

Harvey's New Eyes

Harvey's New Eyes

The adventure will be developed using the easy-to-use, but also somewhat limited, Visionaire Adventure Game Engine which was also used for the adventures Harvey’s New Eyes (see picture on the right) and Deponia by Daedalic Entertainment. Like Feline Fuelled Games’ last mod, Chroniken von Coldramar, the game will feature the work of professional musicians and German voice artists.

We want to distribute the adventure commercially if the quality is sufficient to justify that. If revenue (past the expenses) is generated this way, all team members will receive a share of the revenues with respect to their contribution to the game.

The project is still in its early planning phase, but is making solid progress so far. If you want to join our team, you should be reliable and be available regularly during the development time of around two years (depending on your field of work).


Artwork: The Empress of Russia

Manusia-no-31: The Empress of Russia

As part of our feature “commissioned artwork of our characters drawn by other talented artists”, the Indonesian artist Sia (Manusia-no-31) drew the picture you can see above. It is titled “The Empress of Russia”. As her alter ego, the Empress of Northia, Sandra is sitting on the throne of the Winter Palace which is part of the Hermitage complex in St. Petersburg.

Supporters can download the image in its original size (2961 x 4966) and as a wallpaper on the special page for donators.

This will be the last commissioned picture of Sandra and Woo characters for some time. I need to think about new subjects that are worth to be drawn in color first. During the last months, 18 drawings have been published on our website. I want to thank all artists for their great work.


Artwork: Fiery Love

Serathus: Fiery Love

As part of our feature “commissioned artwork of our characters drawn by other talented artists”, the Philippine artist Jericho (Serathus) drew the picture you can see above. It is titled “Fiery Love” and dedicated to all fans of the computer role playing game Planescape: Torment from Black Isle which is known for its innovative story and great characters. Larisa sure knows how to terrify evil firemages.

Supporters can download the image in its original size (3200 x 2000) and as a wallpaper on the special page for donators.

I’m open for suggestions for subjects that you’d like to see drawn in color. A new picture will be posted every second Saturday.


Artwork: Chess Master

Yuki Makimachi: Chess Master

As part of our feature “commissioned artwork of our characters drawn by other talented artists”, the Indonesian artist Dewitri Virika (Yuki Makimachi) drew the picture you can see above. It is titled “Chess Master”. I’m sure the chess players among our readers appreciate it the most.

Supporters can download the image in its original size (1753 x 2222) and as a wallpaper on the special page for donators.

I’m open for suggestions for subjects that you’d like to see drawn in color. A new picture will be posted every second Saturday.

In other news, I’m now a member of the German Pirate Party. I don’t agree on some of their political goals, but they are currently the only political party that credibly fights for citizens’ rights and against censorship. In September 2011, they achieved a spectacular result in the Berlin state election with 8.9% of the popular vote.
