Viking Bob – The Game Never to Be
Viking Bob was due to be our next game following on from Super Turbo Action Pig, but we were beaten to the line by another company. We couldn't believe it when we fell across a game that not only had a Viking as the main character, but also had Viking in the name and was, unbelievably, exactly the same game!!!! If we'd continued with this little game we would definitely been seen as copycats, and that isn't in our nature at all. So, our lovely little Viking Bob has been retired to the pages of history as an official non starter. We may still use him in another game we've been toying with, as lets face it, it'd be a waste not too. But for now, Viking Bob is no more. Sorry Bob.
I couldn’t believe my luck when the guys at Two PI Team got in touch about the Wheel of Allods project as it sounded all too cool!!
This site was ace to work on and after playing the game so much I just had to inject as much of that excitement into the design as possible. So overall this was intended to feel like a high paced, neon filled futuristic sports battle zone.
