Based in Tinley Park (Illinois), USA
Tira : Tail of Ninja is open-world platformer/adventure
set in a painterly fantasy world inhabited by anthropomorphic feline beasts.
This is story of a lone assassin who found herself in a middle of a strange magical calamity that immersed world into darkness. Now she has to survive, find out what happened to the world and turn it back to normal. Or not.
The project currently in pre-production phase.
Originally, project TIGRA was meant to be something like Prince of Persia but with feline lead character.
Game is quite funny 2D/3D hybrid. Environment is '2D' -- it's geometry generated in-editor by spline, like in Rayman and other games built in UbiArt framework. Characters are 3D-models -- it's much simplier to animate them this way, especially lead character who has lots of complex procedural animation-blendings.
It took A LOT effort spent for Tira to NOT feel like anime-cat-girl(tm), and more like Na'Vi from Avatar movie.
Art was re-done from scratch 4 times. Current version is (almost) what we want it to look like.
- Nimble feline ninja protagonist
- Beautiful painterly world to explore and un-darken
- Bizarre monsters to fight
