So my students (no, rather ex students) of the Film Academy Ludwigsburg achieve a #1 spot on Amazon Germany with their first adventure game "The Inner World".
The project started in a creative camp where the students had to design a universe. One team came up with an unusual setting where creatures lived inside our own existing world, kind of upside down world inside earth depending entirely on light.
The world then was used in my board game design workshop to create a very nice game which was rated pretty good. The students then used the world & board game foundation to create an adventure game concept, which they also used for their diploma.
So that one student came to his diploma review with the papers of his newly founded company Fizzbin, took his diploma and went off creating the adventure "The Inner World" mentioned above.
The game will be released shortly and it seems they get great coverage. Even the most famous youtuber Gronkh will feature it today.
I wish them all the best and many follow up titles!
German quote of the team after this blogpost went online: "WIr wurden ge-gronkhed und geteutet. GOIL."
