Thanks for staying!
I am Nicklas Lundgren, and I have been acting as a producer for our first Android game, “Bouncy the Balloon”.
Normally, I run a web- and communications agency in Sweden, called Novitell.
When my son Elias turned 15 years old, in 2015, he asked me for a job for the summer vacation from school.
At the same time one of my former students on a course in Android programming, Mattias, asked me for a summer job, during his vacation from university studies in game development.
I decided to give the boys a chance to do something out of the ordinary, and we started the development of “Bouncy the Balloon”.
We wanted the game to be something out of the ordinary, while still keeping the great feel from the early games from the 1980s.
I think we have managed quite well. Elias graphics work retains the low poly feeling from games of 8-bit computers like Atari and Commodore 64, while Mattias programming brings a modern touch to the game.
You will be able to enjoy the game in full, without paying us anything. You can actually, with a lot of skills and stubbornness, play through all the worlds without paying anything at all.
However, we appreciate any purchases in the game, as this is the only way for us to finance the forthgoing development of this title with new worlds, new balloons and new challenges. Also, your purchase would help Novitell Game Studios to release new game titles with our specific style and mindset.
Please note, we are not harassing you with any annoying ads at all in the game. We have decided to believe in the generosity of our gamers instead.
Five years after starting the development, Mattias is now an employee at Novitell, where he works part time with web development, part time with this game.
Elias is studying at the university, keeping his skills in creative graphics by helping us on his spare time with 3D animations and imagery.
I aim for having these young men being part of the development of more games in the future. Do you want to know what they have to say about the game? Read on here!
Thanks for helping us building this game studio!
