When it comes to the design profession, there's a long and complicated history of "trendy" and "disruptive" design.But a new survey of more than 1,000 designers has found that a lot of the current focus on the latter is actually misguided, and the former is the wrong direction."It's easy to think about design as something that only needs to be used in the context of your brand," says Jason Luscomb...
An old school graphic designer is coming to the rescue of a new generation of motion designers by taking their vision to the cutting edge with an ambitious project that includes a video game.
The video game, called “Mighty No. 9,” is a first-person shooter based on the popular Sega Genesis game that takes place on an artificial planet in the year 20XX.
The game’s developers, Bluehole, are aiming for the widest possible audience and are bringing their design tools and expertise to the project.
Bluehole is the studio behind the popular “Borderlands” video game franchise and a series of popular indie games.
The company also made “Sonic Unleashed” and “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” video games, among others.
“The idea behind ‘Mighty’ was to bring the classic arcade shooter and graphics engine of the Genesis to the modern platform,” said Tomáš Szucz, creative director of Bluehole.
“The result is a breathtaking video game that will bring back a sense of wonder, excitement and nostalgia.”
“We’re very excited to have ‘Mellow’ at our fingertips, and we look forward to creating something special together with Bluehole,” said Sam Kober, CEO of Bluebear Studios, which makes “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” and the “Halo” series.
Bluebear has been producing games for a number of years and has produced a number, including “Borderland” and its sequel “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials,” which are both available on mobile devices.
Szucz says that the team at Bluebear will be working closely with other game developers and game publishers to develop the game’s content.
“We want to be the first to bring ‘Might’ to mobile devices, so we’ll be working with a few of the top game developers in the industry to bring this game to your phone and tablet,” he said.
Szlánty Gómez, a former employee of “Bordercraft” who works for Bluebear, says that “Might” will be a huge step in bringing the classic gaming genre back to the mobile devices of today.
“It’s really great to see that these developers are putting their own spin on the genre,” he told The Washington Examiner.
“This is a very important step in changing the perception of ‘classic’ gaming and how gamers relate to it.
It’s great that Bluebear is coming into this and creating a game that people can enjoy.””
Might,” which is slated for release on June 22, will include 20 minutes of gameplay, according to Bluebear.
That includes a new level, enemies, enemies that can be customized and a bonus that comes with unlocking more secrets.
“Mighty” is expected to be one of the most successful games of the year for a variety of reasons.
Its marketing strategy is to put players in a “game” in the classic video game style.
It has an impressive marketing campaign for the game, including a massive online ad campaign that was posted on YouTube and on the mobile-first “YouTube TV” app, and a successful crowdfunding campaign.
The company also recently launched a mobile app, “Moonshots,” for iOS and Android devices.
BlueBear is working with many developers in order to bring “Mellow” to the smartphone and tablet market.
For instance, Bluebear recently launched an app called “Hip-Hop Games,” which offers video game content, such as “Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition,” which was developed by Ubisoft.
Sznucz said that the company is also working with other major companies to bring its brand of game design to the new generation.
“With our upcoming iOS and Google Play app, we’ll also be bringing ‘Mighthawks’ to iOS and other platforms, as well as a brand new series of ‘Moonshines’ for Android,” he added.
“This is just the beginning of our efforts to make this game available to as many platforms as possible.
We’re always looking for more partners to collaborate with on our next game.”
