Techland and Piccolo Studio released the final installment in a three-part series of developer diaries for the artistically enchanting platform adventure game, Arise: A Simple Story. Arise’s emotional tale has captivated the hearts of both critics and fans, and we invite you to keep it in your heart as well for any end of year lists or holiday gift guides you may be working on.
In the video series, Game Directors Alexis Corominas and Jordi Ministral talk about their loving, emotional journey towards creating Piccolo Studio’s debut title and how the two gave up decades-long advertising careers to pursue their dreams of making video games. The videos dive deep into the making of Piccolo Studio’s debut title, its landscapes inspired by Studio Ghibli, the inspiring soundtrack created by BAFTA Award winning composer David García and more.
