Erik Svedang, who developed the award winning PC game Blueberry Garden that is available on the Steam network, has announced his first iPhone and iPod Touch game. Erik teamed up with his friend and artist, Niklas Akerblad, to create a visually stunning game with watercolor graphics.
In their new game, Kometen, you control a cyclops looking comet to fly around space exploring art and eating shapes. The object is to find artwork, while flying around gracefully, or by using a SuperBoost to travel through the map. The artwork is all watercolor drawn and animated by hand, then scanned in with minimal post-processing to create an amazing art style. With no scoring system or way to lose, the game is all about enjoying the experience and judging your own performance and self-improvement.
Erik says, "Exactly when the game will be out is hard to say since Apple has to approve it for the App Store but it shouldnâ€™t take too long". So hopefully we will see this game soon. For now, here is a trailer for Kometen with some gameplay footage towards the end.
