  • I’m working on a game inspired, in part, by the comic The Light Brigade published by Dark Horse. The exciting thing is that we got the artist and co-creator Peter Snejbjerg working with us. He's worked with DC and Garth Ennis before just give some examples-
    Snejbjerg made some really awesome art assets and worked on all the cutscenes. We tried our best to make the rest of the game look as good and we are all very proud of the results.


    Our game is called Broken Lines, the look is directly inspired by Snejbjerg’s comic aesthetic and the story and gameplay is thematically linked to the The Light Brigade.
    You play soldiers in a version of WW2 caught in a fight they don’t understand, stuck behind enemy lines desperately trying to survive and get home.

    To see Snejbjergs art style take a look at his website

  • I'll check this out when I get home tonight for sure, very cool!

    I remember a few video games in the past that were made to have the comic book feel to them. Comix Zone for the Sega Genesis being the first one to come to mind where you play as the artist trapped in your own comic book. The other being XIII for I think the PS2 and Xbox, which don't hold me to this, but I think was the first cel-shaded video game? Since then there are many more of course, the Borderlands franchise being a popular one. In the style of comic books it had panels, word bubbles, great sounds. Not a masterpiece by any means but not a bad game! Something different that was for sure.

    Good luck with your game I hope it does well!
