Happy Valentine’s Day from Rival Games!

Since the beginning of this year, we have been working extremely hard at our new office in the heart of Turku, Finland. The atmosphere here has been amazing since day one, and now that we finally got the rest of the needed equipment, the progress during each week is amazing. People working in the game industry certainly do love what they are doing.

Big thanks also goes to Jimm’s PC-Store (http://www.jimms.fi/ ) for fast, reliable and professional help in getting all the necessary gadgets and machines for the new office. They sure do have everything a game developer needs in almost a heartbeat. I’m sure our new partnership will be fruitful in the future for both.

As a little gift for the Valentine’s Day, here is a quick glance at how our graphic artists build that unique graphic novel style of The Detail. In the first set, you can see how one of the backgrounds of the “to serve and protect” department is starting to shape up. The second part shows the same thing with our character design. The character in question is one of the members of the notorious Northside 13 gang. These images are still work-in-progress from the alpha version, so they do not reflect the quality of the end product.

Next time I’ll give you a tour around the new office and some info about becoming a beta tester for the first episode of The Detail.
