With a great homage to old school Nintendo platform games, childhood Lego animation as well as modern voxel based games like Minecraft, our tiny hero sets off on an epic adventure to try to overcome his fear of heights.
And if breathtaking mountains and steep cliffs weren’t enough, an evil, vegetable throwing carrot turns up to block our heroes path. To create the beautiful, happy, cartoony look of our hero and villain, character designer Jonas Dahlbeck went through a small army of sketches before finding the two final designs that were then realised by modelers Pär Andersson and Stefan Berglund.
To manage director Ulf Lundgrens vision, Lost Liner Produtions developed their own in house tools, “lost voxels” for creating, animating and rendering all the thousands of little cubes generating the world and our characters.
