Danimations has an exciting new project approaching public beta release. Cuttle Scuttle is our first dalliance in game design, and boy are we having fun with it! Inspired by our work on the documentary film Cuttlefish Country, the game brings the ecology of the temperate reefs off Point Lowly to life, and does it in 8-bit retro-gaming style! So far we’ve presented the prototype at different stages at three events: the launch of whale season at the SA Museum, the World Oceans Night celebration in Whyalla and more recently at AVcon, Adelaide’s anime and video gaming extravaganza.
If you’re yet to get your mits round a controller and play out life as a female cuttlefish, there will be plenty more opportunities ahead. These include at the Science Alive! Expo during National Science Week and Simtect at the Adelaide Convention Centre. We’re also preparing the official beta release of the game to synchronize with our Simtect appearance.
