Boost Startup Journey and Inpirations

We have been extremely busy at Rival Games during this month. For that reason, we haven’t had the chance to update our blog as much as we would have wanted to.

Rival Games was accepted into Boost Startup Journey -program (http://www.boostturku.com/startupjourney ) three weeks ago. It has been time consuming and challenging, but at the same time we have received invaluable insights, ideas, and experience. We also received priceless feedback (Much Obliged!) from various sources, and it has given us much to work and focus on.

The art and visual appereance have been most influenced by the two graphic-novel storytelling veterans: Alan Moore and Frank Miller. They always create appealling and touching stories, with memorable moments and stunning visual appereances. Many other artists and sources have also had an effect on the design, like Aurelio Galleppini (creator of Tex Willer), Blade Runner (A Game by Westwood Studios), and Full Throttle (LucasArts) but to name a few.

Thats it for now. We will keep you posted as we travel deeper into the dark and unforgiving world of The Ricochet Reaction.
