|Session Name:||Fizzy Brushstrokes: The Art of 'Knights and Bikes'|
|Company Name(s):||Foam Sword|
|Track / Format:||Visual Arts|
|Overview:||This GDC 2018 talk will feature real-time interaction with the speaker through online chat messaging during its scheduled broadcast. Building upon lessons originally learnt from directing Tearaway (2013) & Tearaway Unfolded (2015), Rex will discuss the creation of the art style for his next game Knights And Bikes. We'll 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.|
