GDC 2011 interview

Check out this great interview Niv gave at the last GDC expo.
The interview was done by Ben Mears from design3. A small, Santa Cruz CA. based company that teaches game development through the use of video tutorials.

I can totally relate to the fact that, when asked to describe in one word the entire process of developing a game for the last couple of years, Niv simply replies – Insane.

Thanks a lot Ben for doing the interview!

Another Super Exciting Nomination!

We just got the message from Indie Game Challenge that Confetti Carnival is one of the finalists for this important competition.

Aside for the potential prize money, we feel honored to be chosen by leading developers and industry figures. Of course the extra PR this will give us is most welcome.

So what does it all mean? It means that Niv will fly to Vegas to attend DICE Summit and the Indie Game Challenge ceremony. I will stay home this time, crossing my fingers from the other end of the world.

2 weeks after that, Niv, Alon and I (100% of the Confetti Carnival team) will present our game on the floors of GDC, San-Fransisco.

Indeed, extremely fun and exciting times to all of us – and it seems like it’s just the beginning.

What is Confetti Carnival?

More Confetti Carnival Footage Revealed

Not so long ago we made a one-minute pitch video where Niv talks about Confetti Carnival’s concept, gameplay, and basically, points out all the great stuff the game has to offer. It’s not so easy to pack everything we want to say into a one-minute footage, but we’re pretty happy with the outcome.

You might also want to check out our Teaser Trailer (in case you missed it), as each video tells a slightly different story about the game.

SpikySnail is going to GameCity 5!

Posted by on October 8, 2010 | 1 comment

And we’re extremely excited about it.

In two and a half weeks from now, Niv and I will fly over to Nottingham, UK, to present Confetti Carnival at GameCity 5 festival – I’m thrilled about it for so many reasons.

First, GameCity sounds like pure fun! Just talking to the people organizing this event made us feel so welcome. Checking out the schedule, lectures and guests only made us feel more privileged to take part of this event.

Beginning of a level - Everything's still quiet and peaceful

Second, it will be the first time we ever show Confetti Carnival in public, which is exciting and a bit scary at the same time.

Getting people’s reaction is, obviously, very important to us. We’re currently working hard on building the beginning of your adventure, where you learn how to do all the good stuff.

We want people to be able to play the game like we do in terms of controlling your Gummies and performing the stunts – not an easy task considering we have already played it so much.

We are also working hard on a new Versus mode for the game and hope it’ll be ready for the GameCity festival. If we finish it in time for the show, we plan to have Confetti Carnival Contests and promise free beers to the winners (we’re just two Indie guys at the moment – so we focus on small, tasty prizes).

We really hope to see you there and can’t wait for you to try out Confetti Carnival for the very first time.

Confetti Carnival teaser trailer is out

Posted by on September 21, 2010 | 0 comments

New game footage revealed!

We’re very excited to present SpikySnail’s new teaser trailer for our debut title Confetti Carnival.

This is, by far, the most we have ever revealed about our game since we had started working on it about a year and a half ago and I really hope this trailer will increase your appetite to know more.

The teaser was made entirely out of in-game footage (and kudos to Niv again on his awesome work on the real-time physics and fluid simulation).

So turn up the volume, go ‘Full screen’ and enjoy!

Stay Tuned

I still can’t give out all the details but it seems Confetti Carnival is going to have its first ‘outing’ next month. We’re extremely excited, so …

Stay tuned for a special announcement and details where you can come and get your hands on Confetti Carnival!
