An interview with Yacine Salmi, founder of Piece of Pie studios, about their upcoming PC/Console game, “Swimming Under Clouds.”
The game revolves around a fish, suspended in a bubble of water, as it explores the world. The amount of water around you serves as your life bar – as you get hit, you lose more water. You can also use water as jets or ammo, but have to be careful to conserve it.
The game has a very heavy Yoshi’s Island vibe, but with some serious physics modeling. Since Yacine used to be a developer over at Havok, that makes a lot of sense.
The art was also all created by Orioto, who you probably know from his HD re-imaginings of classic games: http://orioto.deviantart.com
