Hello and welcome to the Verge development blog.
For a bit more than a year, we’re working on game whose protagonist is lying in a coma. No, it’s not a coma simulator. Or, is it? I really don’t know what people are doing in a coma. Maybe they’re hitting penguins with a baseball bat, or they’re watching all episodes of “Star Trek”. Maybe they’re caught in something like a game, walking through levels and solving puzzles. Write me, if you know.
When I say ”we”, I mean my development team of two and a half men. There’s me, Eugene Kuzmin. You probably know some of my games, like “Ragdoll Cannon“, “Roly-Poly Cannon“ and “Cover Orange“. Then, there’s Vladimir Gusev. In case you know “Roly-Poly Cannon“, “Cover Orange“, “300 Miles to Pigsland“ and “All we need is brain“, his name may ring a bell. The half man is Lesha Babay. He’s known for the internet cartoon “Кочет i курiца“ (Warning! Watch it only at work together with your boss 😉 ). Vladimir and me are working together in my studio, Lesha is doing home office. And that’s the reason I count him as half man. Ressa M.Schwarzwald joined the team recently to work on the audio part of Verge. You’ll get to know more about everybody’s work and tasks in this project.
The game is being produced with the help of FDG Entertainment. The produced and published games such as “Cover Orange“, “Oceanhorn” and “Banana Kong“, as well as the recently announced “Monster Boy“. Philipp Döschl is being the producer.
The question that probably arises now on your (the reader’s) side is “What are they up to? Are they really creating a game with a guy caught in a come? And he’s solving puzzles?”
Turns out these guys are indeed creating such a game. And it’ll be done soon. But until then, we’ll give you insights on the progress of the game’s development. Game development can be a bit boring at times, but funny and interesting things do happen. These are the things you’ll read about in this blog.
P.S.: different team members will contribute to this blog, so don’t be surprised if you see somebody else’s name pop up.
