Behind the scenes: FMV cutscenes

While Game Atelier works on the game, there's also an external animation team preparing cool FMV cutscenes for Monster Boy.

The first work process is to create a rough animatic (b/w preview animation) to define the tempo of the movie. It allows the audio team to start working on the music and more. It also gives a great impression of all scenes so we can discuss details and approve them right away before production. The production time of the cutscenes alone is almost half a year.

Nester the Lark on :

Fully animated cutscenes? In a Monster World game? This just keeps getting better and better! I really like the art style, too!

These will be traditional hand-drawn animation?

FDG, Thomas on :

Thanks! Yes it will be traditional hand-drawn animation ^_^

Colin on :

I hope the cut scenes don't look at of place from the gamplay. Hopefully it is seamless between game-play animation to the cut scene. Love the old wonder boy series, can't wait to play this.
