a new bontegame: where is cat?
This time the theme of the contest/game jam was 'kids' and the games had to be targeted to young kids (age 6 and older). Since one of the possible constraints of the contest was that the game had to be partly made by one or several children, I proposed to my own kids (aged 5, 8 and 10) to make a game together and they immediately loved the idea! We sat together for a brainstorm and also choose the 'playground' constraint, meaning the game had to be inspired by a traditional children's game and we picked 'hide-and-seek'.
So the concept for the game and the story comes from the children, but they also drew a lot of the individual graphics: a lot of the object that are in the rooms were drawn by them and then imported, processed, colored and combined on the pc. They also made the artworks that were scanned and are on the walls in the game. I hope you enjoy this Bonte family creation. The children are very proud of their game!
You can also get a downloadable standalone adfree windows version of the game here (which you can run fullscreen on your pc) and you can check all the contest entries here. If you like the game, please take a moment to share it. Thanks and enjoy!
