IGF 2008: Chat with Petri Purho On 'Crayon Physics'
How much time does it take to develop a game like Crayon Physics Deluxe? What goes through the mind of a game developer? Do independent developers pay close attention to the game mods popping up on the net? If you want to know the answers to those questions, definitely check out the above video. Interviews with developers tend to be on the boring side, but this one definitely held my attention the entire time. Crayon Physics Deluxe was an IGF 2008 Finalist and certainly a game that peaked my interest. I have included a YouTube video below that shows off the game.
Crayon Physics Deluxe is a sequel to the popular freeware game Crayon Physics. Or you can think of it as the game I would have created if I would have had more than 7 days to do it. Way more than 7 days. More like 7 months or 17 months.
Anyway Crayon Physics Deluxe is a 2D physics puzzle game, in which you get to experience what it would be like if your drawings would be magically transformed into real physical objects. Solve puzzles with your artistic vision and creative use of physics.
