Yes you read right! Everyone knows about the awesome puzzles, cool art style and internet meme references across the game, but only a few people know that the DrinkBox team is also scattered across the levels!
I had soooo much fun doing art for this game (the art style rocks!), especially when the art department is 2 people (Steph and me) because you get to do a lot of (stressful) exhilirating things. One of such tasks was designing odd-looking characters to populate the levels, and I didn’t need to look far for those…
The characters are built and animated in Flash. First I did a couple of generic templates with the animations and then started to do variations on that design (mainly color and face shape) so a couple of pulls & pushes to the vectors and boom! you get a DrinkBox Dev… or a random hill billy (it’s a fine line).
