Sydney, Australia – September 9, 2015 – Quest’s End Games and The Project Factory are thrilled to reveal their involvement with the creation of the official app for Blinky Bill: The Movie.
The app allows fans to enter the world of Blinky Bill and his friends, adding the iconic characters to their photos and videos. Fans can spin the characters around, make them larger, smaller and save them to their camera roll to share with friends. The app includes all the characters from Blinky Bill the Movie, including Blinky, Nutsy, Jacko, Crackers, Beryl & Cheryl, Wombo, Cranklepot, Sir Claude, and Splodge.
Quest’s End Games, based in Sydney Australia, are comprised of ex-AAA developers who contributed to Rockstar Games’ ‘LA Noire’, as well as critically acclaimed indie releases ‘Particulars’ and ‘TownCraft’ among many others. The studio’s portfolio of strong game development made the studio an obvious choice for creating this fun family app for Flying Bark Productions – the film studio behind Blinky Bill: The Movie.
As Nick Young, Lead Programmer on Blinky Bill explains, “I loved Blinky Bill as a child growing up in Australia, and I feel pretty excited to be sharing this little guy with a new generation of kids in a very new medium that brings him to life like never before. This is the magic of technology meeting the magic of imagination!”
Tima Anoshechkin, Quest’s End Producer, explains the work that went into developing the AR experience: “Due to different processes of development between movie and games industries, we had to redo the rigs and author our own animations. In order to do that we collaborated with extremely talented AIE students and they produced required rigs and animation under very tight deadline – just 7 weeks.”
You can download Blinky Bill on the App Store.
