Spleen: Hand-Painted Indie Game in UE4
6 May, 2019

Fight back your adult problems in a new nostalgic part-life-simulator being created by Pamplemousse Games.

This is a mature, emotional story about finding one’s path in life. In the game you will play as Johann, a discouraged young man feeling pressed by responsibilities. You gain the ability to enter the Kid World and fight back the problems as your childhood self. The action takes place in 2 different worlds:

  • Adult World – make decisions that will affect your day, build relationships with family, coworkers, and friends.
  • Kid’s World – fight back against the Spleen and renew hopes and dreams by finding forgotten memories.

 

“We combine traditional 2D animation and hand-painted watercolor backgrounds to give the game a unique nostalgic look. Although we’re not against using some tricks of technology from time to time!” – says Pamplemousse team.

Here’re some gifs showing the gameplay:

 

Take a look at the short video showing the process of creating game decorations:

Minimum system requirements

  • OS: Windows 7
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E5200
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Graphics: GeForce 9800GTX+ (1GB)
  • DirectX: Version 10

This is the first project for Pamplemousse as a team but the members have been making games already for 12 years.

At this point, the team was able to collect 1/3 of their set goal. You can find much more information and support the project on the page of their official Kickstarter campaign. There you’ll have several donation options and you’re going to receive different rewards depending on the pack that you choose.

Unkempt Flagstones with Mud and Grass Material by Stan Brown is a versatile ground material with many options to change and randomize the Grass, Mud, and Tiles. Custom Alphas can be plugged into the sbsar node, to control the shape of the stone.

Any future updates are included and will be available for download in case they are released.
