Game: A Long Journey into the Mountains

The story of an old man with a dying wish.


Approved for All Audiences: The game must not show any violence, not even cartoonish. Stepping on living mushrooms is off the list, as is killing any type of enemies, not even undead, though we know they’re already dead…

Hi, the game looks really pretty! I wanted to play but it seems the mac download link is broken. Any plan for fixing?

Hi, I don't know if I did something wrong or if it finishes like that but when I enter the cave with wolves the screen always turns white and I've nothing to do besides dying. It that right?

BTW, the paiting seems so beautiful! How you did that?

Hi, in the forest witht he wolves you're supposed to walk faster, so before entering there your heartbeat should be low or you'll die. By doing that you can rest next to the Buddha statues.

Thank you very much for your feedback though! We realize now that the sound and visual feedback is not enough so we'll work on correcting that for future versions.

And about the art, I don't know! It's just Martin's style. He's had a lot of practice.

Great idea, and the art in this game is really amazing. I suppose it's made in photoshop? Can Martins share with us any special brushes or techniques he uses?

Hey, thanks !

So for the art I used a software called corel painter which is amazing and that does really nice renders real quick. It provides a lot of brushes and different canvas type.

I used Photoshop of course for compositing and 2D aninmation, I seperated all the parts into pieces and used some warp tool to move stuff around :) a lot of work but it was worth it ! 

What is great is that corel painter provides a photoshop export so the workflow can be really simple.

I hope you can make it to the end of the game Vanessa
