How are you? Well? Good! Me? I’m not bad thanks!
Welcome to Shoobop! The homepage of the conveniently named ‘Team Shoobop’! So, I know what you are asking yourself right now, something like…
Good question! We are a team of 3 guys, Nathan, Somjade and Timbo. We have teamed up in the name of making a game we all would love to see made but know may never happen if we don’t do it ourselves. Let’s take a quick moment to get to know the guys a little better shall we?
Nathan McMullen - Head Writer
The project we are working on is the brain child of Nathan McMullen, a man with an unhealthy love for old Adventure Games, the Simon the Sorcerer games most of all. His keen eye for humour and writing has resulted in many previous collaborations between him and Timbo but this is the first time they will work together on a project as big as this. Think of Nathan as the George R. R. Martin of our project, but hopefully with less Red Weddings!
Somjade Chunthavorn - Artist and Programmer
Somjade is one of those people we all secretly envy, give him something to do and 24 hours and he’ll have mastered it. His ability to adapt to any project is out standing and will prove to be a key building block of this team. He also comes with a sexy history of work including So Many Me and A.R.E.S.: Extinction Agenda. Except some amazing visuals from this man, you won’t be let down.
Timbo Johnson - Writer/PR Thing
Sexy, Amazing in all respects, and loved by everyone, also possibly writing this first article. Timbo’s main love is animation although sharing a love for the project in hand and never turning down an opportunity to work with top talent he has taken the role of assistant writer in this team to help buff out jokes and make fun of silly things.
Although it’s far too soon to go into total detail (it’s more fun to tease you for a while first) I can say we are working on an Adventure Game in a truly old school Point and Click style centred around a group of characters and their adventures when they return to earth hundreds of thousands of years after the human race makes a run for it, only to find the world has changed quite a bit, becoming a holiday home for the Gods of old religions. The game’s currently being referred too as ‘Project Bangheart’ and we are making a tech-demo as I type this which will show off the intro to the game, based on feed back we can tweak and alter the rest of the game to be (we hope) a classic adventure game.
There shall be more on this in the near future as we post development updates, videos, concept art like the one above, and even silly little things we’ve put together to keep ourselves from slipping into madness, or maybe a direct result of us slipping into madness…
So be sure to check back soon for more from Team Shoobop and Project Bangheart!
