The first week of Creator Spotlight has Card Shark developed by Nerial, Boomerang X developed by DANG! and Death’s Door developed by Acid Nerve. The second week they had some Indie game companies showcase Minute of Islands developed by Studio Fizbin, Praey for the Gods developed by No Matter and Harold Halibut developed by Slow Bros. What’s interesting is that they go through step by step and talk about the art style and how they incorporated hand-drawn art into a living, breathing game. For 2D games, the process a different type of challenging than 3D games because they are hand-drawn, they need to be put onto a platform where everything is in motion, they have to deal with layers, frame rates and shading through the system in order to bring a still imae to life. Studio Fizbin also went into some detail on how the tedious process of putting a game on Nintendo Switch, there’s days of process in setting it up in a way it can actually be published and playable on the Nintendo Switch.
