The Coral Cave - making of the prototype

If you are interested in the making of our watercolor adventure game the Coral Cave, we have written this long article for the French website Indiemag:

http://www.indiemag.fr/articles/premiers-pas-prototype-coral-cave

It’s about the problems we encountered in the early days of the project.

Even if you can’t read French, you may be interested because you can download the first prototype of the game (it’s very short and rough). You can also ask us questions in English at the bottom of the article’s page. We’ll gladly answer.

Bye bye mountains!

We have spent almost one year in the French Alps, living in a beautiful chalet, surrounded by sheeps, cows, horses and strange insects. It was a very inspiring place for a productive year. 
Tomorrow, early in the morning, we will leave the mountains in search for a new home.

Last Saturday, we went one last time to the lake of Annecy where we swam and sketched those two beautiful castles.

Chilie is a charming game where you solve math puzzles and eat red peppers in company with a dynamic little girl. The game is created by one of our friends from The Icehouse, a collective of indie developpers.

Mizuka - a fan art by John Moogle
A French indiegames enthusiast & ukulele player made this beautiful portrait of Mizuka. We are very moved because it’s the first fan art of The Coral Cave. Mizuka looks so cute and happy!She holds in her hand a figure of the small robot from Machinarium, the game which made us want to create our own game.
Many thanks, John Moogle!
