|Session Name:||Fizzy Brushstrokes: The Art of 'Knights and Bikes'|
|Company Name(s):||Foam Sword|
|Track / Format:||Visual Arts|
|Overview:||Building upon lessons originally learned from directing 'Tearaway' (2013) and 'Tearaway Unfolded' (2015), Rex will discuss the creation of the art style for his next game 'Knights and Bikes'. This session will look at how the art doesn't just represent how its creator sees the game world, but also how the game characters perceive their own surroundings. So by discussing its early influences, and showing its ugly early-development stages, you'll see why this hand-painted world now looks the way it does. A game-world seen through the eyes of two tough young girls, who pedal their bikes around a rural island in the 1980s, looking for adventure, fizzing with an excess of imagination and energy.|
