The “grimsical” title has been revealed with new artwork.
According to EDGE, five Pixar artists have joined together to form the new Steel Wool Studios. Their first game will be FlyHunter, which will release this year under Ripstone.
The artists in question are Sequoia Blankenship, Andrew Dayton, Jonathan Hoffman, Joshua Qualtieri and Jason Topolski. They’ve worked on films like Brave, The Incredibles and Toy Story, and make up more than 60 years of combined experience.
Which can be seen in the art work for the game, that carried the signature swagger and cartoonish awesomeness of Pixar. Andrew Dayton stated that, “We have an internal phrase that we use to describe our style: ‘Grimsical’. It’s our fundamental principle as a company. We create worlds that are funny and whimsical but dipped in gritty tones.”
Sounds like a good approach. Will FlyHunter be coming out on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets with iOS and Android or will it be a digital download title? Stayed tuned for more details.
