Our lovely arty friend Dan made us a new logo. We love it!

It’ll appear at the start of all our new games. Watch out for those soon!

Additionally, we’re hoping to collaborate with Dan on a few projects. Exciting stuff! The guy is an art genius :)

The art of coming back from the dead…

Posted in art, Games, iphone, ipod, News on March 25th, 2010 by George K

Seems the best way is to take a break for a couple of weeks!

Let’s call it a ‘holiday’!

We’re feeling a lot fresher and happier about our upcoming games. Indeed, we’re getting some help in in the form of our good pal Dan, who’s just a fantastic artist.

Seems silly to talk about art and not offer an example… fear not though, we’re hoping to unveil our new logo, created by Dan, within the next week or so…

And that’s just the start! There’s been some progress across about five new games, including a couple that we’d put on the shelf till we found a great artist.

Mission accomplished, and time for the hard work to begin again!

Stay tuned!

Let me tell you a story…

We took some time out and went to a talk at Tate Britain about Narrative in Videogames. It was pretty interesting, and involved such luminaries as Charles Cecil (of Broken Sword fame), and Dave Gibbons (of Watchmen notoriety!).

One interesting point was about audio, and how that’s so important to a game, and yet seems to be left till last.

I wondered what the makers of Guitar Hero, Rez, Vib Ribbon, Surf Rider et al think of that?

It’s also relevant to what we’re doing here at QS. While the basic shape of one of upcoming games is there, and it’s a classic, it’s the music that really shapes the experience.

It’s not a music game though!

We’ll leave you with that taster for now! More soon!
